A huge plus side of online musicals: singing along is encouraged. Join in to Gateway Theatre’s Home for the Holidays show virtually and sing along to songs from Annie, The Wizard of Oz, The Sound of Music, and more. It’s a variety show-style program that has everything from behind-the-scenes extras to drink recipes (one adult version and one kid-friendly mix).
It’s been a difficult year for the Vancouver Aquarium, but rest assured, there will still be a big guy in a red suit bringing holiday cheer to our neighbours below sea level. The virtual Scuba Claus show will challenge viewers to help save Christmas by helping Scuba Claus search for the missing key to Santa’s toy cupboard. If you tune in during the premiere, there’s prizes from the aquarium gift shop up for grabs.
Okay, this is technically a thing to do next week. Speaking of time: here’s a virtual time capsule event you don’t want to miss. For Indie Fest 2020, re:Naissance Opera commissioned 12 new digital works that will all be available in 3D (with a VR set) or 2D (with a good ol’ computer). The multidisciplinary projects are inspired both by the impact of the pandemic and the artists’ hopes for the future.
