Halloween Howl Special Event: October 26

Whether it’s with a group of ‘ghoulfriends’ getting together for a night out, or a romantic date, Vancouver TheatreSports dares you to laugh this October with its spirited lineup of Halloween-themed shows taking place Tuesday, October 22 to Thursday, October 31 at the Improv Centre on Granville Island. Aptly named Spooktober, this limited-run seasonal celebration of all things eerie features three different shows and a very special event you’ll be dying to attend!

Monster Matches: October 22, 23, 29, and 30

Monster Matches pits teams of monsters against one another in a series of ‘head-to-headless’ short-form scenarios to see who ‘eeks’ out the most laughs. Will the werewolves defeat the witches? Or zombies overcome the vampires? In this fast-paced ‘roller ghoster’, the winner is determined by audience judges.

Cult Fiction – Everyone Laugh Together: October 24, 25, and 31 – November 2

Cult Fiction – Everyone Laugh Together is framed as a documentary. Hosted by an investigative journalist, the players utilize audience suggestions to spin a ‘spell-binding’ tale behind the cult, including the core cult belief and some of its unique traits. The more ridiculous the suggestions, the more inventive the action and the louder the laughter.

Kreepy Kitty: October 24, 26, and 31

Kreepy Kitty sees the action of the show directed by an evil kitty from its window perch. This is one ‘fur-midable’ feline with plenty of ‘cat-itude’ whose ‘claw-yer’ commands lead to plenty of comedic ‘hiss-terics’.

Halloween Howl Special Event: October 26, 7:30pm - 10:30pm

The evening features costumed performers in two head-to-headless TheatreSports matches, where all but the most cunning ghoul will perish. Guests can also shake their bones to the bloodcurdling beats of a DJ at the ‘Danse Macabre’ and have their palms read by ‘Madame Improvo’ or visit ‘Poe Corner’ where the spectre of a long-dead poet will spellbind with improvised ‘POEms’ that even The Raven would find beguiling. Mix and mingle with ‘Denizens of the Dark’ (roving performers), who’ll delight with their tricky antics. Prizes will be awarded for best costumes. For tickets, visit www.vtsl.com.
