The most hilarious (and regal) Christmas present you haven’t considered yet

You seriously won't find the same one anywhere else.

It’s the gift that keeps you laughing…and laughing…and laughing.

Roar with laughter at these royally funny shows from Vancouver TheatreSports (VTSL) this winter. The Christmas Queen returns for her fourth season in Christmas Queen 4 – Secret Santa, and as an extra special treat, she’ll be gracing us with her presence in five late-night shows, Christmas Queen Drag Race. No two shows are ever the same, so you can even see the same show twice and still bust a gut every time.

In Christmas Queen 4 – Secret Santa, HRM (Her Royal Meanness) tries once again to ruin Christmas – and she just might when a bit of Freaky Friday style magic causes her and Santa to exchange bodies. Will she finally triumph? Or will this Christmas magic leave us with a warm and fuzzy lesson learned?

If you’re looking for something a bit raunchier, the royally hilarious and very outrageous Christmas Queen Drag Race is the show for you. Drag star, The Unstoppable Conni Smudge is co-hosting with CQ. Come see these two Grande Dames and watch the (lace) gloves come off as the VTSL ensemble members compete for the title of Drag Diva.

Enjoy some liquid Christmas cheer with three specially-crafted drinks at the Neil McCrae Bar and Lounge – bonus you can bring your drinks in to the theatre to enjoy during the show!

  • Ready to laugh like a bowl full of jelly? Try the Jolly Juice made with Amaretto, vanilla vodka, and cranberry juice, garnished with a mini candy cane - bright red in honour of Santa.
  • Want to defrost? The North Pole will warm you right up. Made with Rumchata, spiced rum, eggnog with a sprinkle of cinnamon, topped with a frosty white candy cane. This one is elf-recommended after a long day in the Workshop.
  • Or treat yourself to some Royal Baubles, a personal-sized mini bottle of Henkell Rosé. Everyone knows that pink bubbles are the favoured libation of Queens.

You won’t have to worry about shopping this holiday season either, with VTSL’s gift certificates. Give the gift of laughter to a loved one, we guarantee they won’t re-gift it – and if you’re on their nice list, we’re sure they’ll bring you along.
