Missing Santa – A Virtual Event This December

9 Dec

It’s days before Christmas and Santa has disappeared! Detective Bill Jingle is on the case and he searches for help from Santa’s close friends, a talented group of interesting people. Most have not heard from the jolly fella, but a few have clues. Can you solve the riddle of where Santa is before the detective and the elves do?

With magic, music and merriment a partly animated virtual adventure is perfect entertainment for the whole family. No need to worry about COVID restrictions, as all the fun can be had safely from your living room. And if Santa is found, you have the opportunity to purchase a video phone chat with him. HoHoHo. Also, added bonus is that you can watch and re-watch the show as many times as you want between December 18th and December 23rd.

Missing Santa is brought to you by Labmations and David C. Jones Production and is also a fundraiser for the West Coast Kids Cancer Foundation. The foundation creates joy and community for families tackling childhood cancer and blood disorders in British Columbia. They provide daily, practical support for all families going through this journey.

Missing Santa will be available online December 16th through to December 20th. Video calls with Santa are available December 14th through to December 20th. There is no limit to how many people can watch the show together, so you only need to buy one ticket per household. To purchase your ticket, visit Labmations.

GrahamClark24hoursLove stand up?! Well we’ve got the ticket for you. This Friday at 8:00 pm local and veteran comedian, Graham Clark, kicks off 24 Hours Of Stand Up comedy.  Graham is bringing with him a talented team of comedians that he’ll keep at the ready in the front row to help him write jokes and ensure there isn’t much lag time to keep the jokes rolling all night long and into the next day.   Why do 24 hours of comedy?  Graham has been inspired by another comedian, Pat Thornton, raising funds in Toronto for the Stephen Lewis Foundation.  This will be the first time an event like this will take place in Vancouver.  If you are unfamiliar with the Stephen Lewis Foundation, it assists community-level organizations in Africa by providing care and support to women, orphaned children, grandmothers and people living with HIV & AIDS. The Stephen Lewis Foundation has funded over 1,800 initiatives and partnered with more than 325 community-based organizations in 15 African countries hardest hit by the AIDS pandemic.   They would love your support. You are invited to come by and watch some stand up.  For that option, tickets can be purchased online or at the door $10, $20, $30 or $50.  If you can’t make it in person, you can still support the cause by heading over to their fundraising page at Stand Up for 24 Hours!
