Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol is beautifully retold in this contemporary adaptation cleverly set within Vancouver's Downtown East Side whilst ever echoing the harsh social and economic themes of a Dickensian London.
Specifically, our Scrooge preys upon his desperate clientele as a merciless pawnshop operator/hotel landlord - displacing people-for -profit through heartless reno-victions.
This poignant yet ever humourous musical is directed by Michael Boucher featuring a stellar cast lead by Jim Byrnes, Margo Kane, Tom Pickett, Kevin McNulty and Sam Bob. St James Academy choir and Governor General community award recipient, Stephen Lytton, add their rich voices to this unique adptation. This year we welcome new cast members and a new musician.
Renowned Vancouver muralist Richard Tetrault's iconic images of back alleys, ravens and Vancouver's port side provide compelling backdrops to this production.
Blues, gospel and industrial rock genres are interspersed with traditional seasonal favourites lead by the musical director Bill Costin.
December 5-21, 2019 SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, 149 West Hastings
