The dark comedy Ravenscroft has just closed and Many Hats Theatre Company has switched gears to prepare for the final show of their fourth season.
This time, it’s a lighter-hearted show, Christmas Belles, by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten.
It’s Christmas time in Fayro, Tex. and the Futrelle sisters, Frankie, Twink and Honey Raye are busy planning the annual Christmas pageant at the Tabernacle of the Lamb.
Problem is, the entire world seems to be conspiring against them as their best planning efforts spin riotously out of control.
Their special guest has bagged on them, Santa is passing a kidney stone, and one of the shepherds insists on pulling his little red wagon on stage.
Add in the fact that most of the cast have been struck by food poisoning and it doesn’t look like even Elvis himself could save the day.
It’s a Christmas pageant you’ll never forget, according to Many Hats organizers.
Christmas Belles opens on the Cannery Stage in the Cannery Trade Centre on Nov. 10 and runs until Dec. 3.
Shows are Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $19, $17 for students and seniors, and at the Wine Country Visitor’s Centre or by phone at 250-493-4055.
