The Arts Club Theatre Company is pleased to bring back a Christmas classic that has definitely become a Vancouver holiday tradition. I’m looking forward to seeing it again with John but you can also read my review from last year which includes Miss604’s guide to the ultimate holiday evening in Vancouver. I have once again been given the opportunity to do a contest for two tickets so that my readers can experience this great night of theatre.

Update: I just drew “Sinful” as the winner! The congratulatory email has been sent and in the event they cannot attend, I will re-draw for the tickets. Thank you to everyone for entering & helping to spread the word about this great show.

    Fantastic. Count me in.

    In my old age, I don’t get out to the stage productions much anymore and miss it. As a kid, it wasn’t Christmas until we saw a Christmas play or pantomime. Something about the audience all primed for the good of the season together, and the feeling that brings with it. It’s nice.

    I’d love to be entered into the draw. Thanks, Rebecca!
