Calling all Scrooges

Madison Erhardt

If you know a scrooge or two then it's time to take them to A Kelowna Christmas Carol.

The performance incorporates beloved elements of Dickens's original story; Scrooge, The Cratchits and an adorable Tiny Tim, and places them in Kelowna at a pivotal period of the city's history.

"Our play looks at the character of Scrooge in a very unique way. I have incorporated stories of Kelowna historical figures such as one of the city's first doctors Dr. Benjamin Boyce and his wife, Mary; Countess Bubna, the exotic first owner of The Eldorado, then called The Eldorado Arms Hotel," said Artistic Director Bonnie Gratz,.

Another interesting element of the production is that community members have been invited to be a part of the play as hosts. Individuals involved include: Dom Rampone, Mayor, Colin Basran, Councillor, Maxine DeHart, Marianna DeHart, and Linda Digby of Kelowna Museums.

There are only a few tickets left, head to  www.rotarycentreforthearts.com or The Rotary Centre For The Arts Box Office for details. 

A Kelowna Christmas Carol runs Dec.13-21 at The Rotary Centre For The Arts. Public shows are at 7 p.m. on Dec.14, 15, 16 and 21 with a matinee on Dec.17 at 2  p.m.
