The Annual Christmas Play

... is not only fun to watch, but also to produce.

The club grew out of the success of the annual Christmas play, which began in 2008 at the MFPL ("Cinderella") and has since gone on to become the centrepiece of the Christmas time at the VBC. These Christmas plays are in the tradition of British pantomime, and offer the students and Postdocs to turn the tables on their supervisors for one night. The scripts feature a mix of song, dance, satire, and slapstick humour and are written by the cast, based on traditional children's stories.
