Charles Dickens’ tale A Christmas Carol is a seasonal classic and Rivercity Players will present a dramatic reading of the story.

Catch Rivercity Players’ dramatic reading of the ever-popular Christmas Carol

Rivercity Players would like to invite you to attend their annual Christmas production.

This year’s show, A Rivercity Christmas, will include a dramatic reading of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol to get you into the holiday spirit. Witness Ebenezer Scrooge’s redemption as he encounters the Spirit Guides on his path to discover the true meaning of Christmas. Sit back and relax as you recapture the joy of having a story read to you.

The evening also features musical numbers by the adult class from RainCoast School of Musical Theatre. This group of both seasoned and new performers will be singing and dancing classic show tunes. There will also be additional readings and musical performances.

Heather Gordon Murphy is directing the musical theatre component of the evening, and is enjoying working with the performers, and the collaboration between different styles of theatre – at production level and performance level.

“This will be a fun and entertaining evening of music and story,” she said. “It will be a great addition to your holiday season!”

The family-friendly event will be held at the Rivercity Stage, 1080 Hemlock Street, on Sunday, Dec. 16 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Admission is $5 at the door, and donations to the Campbell River Food Bank are appreciated.
