She’s baaack! The Christmas Queen, in all her nasty, bitchy glory returns this holiday season with the latest installment in the series, Christmas Queen 4 – Secret Santa. The previous three editions of Christmas Queen saw HRM (Her Royal Meanness) hilariously thwarted in her attempts to ruin Christmas. This year is no exception. Confusion and hijinks ensue when the Queen and Santa exchange bodies in a Freaky Friday-style magical sleight- of-hand. What happens to the Workshop’s Toy Factory with The Queen as Santa in charge? Will there be presents? Will everyone receive a lump of coal? How will the experience of inhabiting the Queen’s body affect Santa? Will he learn something about himself and her that will change Christmas forever?
The answers are revealed as VTSL’s ever-resourceful ensemble players take audience suggestions and turn them into 90 minutes of holiday hilarity. No two shows are ever the same thanks to the unpredictable nature of the suggestions and the creative talents of the players.

Be forewarned: Christmas Queen will be over-the-top silly, with convoluted plot twists, a mix of one-liners and slapstick and an ending that may make little or no sense. But if you’re tired of the usual holiday entertainment – the Nutcrackers and It’s a Wonderful Lives and Grinches Who Stole Christmas and all the other predictable yuletide fare – it might just save Christmas for you."
It just wouldn’t be the holidays without eggnog lattes, candy canes, twinkling lights and … a giant blue-haired drag queen?... Whether you’re naughty, nice, or somewhere in between, you’ll be shouting “ho ha ha” at the Christmas Queen."
As December has started, I needed an event to kick start my holiday spirit and this performance did the trick! It was playful, entertaining and I literally caught myself laughing out loud."
Christmas Queen 3-The Bachelorette Edition reigns as an absurdly fun holiday tradition...There’s something comforting in seeing the same old movies and plays each winter, but for my money it’s better to encounter some familiar characters in new and unfamiliar situations. Christmas Queen 3: The Bachelorette Edition is the most absurd entry into the season you’ll find. And that’s a good thing."
This is the funnest place to be in Vancouver. We were happy to attend the Christmas Queen 3, a hilarious rendition of the Bachelor/Bachelorette with the Christmas Touch. Every time we've been to Theatre Sports, every time we've come out with sore stomachs (due to so much laughter). Each of the performers are quick witted and each have amazing stage presence. The venue, the friendly staff, and bartenders, all run consistent to the entertainment; Pure downright Fun. We will of course be back!"
