This is the time of year when screens large and small are filled with sappy, warm-hearted romantic comedies, and the stage at The Improv Centre is no exception. VTS’ holiday special parodies all the inane clichés and tropes you would expect to see in any popular holiday TV special or film. Boy (or girl) meets girl (or boy), they fall in love, they have an argument or someone jeopardizes the relationship, they patch things up, and the story ends with their nuptials.
Whether it’s with a group of ‘ghoulfriends’ getting together for a night out, or a romantic date, Vancouver TheatreSports™ (VTS) dares you to laugh this October with its spirited lineup of Halloween-themed shows taking place Tuesday, October 22 to Thursday, October 31 at The Improv Centre on Granville Island.
The SuperDad Show pokes fun at the foibles and challenges of what it means to be a modern Dad. Based on audience suggestions, VTS’ quick-witted improvisers could explore such timeless themes as ‘two-Dad families’, ‘Dads and their love affair with the barbecue’, ‘hockey Dads’, ‘Dad, can I have the keys to the car?’
