Last call for Yellowpoint Christmas show

Tickets at yellowpointchristmasspectacular.ca or by phone at 250-754-8550

There’s still time to get in on the Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular, with three shows remaining at the Port Theatre in Nanaimo Dec. 18, 19 and 20th.

“The Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular is a celebration of Christmas as well as an extravaganza of music and dance, lights and decorations, laughter and tears,” says the promotional intro at yellowpointchristmasspectacular.ca.

The show is in its ninth year and is becoming a Christmas tradition on Central Vancouver Island.

Included in the entertainment line up are: hits by the Beach Boys, a Rock of Ages medley, Bobby Darrin songs, songs from Grease and Moulin Rouge, a Canadiana set as well as many more classical hits and Christmas favourites.

A cast of 14 professional singers, dancers and musicians began an intensive two-week rehearsal period in preparation for opening night Dec. 8.

Since then they have performed at two of three Vancouver Island venues: Cedar Community Hall and the Sid Williams Theatre in Courtenay.

By the time they wrap up on Dec. 20 at the Port Theatre in Nanaimo, they will have put on the show for appreciative audiences totaling over 7,000.
