Vancouver TheatreSports’ The Christmas Queen, in all her nasty glory is returning this holiday season with the latest installment in the series, Christmas Queen 4 – Secret Santa, running from November 22 to December 23, Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 pm. There will also be two additional matinee performances on Sunday, December 10 and December 17 at 2 pm. All performances take place at The Improv Centre on Granville Island.
The previous three editions of Christmas Queen saw HRM (Her Royal Meanness) hilariously thwarted in her attempts to ruin Christmas. This year is no exception. Confusion and hijinks ensue when the Queen and Santa exchange bodies in a Freaky Friday-style magical sleight-of-hand. What happens to the Workshop’s Toy Factory with The Queen as Santa in charge? Will there be presents? Will everyone receive a lump of coal? How will the experience of inhabiting the Queen’s body affect Santa? Will he learn something about himself and her that will change Christmas forever?
The answers are revealed as VTSL’s ever-resourceful ensemble players take audience suggestions and turn them into 90 minutes of holiday hilarity. No two shows are ever the same thanks to the unpredictable nature of the suggestions and the creative talents of the players.
