Feel free – get into the Spirit of Christ­mas

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - JELLYBEAN JOURNAL - JBJ RE­PORTER

IF YOU WANT to feel re­ally Christ­massy next week, join Alvon Col­li­son and 50 other per­form­ers in their na­tiv­ity play The Spirit of Christ­mas at the city hall next week.

The show is free, be­cause Alvon be­lieves that we all need to get to­gether and strengthen our bonds as Capetonians.

The per­form­ers, who in­clude chil­dren and adults, have been prac­tis­ing for many weeks to make this a spe­cial oc­ca­sion.

Alvon will be the nar­ra­tor, and Colleen Meje will play Mary. Faried Swartz is Joseph, and other guest per­form­ers will be wise men, shep­herds, vil­lagers, em­per­ors, lambs and even rats.

Alvon says: “So bring your whole fam­ily in­clud­ing your neigh­bours, your friend’s sec­ond cousins, your aun­tie’s boyfriend’s mother, and her sis­ter, and come and en­joy The Spirit of Christ­mas. There are free tick­ets for ev­ery­one.”

Alvon said a big thank-you to the city of Cape Town for al­low­ing him to use the City Hall free. The shows will take place at 6.30pm on Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day (De­cem­ber 22 and 23).
