 Opera Mariposa presents Verdi's UN BALLO IN MASCHERA
Venue: Marpole United Church
Time: 7:30pm
Half-price Tickets: $17.50 (incl.$3.50 service fee)
In Un ballo in maschera (A Masked Ball), a secret love triangle and a political conspiracy collide one fateful night at a masquerade. The opera has a controversial history, having originally been blocked by censors for depicting the assassination of a monarch. Verdi was forced to change the setting, the characters, and even the title in order to bring the opera to the stage. Now, over 150 years after Ballo's 1859 premiere, Mariposa and Heroic are restoring the original plot and bringing Verdi's masked ball to life with a stellar international cast.

Firehall Arts Centre presents Only Drunks and Children Tell The Truth

Time: 3:00pm, 8:00pm
Half-price Tickets: $20.50 (incl. $4.00 service fee)
3:00pm Ticket sales end by 12pm
Written by celebrated Indigenous playwright Drew Hayden Taylor, Only Drunks and Children Tell The Truth is the gripping account of the "60's scoop-up" phenomenon, in which Native children were taken from their families, their communities, and their culture to be adopted into white households. Dealing with themes of abandonment, reconciliation, identity, and cultural dissonance, this comically rich and devastatingly truthful production, first produced by the Firehall in the 90's, is an unforgettable piece of Canadian theatre.

She's baaack! The Christmas Queen returns this holiday season with the latest installment in the series, Christmas Queen 4 - Secret Santa. 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.

An award winning theatrical social commentary packed with high level circus skills. Smashing the audience's preconceptions of the juggling arts, The New Conformity uses juggling as the background of a touching story with engaging silent characters and laugh out loud humour. The show brings to light a universal struggle of the modern age: the comfort of conformity versus the freedom of individuality - all told through tightly choreographed prop manipulation, martial arts and physical theatre.

the Comedy MIX presents Tom Rhodes
Venue: the Comedy MIX
Time: 8:00pm, 10:30pm
Half-price Tickets: $12.75 (incl. $2.75 service fee)
The show is formatted to be your typical late night American talk show but what makes it unique is it's an American experiencing and being taught Dutch culture and society and I interview Dutch celebrities including writers, politicians, rock stars and movie and TV stars. The show is a testament to how smart Dutch people are in that all of their celebrities can come on and be interviewed in English and from what I've been told this is the first show in The Netherlands hosted by a none Dutch speaking foreigner ever. The show is a rib-tickle and considering Holland's progressive laws, the voice of reason in the world courts and the lack of censorship of any kind on their television and in their media it may be hard to get me to leave the land of windmills and gentle people any time soon.
