A live Golden Girls puppet show is coming to Vancouver


The Golden Girls may have gone off the air over 20 years ago, but Blanche, Dorothy, Rose, and Sophia live on in our hearts (and syndication). Now there’s a Golden Girls puppet show that’s coming to Vancouver for a one-night performance.

Called “Thank You For Being a Friend,” (also the show’s beloved theme song, sorry about the earworm) the show is an Aussie production described as “a loving tribute to the 1980s sitcom The Golden Girls performed with puppets and their character-perfect actors.”

Promising the “ultimate Golden Girls experience,” the all-ages show lands in Vancouver at the Vogue Theatre on Wednesday, February 13, 2019–perfect for Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day.
