VTSL Grapes of Laugh banner

Join Vancouver TheatreSports™ on February 25 for Grapes of Laugh, an evening of great wine, tasty eats, fabulous auction items plus emcees Fred Lee and Howard Blank.

This special evening of improv and wine will go towards supporting VTSL’s community outreach and youth programs, allowing VTSL to provide regular free performances at Ronald McDonald House as well as free tickets to organizations including The Children’s Wish Foundation and Covenant House.

Grapes of Laugh will also help to underwrite the cost of VTSL’s province-wide school tours. In 2015, VTSL visited over 110 schools and performed to more than 35,000 school children.

“Students got to participate with the performers on stage, give suggestions, ask questions, and laugh their socks off the whole time. They … saw firsthand the timing, spontaneity, mental agility, verbal control, and thoughtful detail that went into crafting a scene out of random suggestions and no prep time. …This experience got me thinking how lucky we are that organizations like VTSL exist and are willing to support our schools.” — Ditidaht Community School, Port Alberni

With the persuasive banter of MCs Lee and Blank, guests have the opportunity to bid on some pretty sweet auction items such as a Cheap and Cheerful Wine Tasting — a private wine tasting in your home given by wine journalist/blogger Ron Wilson of Cheapandcheerful.ca). An in-demand consultant, Ron will guide you through a tasting of selected whites, rosés and reds, entertaining you with stories from both the wine world and his years as a CBC journalist.
Another fabulous auction item to bid on: A Granville Island Staycation. Spend a night in the Granville Island Hotel’s luxurious penthouse with magnificent views overlooking False Creek and the downtown lights. This generous package includes breakfast the next morning at the award-winning Dockside Restaurant. Staycations don’t get any better than this!
