An apocalyptic Kitt & Jane Christmas special

SNAFU Dance Theatre is hosting a night of holiday delights at Intrepid in support of their upcoming Kitt & Jane Fringe tour

Self-proclaimed weirdos/possible geniuses, and un-refutable fan favourites behind Kitt & Jane: An Interactive Survival Guide to the Near-Post-Apocalyptic Future just won the fringe lottery and they’re throwing a holiday party Dec. 16 and 17 to make all their post-apocalyptic summer tour plans come true.

Kathleen Greenfield, Ingrid Hansen, and Rod Peter Jr. of SNAFU Dance Theatre will take their show, which opened up Phoenix Theatre’s season earlier this year, from Victoria to Montreal and back again, with dates in Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Edmonton in between.

The crew invites Victorians to eat cake, watch the show, ponder their existence and help raise some cash to buy a dirty old van to drive across the continent.

The Christmas special is set six months after 14-year-old social rejects Kitt Pedersen (Hansen) and Jane Jameson (Peter Jr.) hijack their school assembly and escape their own deaths, when the duo returns to host their school’s annual Holiday Fair. The evening features all-new Kitt & Jane songs on ukulele and glockenspiel, and special guests, as well as prizes, swag for sale, and a Christmas card craft station hosted by Mrs. Grace’s senior art class. The show starts at 8pm at Intrepid Theatre Club, 1609 Blanshard. Tickets are $15 general/$30 generous via ticketrocket.org/250-590-6291.
