VTS’ holiday special parodies all the inane clichés and tropes you would expect to see in any popular holiday TV special or film. In this instance, the 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?
Overseen by Chris Garland, famous celebrity wedding planner, this romcom parody sees VTS improvisers use audience suggestions to create on-the-spot, never-to-be-repeated comedic versions of stereotypical romcoms as well as Royal Wedding characters and situations. Flashbacks will take the audience to key moments in the couple’s courtship and the action moves forward to the day of the wedding – ‘Kissmas Day’.
Merry Kissmas – A Royal Romance is suitable for families with children ages 8 and up. For more information, follow Vancouver TheatreSports on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and the Miss604 improv tag.
