Together again in the theatre! The holiday tradition brimming with joy and laughter returns to Olympia.

O Christmas Tea: A British Comedy

OLYMPIA, WA – Oct 12 2021: The holiday season is fast approaching and, after nearly two full years away from the stage, beloved British comedy duo James and Jamesy are back with O Christmas Tea. Whether it’s with friends, family, loved ones, or on your own, an evening spent in the theatre with James and Jamesy is sure to be an evening you will never forget.

The shows will be held:

●        Friday, November 26th at 7.30pm, Washington Center for the Performing Arts

O Christmas Tea is a rolicking holiday spectacular that’s ideal for fans of Monty Python, Mr. Bean, and Dr. Seuss. James and Jamesy have delighted audiences for decades with their unique take on traditional British comedy and they’re excited to make their eagerly awaited return to the stages.

“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,” explained Aaron Malkin (James), the taller, less-hirsute half of the award-winning duo.

The time away, due to pandemic restrictions on live entertainment, has reinforced not only the passion the duo has for its shows, but also the importance that humour plays in our lives.

“We are so excited to once again be able to bring friends and family together, especially now – more than ever – we are reminded to dream big, embrace imagination, and celebrate a childlike excitement for merriment,” added Alastair Knowles (Jamesy), the eccentric half of the award-winning duo. “There are definitely going to be some surprises for our regular audiences, with whom we’re thrilled to reconnect this season.”

O Christmas Tea is rich with wordplay, comic physicality, and cleverly crafted interactive elements reminiscent of classic British pantomimes. However, it is James & Jamesy’s boundless imagination and endearing chemistry that creates the extraordinary magic of this unique festive experience.

During the action-packed production, a Christmas wish for tea is surprisingly fulfilled in titanic proportions. As the world floods with tea, our duo must find innovative and hilarious solutions to keep them afloat as they try to make their way back home.

Already a festive tradition for thousands of theatre-goers, this year the O Christmas Tea tour is brighter than ever, with dates across the Pacific Northwest including four dates across Washington State – Olympia, Edmonds, Seattle, and Bellingham – offering both long-time fans and those new to the James and Jamesy experience a chance to enjoy the festive production.

Grab your teacups!
