It’s Tuesday and you’re already stressed that you have no idea what you’re going to do this weekend. Don’t be too sad though, we here at Evolution have a bunch of cool ideas that will guarantee you have a blast!
If you love Hallmark Christmas movies as much as I do Vancouver Theatresports has the perfect comedy show for you! Merry Kissmas – A Royal Romance is an improvised parody of all your favourite cliches. VTS improvisers will be using audience suggestions to create a RomCom unlike any other. The show is from Wednesday to Sunday until Christmas Eve so you have plenty of time to go at least once or twice!
You still have time to catch Cirque du Soleil at Vancouver’s Concord Pacific Place. They’ve set up their iconic Grand Chapiteau big top tent. This year’s show is Luzia, a fantasy story set in Mexico. The show is centred around the elements of light and water. The only thing you can expect at Cirque du Soleil is the unexpected and this year’s show should be no exception!
Bah Humbug! is a Downtown Eastside take on the classic story “A Christmas Carol”. In this version of the story Scrooge is a heartless pawnshop owner/hotel landlord who evicts his helpless clientele. This humorous but also tragic musical is directed Michael Boucher and stars Juno Award Winner Jim Byrnes as Scrooge. It goes from Wednesday the 4th to the 21st at SFU Woodward’s Goldcorp Centre for the Arts.
Finally if you’re looking for something a little more boozy, there’s the 2019 Christmas Carol Boat Cruise. Get aboard the luxurious Abititi located Dock B at the Plaza of Nations for an unforgettable Christmas Buffet. The four hour cruise has music by DJ Rob Steel who definitely knows how to keep the party going. Oh and did I mention there’s a Chocolate Fountain? Nuff’ said.
Hopefully one of these four events will suit your mood this weekend, and if not thankfully there’s more than enough to do in beautiful Vancouver!
