After nearly two years away from the stage, British comedy duo James and Jamesy are back with O Christmas Tea.
The tour arrives in Kamloops on Friday, Dec. 17, for at 7:30 p.m. show at Sagebrush Theatre.
The creators say O Christmas Tea is a rollicking holiday spectacular ideal for fans of Monty Python, Mr. Bean and Dr. Seuss.
“After 20 months away from the stage, we are beside ourselves — both literally and metaphorically — to be reunited with our audiences, many of whom have become like extended family over the festive season, and to again feel the buzz that only the magic of live theatre can bring,” said Aaron Malkin (James), the taller, less-hirsute half of the award-winning duo.
Alastair Knowles (Jamesy), the eccentric half of the pair, said he is excited to once again be able to bring friends and family together.
“There are definitely going to be some surprises for our regular audiences, with whom we’re thrilled to reconnect this season,” Knowles said.
O Christmas Tea is rich with wordplay, comic physicality and cleverly crafted interactive elements reminiscent of classic British pantomimes.
During the action-packed production, a Christmas wish for tea is surprisingly fulfilled in titanic proportions. As the world floods with tea, the duo must find innovative and hilarious solutions to keep them afloat as they try to make their way back home.
