Venue Performance Works, Granville Island (map).
Doors @7:15, Show @ 8pm
Bar from 7:15pm to 11:30pm
Spend your night cruising in the company of the Vancouver Men’s Chorus exploring all things manly in MEN – the 2015 VMC cabaret at Performance Works on Granville Island. MEN blazes a trail through the burly-brawny, sometimes brainy, clever, yet always hearty narrative of our lives with big singing and bold moves.
Be there when Adonis confronts The Beast, and Famous faces off with Infamous in duels of men at work and play! Topping its earlier production of For the Boys, MEN delves deeper into the VMC’s exploration of this close-to-the-bone topic! Talk about Men. Sing about Men. Celebrate Men. Dance with Men. Fun with Men. Laugh with Men. Be about Men.

Making Spirit Bright 2015: Feast
Dec 4, 5, 10,11 – evenings @8pm, and Dec 6 & 12 – matinees @3pm, at St Paul’s Anglican Church
SIGN UP for exclusive ticket release announcements. General Admission from Nov 1, 2015.
Feast implies a large social event, with an abundance of food. A feast is a meal with a plenteous supply of food and drink for a large company. Food has been used since time immemorial as a social lubricant, bringing large groups of people together and giving them something tangible to focus on as they mingle. Many holidays throughout the year are celebrated with a feast and December has a high concentration. Christmas is famous for indulging, and even overindulging in food and drink, as is Solstice, especially Saturnalia, the ancient Roman Solstice festival. Yule was another pagan feast in December, and even Hannukkah’s celebration of light is enjoyed with the eating of oil based foods like doughnuts and latkes.
