Rose­bud Theatre presents A Christ­mas Carol

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - CLASSIFIED­S - Contribute­d

Rose­bud Theatre is thrilled to an­nounce that we will be bring­ing live theatre back to Al­berta, re-open­ing on Novem­ber 6 with a safely dis­tanced Charles Dick­ens’ clas­sic, A Christ­mas Carol.

“We’ve been busy work­ing through the de­tails of how to safely of­fer a Christ­mas pro­duc­tion,” said Mor­ris Ert­man, Artis­tic Di­rec­tor.

"Last Christ­mas I was in Van­cou­ver di­rect­ing Ron

Reed's adap­tion of A Christ­mas Carol, and I re­al­ized that this vis­ually stun­ning one per­son show would be the per­fect event to ease us safely into this new phase

– where we can once again come to­gether in com­mu­nity, al­beit with safety and so­cial dis­tanc­ing in place."

To date Rose­bud Theatre is the only com­pany in Al­berta of­fer­ing A Christ­mas

Carol live on stage. For all of the fam­i­lies who have made this clas­sic an an­nual tra­di­tion at Theatre Cal­gary or the Ci­tadel Theatre, we in­vite you to con­tinue your tra­di­tion by join­ing us to ex­pe­ri­ence the Christ­mas magic of Rose­bud.

“So­cial dis­tanc­ing has been en­sured by mod­i­fy­ing the num­ber of au­di­ence seats per show from 230 to 62, and chang­ing our din­ing room ex­pe­ri­ence from buf­fet style to plate ser­vice. AHS guide­lines will be ex­ceeded and sur­faces will be thor­oughly cleaned and dis­in­fected fol­low­ing each per­for­mance”, com­mented Heather Lit­tle, Mar­ket­ing Man­ager.

It’s Christ­mas Eve in Vic­to­rian Eng­land. A street-wise sto­ry­teller lights a can­dle and with a twin­kle in his eye, in­vites us into the story of a miser who was meant to be a bene­fac­tor. His name is Ebenezer Scrooge, and on this very night he will be vis­ited by three spir­its . . . Us­ing Dick­ens’ richly de­scrip­tive lan­guage, Nathan Sch­midt imag­ines this well-known tale of redemp­tion in a way that reawak­ens the time-hon­oured Christ­mas spirit it em­bod­ies.
