Teatro’s pre-Christmas revels have been a tradition at the Varscona Theatre for nearly a decade, beginning with five years of It’s a Wonderful Life, followed by four years of The Nutcracker Unhinged. For our first Christmas in the new building, it seems only fitting that we contrive an entirely new celebratory seasonal spectacle, so that’s what exactly what we’ve got in the works. For two performances only, December 9th and 10th, we’ll present A Wild Christmas in Tails, an elegantly free-wheeling holiday whoop-up featuring many of your favourite Teatro players.
The highlight of the Teatro off-season is nearly upon us, and we’re pretty excited. On December 31st at 7:30, we’ll present our first new year’s eve special in the brand new Varscona Theatre. It’ll be a red letter version of what is already a one-of-a-kind event, filled with elegant amusements, celebratory music, and as always, a special premiere offering from Stewart Lemoine- a small play with a very large cast.
We’ll have more information about who’ll be appearing as we get closer to the event, but for now we can guarantee an sparkling good time, snacks at intermission, and everybody’s favourite Varscona New Year’s tradition... Celebrity Musical Chairs! The fun starts promptly at 7:30pm and the show runs approximately 2 hours, so you’ll have plenty of time to get to wherever it is you’ll be counting down to midnight. And we’ve got our own countdown… to the end of the show!
