Leila is back in the best holiday event of the year!

Green Light Arts presents the award-winning, lovable, and effervescent artist LEILA in her hit show about the adventures of her first Christmas in Canada.

Leila has recently immigrated to Canada from Tehran, Iran and has her first job: as a customer service rep in a call centre during the holiday season. This inspires her to learn what this “Christmas-thing Canadians seem to love so much” is all about. To impress a co-worker she promises to throw the ultimate Christmas party – things get out of hand - and hilarity ensues.

There will be dancing, singing, tree decorating, and sugar cookies... No matter who you are, where you come from, or what you celebrate Leila will capture your heart and show you how we are all much more similar to each other than we are different. A Very Leila Christmas will get you in the Holiday spirit, make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and absolutely leave you in stitches.
