Mother’s Day is fast-approaching, but have you made any plans with your mom yet?
Remember, she’s been there through it all. She’s made you countless lunches, grounded you, and taken you to recitals and practice. She’s done your laundry, yelled at you to clean your room, and critiqued your appearance in front of your friends.
She’s taken care of you when you were sick, told you to stand up straight more than a dozen times. She depends on you and you alone to help her do anything on the computer. She calls you ten times a day to say “hi.” And naturally, she loves you unconditionally.
So, this Mother’s Day, you have the chance to celebrate the woman who nagged you relentlessly (out of love) for years, by making her laugh. You know she deserves it. And we know how you can make it happen. Vancouver TheatreSports (VTS) presents MOM=WOW – ‘The Mother of All Mother’s Day Shows’ on Sunday, May 13.
It’s taking place at the Improv Centre on Granville Island at 4 pm (bonus points if you treat her to lunch before the show, OR dinner after the show). Tickets to the show cost only $25 via VTSL and include a Henkell piccolo of bubbly or a glass of Mission Hill Five Vineyards Rosé (or a non-alcoholic beverage if preferred).
This special event is sure to make mom literally laugh out loud, while VTS’s players explore every aspect of motherhood through short scenes. Re-visit the moments you and your mom have been trying to repress with ‘Momvolution – from new Mom to Grandmom.’
Get giggling at all your favourite tropes with ‘Movie Moms.’ Bust a gut and some myths with ‘Mom Myths’ (plot twist she actually does know how to send an email). Add to the fun by encouraging mom to share suggestions during the show, as in all VTS shows the plot, characters and action are co-developed with the audience for a unique and completely unscripted show – she’ll feel like someone is actually listening to her for once!
This is one Mother’s Day gift that won’t disappoint. Get your tickets soon before they sell out and your only choice is another macaroni necklace!
