Tylor Van Riper

Co-Founder/Writer/Executive Producer

Now based in Tkaronto, Tylor originated from the Alberta Prairies, where he began his career as a singer and actor. His training and career goals carried him to Tkaronto, where he trained at Randolph College & The Second City, and across the pond to Guildford, England, where he earned his Master of Arts in Musical Theatre from the University of Surrey. 

Through his travels, Tylor has become an accomplished singer, actor, and songwriter, who has performed and written for many of the world's stages. As a proudly queer artist with repressive roots, he has a passion for telling stories which will inevitably bring light to under-represented and marginalized members of society.
