Merry Kiss-mas – A Fabulous New Holiday Tradition from Vancouver TheatreSports

Vancouver TheatreSports League production of Merry Kiss-mas was a departure from previous performances, but it’s a very welcome addition, and I predict it will be a holiday tradition for many years to come. Go. You’ll be so glad you did! And Happy Holidays, everyone.

Vancouver TheatreSports™ Proves Going Back to School Can Be Fun

Ah, high school. I remember it well, even though it was (ahem) ‘many’ decades ago.  For me, it meant mounds of homework, getting used to co-ed classes, slogging through the awkward, teen angst years, and being part of the chorus (AGAIN??) in the annual musical production. And what do you know? The quick-witted ensemble cast … Read more

Christmas Queen 4 – Secret Santa Continues a Beloved (and Hilarous) Holiday Tradition

  Forget the piped-in carols, Santa hats and Christmas decorations. For me, the holiday season doesn’t start until Her Royal Meanness, the blue-haired, buxom Christmas Queen makes her appearance on the Vancouver TheatreSports™ stage. For the past three years the Royal we all love to hate has done her best to ruin Christmas for everyone – and … Read more

Improv Wars – The Laugh Jedi is Improv at its Best

Here’s the backstory. All is not well … Read more
