(Vancouver, BC) Join Vancouver TheatreSports (VTS) for seasonal mirth and merriment from November 21 through December 24 as the ‘VTS Channel’ presents Merry Kiss-mas – an improvised holiday comedy that parodies all the inane clichés and funny awkward moments you’d expect to see in any popular holiday special. A new Yuletide tradition, Merry Kiss-mas celebrates those cheesy, tinsel-covered movies we all love to watch at this time of year. This show is suitable for families with children ages 7 and up. In addition to the evening performances there are five matinees:
Utilizing short form scenarios and audience suggestions, the first half of the show is a nostalgic look at some of the most popular holiday TV shows and films from the past. VTS improvisers will use the suggestions to create their comedic versions of scenes and characters from these much-beloved holiday specials.
The second half of the show is a completely improvised, original holiday special featuring all the tropes you’d expect to see. This comedy confection will leave you laughing like a bowl full of jelly, as our improvisers re-create well-known festive scenes and characters. Get on Santa’s good list and see it twice, as with any VTS show, no two shows are ever the same. We all know there’s a happy ending, how we get there is where all the turkey-full of belly laughs are to be found.
This show is suitable for families with children ages seven and up. In addition to evening performances, VTS will also be presenting five matinee performances:
- Saturday and Sunday, December 15 & 16 at 11:30 a.m.
- Saturday and Sunday, December 22 & 23 at 11:30 a.m.
