Kaatza Players announce Christmas play

Kaatza Lakeside Players Society is thrilled to announce new take on the Dickens old favourite.

Kaatza Lakeside Players Society is thrilled to announce our Fall production of ‘A Dickens Christmas Carol: A Traveling Travesty in Two Tumultuous Acts’ by Mark Landon Smith and directed by Barbara Simkins.

‘From the bonny shores of England comes the Styckes-Upon-Thump Repertory Theatre Company, a stuffy old traveling troupe embarking on their fifteenth annual farewell tour of the Dickens’ tale. As with all theatre companies, the drama backstage often exceeds that which the audience sees. When the fading diva throws a hissy fit and locks herself in her dressing room, mayhem ensues as this professional company scrambles to keep the show going and everything that could possibly go wrong does, to hilarious, ridiculous results!’

The play runs at the Centennial Hall in Lake Cowichan from November 18th through November 23, with five evening performances and two matinées on the weekend. Tickets are available at Footwear Centre, 42 South Shore Road, and are priced at $18 for adults, $15 for seniors/members/youth, and $5 for under 12. Doors open at 12:45 and the curtain goes up at 1:30 pm for the matinées and 6:15 and 7 pm for the evening shows.
