British comedy duo offers Christmas cheer

O Christmas Tea, on stage Dec. 11 and 12 at 7:30 p.m. at Sid Williams Theatre

James & Jamesy put a Christmas spin on their play

For their first-ever performance in Courtenay, and just in time for the holidays, the multi-award winning comedians James & Jamesy present the inventive and outrageously funny theatrical adventure O Christmas Tea, on stage Dec. 11 and 12 at 7:30 p.m. at Sid Williams Theatre. Transcending physical comedy and redefining immersive theatre, the 13-time “Best-of-Fest” comedy award-winners will sweep spectators out to sea in a jolly aquatic escapade brimming with action, ingenuity, and a dash of Christmas cheer.

“All too often, we look enviously upon a child’s imagination and Christmas fervor as something lost to us as adults,” explains Jamesy, the quirky, meticulous, and rather obsessive half of the uproarious British duo. “O Christmas Tea not only celebrates the holiday season, but reawakens the child that lives inside us by inspiring a playful and encouraging performance arena. The festive adaptation of our award-winning performance High Tea will undoubtedly surprise audiences by how eager they are to jump into costume and join in on the fun with James and I. And don’t forget your teacup. Tea will be served!”

When a catastrophe strikes at James & Jamesy’s Christmas tea party, flooding the world in tea, these caffeine connoisseurs must leap into action, finding innovative and hilarious solutions to keep them afloat.

Drawing on well-known maritime adventures including Noah’s Ark, Jaws, and Titanic, audience members will ease into their roles as pivotal characters in the work, playing along with the unforgettable, witty antics of James & Jamesy.
