(Vancouver, BC) – You’ve probably given your Mother more than a few grey hairs over the years; isn’t it about time you gave her some laughs instead?
This Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 12th) Vancouver TheatreSports™ (VTS) marks the day and celebrates Moms everywhere with its ‘mother of all Mother’s Day shows’ – MOM=WOW; a special, one-performance-only, Mom-themed show just for her.
MOM=WOW explores the many facets of motherhood through different short scenes. Mom will laugh ‘til her sides hurt with vignettes such as ‘Movie Moms,’ ‘Momvolution – from new Mom to Grandmom,’ ‘Mom Myths,’ or ‘Tiger Mommy’ to name a few of the endless possibilities that could arise. As in all VTS shows, the plot, characters and action are co-developed with the audience – utilizing their suggestions to create on-the-spot, unscripted comedy.
MOM=WOW starts at 4 p.m – giving you plenty of time for a leisurely brunch before the show or allowing you to book a dinner after the performance (which lets out about 5:20 p.m.).
The Neil Macrae Bar & Lounge at VTS’s Improv Centre will open that day at 3:30 p.m. for pre-show drinks and, if the weather is good, the patio deck over-looking the picturesque Marina will also be available. Bar Manager Paul has a special on piccolo bottles of sparkling Henkell Trocken Rosé for only $6.75 (usually $9.75) and Mission Hill Five Vineyards Rosé by the glass ($6.75) or the bottle ($34). Patrons have the option of taking their beverages in to the theatre to enjoy during the show.
Tickets are value-priced at only $25 and include the show PLUS either a Henkell piccolo, or a glass of Mission Hill Five Vineyards Rosé or a glass of House Wine (red or white) or a non-alcoholic beverage. Tickets are on sale now
Give the mothers and grandmothers in your life a good laugh (or several) and join VTSL at The Improv Centre at 4 p.m. on May 12th for MOM=WOW. It will win you big Brownie Points.
