See the Vancouver comedy turning cheesy holiday rom-coms on their heads

Nov 19 2019, 2:35 pm

It’s that time of year again. There are endless artisanal markets, Black Friday deals, and of course the dreaded malls — but where are you going to get the perfect gift?

The holidays may be the most stressful time of the year, but Vancouver TheatreSports (VTS) is here to bring you some LOL-iday cheer with Merry Kissmass – A Royal Romance.

And if you’re on the nice list, they might be able to help with your gifting woes, too.

Follow Meaghan Sparkle (pun intended) as her whirlwind romance turns into, you guessed it, a royal romance. Packed with clichés from all your favourite holiday TV specials and feature films, VTS brings them to life on stage at The Improv Centre on Granville Island.

Will Meaghan Sparkle fit in with her new royal relatives? Will her prince be disinherited? Will the magic of Christmas work in their favour so that there is a ha-ha-happy ever after?

Whatever happens is up to you, the audience, as with any VTS show. Audience participation is encouraged but never mandatory.

Merry Kissmas/VTS

You can unwind with this laugh fest from November 20 to December 24, every Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 pm. Plus there are also four matinee performances:

  • Sunday, December 15 at 11:30 am
  • Saturday and Sunday, December 21 and 22 at 11:30 am
  • Tuesday, December 24 at 2 pm

Tickets start as low as $10.75 online.

Tired of looking for the perfect present? Stress less, and gift more with a VTS gift certificate, available in a range of denominations to suit every budget. Remember, they can’t re-gift laughter — and VTS gift certificates can be applied to a show or improv classes. You can purchase these online, at the Box Office, or over the phone at 604-738-7013 (ext. 21).

Don’t forget you can get a group together and get a discount with VTS’ LOL-iday bookings. Whether it’s an office party, birthday celebration, or just a night out, VTS offers discounts on groups of ten or more — plus everything is better when you laugh together.

It may be the most stressful time of year but it doesn’t have to be with VTS. So what are you waiting for? Get your tickets before they sell out — whether they’re gifts for someone else, or you’re treating yourself,  it’s bound to be a bowl-full-of-jolly. And who knows, you might meet-cute a royal in disguise at the show — or at least someone royally funny.
