The Grinch is conducting a therapy circle where guests are encouraged to vent about how crappy Christmas is. Our nasty green friend will encourage and coach his breakroom participants until they are as expressive and extreme as they can “tastefully” be. Then it is time for the Christmas Rant Contest guests will volunteer to do their best Rick Mercer style rant about the holiday season.
Peppermint the Christmas Elf will thank arriving guests for choosing to sign up for her Christmas Drawing Class and give them their assignment of the day. Guests are divided into 2 teams and choose one “artist” for each. Peppermint then DMs an item to be drawn to only the artist. Through Zoom’s share screen whiteboard the artist draws the item as guests shout out their answers.
Ever since Santa replaced Rudolf with GPS, our favourite reindeer has been working as a game show host in the North Pole. Tonight he will play a fast-paced game of Family Feud with his breakout room guests. Rudolf will divide the participants into teams or play it as a free-for-all, challenging guests to guess the top answers to real Family Feud survey questions about the Christmas season.
The Ghost of Christmas Past takes Scrooge back to the terrible mistakes he has made in his life. He will ask guests for suggestions on what Scrooge should have done differently. Scrooge and Ghost then act out the guest’s suggestions to hilarious conclusions. Guests will also share their own mistakes then our Improv duo will perform short vignettes. Lots of audience interaction and super fun.
Breakout rooms can also be dedicated to simple social mixing. Guests will enter and get to spend time chatting with a random selection of event guests, make new connections or catch up with a work colleague. Extra ice-breaking and mixing prompts are provided by our Chat Room hosts and hostesses to keep the conversation moving.
Guests looking for a more relaxed Chat Room will enjoy the laid-back vibe of the Conversation Café.
