Wet Picnic - The Lift

Wet Picnic - The Lift

Montréal’s 375th is thrilled to be able to add a touch of magic to the Just For Laughs programming with the We’re Acting Out! performances.

Going up? Step into this old-fashioned ambulatory elevator for a truly uplifting experience. Guaranteed to crack you up, whether you’re inside the walls or watching on.

The Lift is a theatrical experience that envelops its audience, welcoming them into a world of captured moments, giving them a surreal experience that they won't forget. An elegant elevator (on wheels) arrives accompanied by three bellhops. The audience are invited to step inside and choose a moment by selecting one of nine different ‘floor’ buttons. Each button triggers a particular scene or event which is performed for both the audience member in The Lift and those on the outside looking in. Who knew the elevator could be such a ride?
