Wow, it really is heard to believe that it is already 2016. To get things started in this first week of the New Year, our picks include some improv, going back back to high school with three girls named Heather, and getting off the couch to take in the symphony.
[dropcap]1[/dropcap]The Fictionals get the New Year started with a Pop-up Comedy Jam (Jan 5) featuring special guests from the Vancouver improv community for comedy inspired from your suggestions.
[dropcap]2[/dropcap]Our very own David C Jones directs a production of the dark musical The Heathers (Jan 7-17). Based on the 1988 cult film, this revenge comedy with music is payback for anyone who was bullied in high school.
[dropcap]3[/dropcap]Are you a couch potato? The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra has something for your viewing pleasure … if you can tear yourself away from the television long enough. As Heard on TV (Jan 8 & 9) takes you on a tour of some of the most iconic television themes. From Downton Abbey to the Game of Thrones the concert features vocalist Christina Bianco and guest conductor Steven Reineke.
