TheatreSports on Granville Island – St. Valentine's Day Massacre (Jan 19 to Feb 14) & MMV Giveaway

 Whether you’re nursing a broken heart or fanning the flames of newfound love, the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre is the perfect Valentine’s night out!

Vancouver TheatreSports League hosts the 24th annual St. Valentine’s Day Massacre – an international improv tournament of epic proportions. Hosting teams from as far away as Paris, this promises to be the best St. Val Massacre yet. Hold onto your seat as teams compete head-to-head! Come and experience styles of improv from across the globe.

Vancouver TheatreSports League is improv comedy – everything you see onstage is made up on the spot. It’s an interactive entertainment experience as the players ask for audience suggestions to create their scenes.  They’ll usually invite an audience member up onstage.

Tips for first-timers?

  • Relax – Nobody gets picked on, or called up onstage, who doesn’t want to – there are plenty of audience members who gladly offer up suggestions, or get onstage.
  • Enjoy – Vancouver TheatreSports has some of the best talent in the industry – many of their performers have been involved in improv since its rise to popularity in the 80s.  For example, Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie of Whose Line Is It Anyway are both alumni of TheatreSports.

St. Valentine’s Day Massacre pits world-class improv teams from across the continent and around the world against each other – resulting in some of the craziest, most hilarious improvised comedy ever seen!  Follow your favourite team as they duel their way to the final match. Joining the winners of the Vancouver competition are visiting teams from Austin,Bellingham,Chicago, Seattle, and Paris, France. Then, come and see them compete to be the last team standing in the Final Massacre!

Tickets are as affordable as $8.75 for students and $11.75 for adults.  For show times, information and ticket sales see www.vtsl.com

    I’d bring my ‘are we aren’t we’ friend. Sometimes it kind of feels like we should be dating? Maybe we could talk about it after this…

    I would bring my boyfriend Jordan. It’s always a challenge finding things to do in the Vancouver area because we’ve both grown up here and seen it all. This is one thing I’ve never heard of and I don’t believe Jordan has either. We both enjoy comedy shows and telling jokes with our friends so I really think this show would be the best valentines surprise!
