A Magical Yule Ball: An Immersive Theatre Experience
December 19 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:00 pm, repeating until December 21, 2019
This event is part of New West WinterFest 2019!
Geekenders returns this holiday season with their most magical immersive theatre experience! After a sold out run in 2018 at The Biltmore Cabaret, Geekenders is bringing “A Magical Yule Ball” to the historical Columbia Theatre in New Westminster. Based on the famous Holiday Ball of the Wizarding World, “A Magical Yule Ball” is the ultimate event of the season for magic fans everywhere, and is on it’s way to becoming one of the premier events of the holiday season for Geeks and Nerds across greater Vancouver…
Students will encounter the school’s residents, characters who interact with their fellow students differently based on the house button they will proudly wear throughout the evening — a whimsical group of familiar faces. A spectacled boy with messy hair, along with the cleverest witch of her age, and a redhead eating a pumpkin pastie might cheerfully invite you to a club meeting, or a brooding boy with slicked-back blonde hair might ask you to help him out with his duties on the Inquisitorial Squad.
Visitors to the Yule Ball are invited to explore the ballroom, side rooms, and even bathrooms (is that a ghost giggling away in there?), dance to the music of The Weird Sisters, follow twenty-two performers into one-on-one encounters or hidden scenes, help themselves to delicious English snacks (complete with a chocolate fountain), drink Butterbeer and Firewhiskey at the bar, and trade their regular life for a night of magic!
