St David of Wales Anglican Church in East Vancouver and Tillicum Community School Annex are teaming up to bring back a Christmas holiday favorite. Scrooge, a dramatic reading of Charles Dickens' Christmas Carol, will be performed in the church on December 20-22. For the third year in a row, proceeds from this performance by a group of talented actors will benefit programming at Tillicum Community Annex.
St David's is one of the oldest buildings in East Vancouver's Hastings-Sunrise neighbourhood. Its creaking floors, high ceiling and gothic-shaped windows provide a perfect setting for Ebenezer Scrooge's ghostly encounters with the spirits of Christmas.
Tickets for this community fund-raiser, limited to 120 each night. There will be home baked goods for sale before and after the performance to help with your seasonal celebrations or to enjoy during the play. The proceeds from the sale of these goodies will also go towards the fundraising efforts of Tillicum Annex.
Tickets can be purchased at: Tillicum Annex, 2450 Cambridge Street, 604-713-4716 or at Hastings School, 2625 Franklin Street, 604-713-5268. For more information, call St David's at 604-253-8524.
