Just in time for Christmas, DuffleBag Theatre returns to Oliver Friday December 13 with A Christmas Carol. DuffleBag creates theatrical magic by inviting audience members on stage as stars of the show in this timeless classic.
Penny-pinching miser Ebenezer Scrooge is well known across Victorian London for being far more interested in making money than friends. Above all else, he hates Christmas time and its spirit of giving. On one particular Christmas Eve, several spirits give Ebenezer the surprise of his life, as they whisk him off on a magical journey through past, present and future, to show him the true meaning of the season. From Fezziwig to Tiny Tim, all the favorites are included in DuffleBag Theatre’s exuberant version of the Charles Dickens Yuletide classic!
A Christmas Carol is part of Venables Theatre’s Family ShowTime Series which includes Samajam – Rythmo 2 on Friday January 24th, Will’s Jams, (from CBC Kids) on Friday February 21st and Uzume Taiko on Saturday April 18th.
Family ShowTime is presented by Venables Theatre with the support of the Community Presenters Assistance program (of the BC Arts Council and BC Touring Council) as well as The Coast Oliver Hotel.
A Christmas Carol will delight our audience members on Friday December 13th at 6:30 at Venables Theatre, (6100 Gala Street in Oliver). Tickets are $12.50 or purchase tickets to all four shows for only $40! For more information visit www.venablestheatre.ca
