It's Christmas Eve and a young newspaper reporter on the brink of being fired has been assigned a last-chance story about a typical family Christmas - his family's Christmas.

He goes home to his recently widowed mother, his crazy uncle, his eccentric grandmother, his battling siblings and their neurotic spouses, who provide no shortage of material.  One by one, we learn each family member's secrets, problems and dysfunctions, and when they all learn that he's writing an article with some very personal family information, the fruitcake his the fan!

The question is, will the magic of Christmas bring this family back together?

Recommended for audiences ages 14+

Halifax-born, Toronto-based songwriter Ria Mae hits the road with her Stars Tour beginning November 14 in Vancouver, BC in support of her highly anticipated Stars EP and new single, “Too Close”, featuring Dan Talevski and coming out in October. 

The EP Stars serves as a follow-up to the JUNO Award nominated pop album, My Love. The EP’s first single “Bend,” released summer 2017, became an instant hit skyrocketing to the top of the CBC Radio 2 charts for four weeks.  Shortly thereafter it catapulted up the Canadian radio charts reaching Top 5 at Hot AC, Top 10 at AC, and Top 15 CHR radio.  Together with its Platinum-certified debut “Bend” and follow-up “Red Light,” My Love garnered over 12 million combined worldwide streams. The EP was produced by Adam King at Canterbury Studios in Toronto, mixed by Grammy® Award-winning Engineer Joe Visciano, and mastered by Stuart Hawkes. It features several notable collaborators including: Tegan Quin (Tegan & Sara), Joel Stouffer, Serena Ryder, and Dylan Guthro (Port Cities). 

Ria’s self-titled major label debut, released in 2016, features the Platinum-selling “Clothes Off” and the anthemic “Ooh Love” (certified Gold). The critically acclaimed album garnered multiple award nominations including ‘Single of the Year’ at the 2016 JUNO Awards and ‘Best New Canadian Artist’ at the iHeart Radio MMVAs.

Ria has toured Europe with Tegan & Sara, North America with Dido, and Canada with Scott Helman.  She has performed with Elle King, Xavier Rudd, Shawn Hook, Family of the Year, Francesco Yates, Coleman Hell and more. To date, Ria’s music has been streamed over 60 million times worldwide.
