(Vancouver, BC) – Ahoy there! On February 21, join Vancouver TheatreSports™ (VTS) for the maiden voyage of the ‘comedy cruise ship’ yeSyeS TheatreSports at Improv Voyage — a ‘three-hour-cruise’ special event. VTS’ home theatre, The Improv Centre on Granville Island, will be transformed into a cruise ship setting for this special themed evening. On board you’ll meet all the crew one would expect to find – the comedic Captain and Cruise Director along with a host of other embedded characters will ensure guests an enjoyable experience of nautical fun.
Once you’ve cleared security, join fellow passengers along the Promenade Deck for the “Mustard Drill’ or meander over to the Atrium to bid on one of the many ‘shorex’ (silent auction prize) packages offered at the Excursion Desk. Perhaps the Starlight Theatre is more to your liking where musical and improv comedy entertainment awaits your pleasure. Hungry? Wander over to the Captain’s Table in the Lounge where the insufferable Maitre d’ is sure to insult you. If the weather is nice, enjoy the sunset from the ship’s bow as you sip on something suitably celebratory. Wendy D Photo, our on-board cruise photographer, will be roving the decks to capture your special moments, or you may prefer a more formal portrait taken at the pop-up photo station.
As this ‘cruise ship’ never leaves port, you don’t have to worry about luggage, flights, customs or passports and there’s no possibility of sea sickness. It’s smooth sailing all the way as you laugh yourself silly at the antics of the crew and fellow passengers.
Unlike most cruises, this one won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Early bird tickets available now through January 31 for only $45.99; on February 1, the price increases to $59.99. Ticket price includes savoury hors d’oeuvres, Sundae Bar, one drink (either alcoholic or non-alcoholic), all ‘on-ship’ activities and entertainment. Book now through the VTS travel agent at 604-738-7013 or online at www.vtsl.com
This night is sure to be a Titanic hit (minus the iceberg), filled with captain approved chuckles. Don’t let this ship sail without you. Sea you there. Bon Voyage!
