There are several ways to get in the holiday spirit, and one of which is immersing yourself in Vancouver's diverse theatre scene. Here is a list of some holiday productions that will put you in a holly jolly mood:
Arts Club presents The Sound Of Music
When: November 7, 2019 - January 5, 2020

The hills are alive! One of the most powerful and romantic musicals of all time, The Sound of Music brims with beloved tunes such as “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” and “Edelweiss.” Journey along with the spirited Maria, who takes a governess position with the von Trapp family, falling first for the children and then the widower Captain von Trapp himself, all against the stirring backdrop of pre-WWII Austria.
Merry Kissmas – A Royal Romance
When: November 20, 2019 - December 24, 2019

A heartwarming and hilarious take on sappy-holiday Hallmark movies, a fairy-tale romance is made even more unbelievable by building the plot around an impending Royal Wedding in a heretofore unknown small country – ‘Improvanzia’. Will the dashing Prince Rudolf fall for the beauteous, but non-royal, Meaghan Sparkle? How will the Royal parents react? How will the suburban in-laws-to-be fit in with the posh Royal relatives?
