The Sicamous Amateur Drama Club is rehearsing for a special presentation of Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, to be presented Dec. 6 to 9.
This time the story will be read by the actors in full costumes. There will be no sets on stage, but the actors will help you experience the old story of Scrooge’s rehabilitation, from miser to philanthropist. The story still holds up after all these years. I guess human nature does not change that much, and from time to time, we all feel we can do better towards others.
The drama club is in need of a young, very young person to play Tiny Tim. If you know of a small, five-years old and up, male or female, who would like to be on stage and only say two lines and act with the other Cratchit family members, please contact me. Not many rehearsals will be necessary but we cannot do the story without this little person.
The Red Barn Arts Centre will have the 50-foot mural and other large murals up, and the audience will be spoiled with hot chocolate and marshmallows and cookies at no extra charge. The charge is still only $5.
