Vancouver TheatreSports™ League (VTSL) celebrates the season of goblins and Jack-O-Lanterns with its own SPOOKtacular event – Halloween Monster Match, Saturday October 29 starting at 7:30 pm at The Improv Centre on Granville Island.
For this one night, the Improv Centre is transformed with HAUNTing décor into an eerie sepulchre worthy of any Demon or night-loving Vampire. The evening features costumed performers in head-to-HEADLESS TheatreSports matches – all but the most cunning ghoul will perish. You’ll be TREATED to two on-stage matches plus you can shake your bones to the BLOODCURDLING beats of DJ Peter (of Allgood Entertainment) at the DANSE MACABRE where you’ll be joined on the dance floor by the performers.
Have your palm read by Madame Improvo or visit Poe Corner, where the spectre of a long-dead poet will SPELLBIND you with improvised POEms that The Raven itself would find beguiling. Mix and mingle with Denizens of the Dark (roving performers) who’ll delight you with their TRICKy antics. You’ll find DEVIL MAY CARE specials on potions and poisons at VTSL’s Neil Macrae Bar and Lounge. Sink your fangs into pizza by the slice and everyone who attends will receive a complimentary ‘goblet’ of WITCH’S BREW to help set the mood. Join the Costume Parade – the audience votes for the best costume with the winner receiving an invitation to every VTSL opening night for a year.
Doors open at 7:30 pm, the first match starts at 8:15 pm. Ticket price of $33/adults, $25/students includes admission to both shows, dancing, costume parade, and the complimentary glass of Witch’s Brew. As Count Dracula would say, it’ll be a very “gooood evening.”
