Tickets are now on sale for the 2013 Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular

Tickets now on sale for popular Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular

More than 600 tickets have already sold for the 2013 Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular in Cedar and Nanaimo.

In the past six years, the Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular has become a winter tradition for many local residents.

If you are one of those people who makes this singing and dancing extravaganza part of your holiday plans each year, you’ll be pleased to know tickets are now on sale for the seventh annual production.

Opening night is Dec. 6, and the show will run through until Dec. 21. Ten performances are slated on the calendar at the Cedar Community Hall and, for the first time this year, the show is also booked at the Port Theatre in Nanaimo for three performances.

Last year’s Christmas Spectacular at the Cedar Community Hall was a hit and sold out weeks in advance, according to a press release.

This year’s production features a Queen tribute, a James Bond medley and a Sound of Music medley, Michael Bublé songs and a nostalgia tribute, as well as many more classical hits and Christmas favourites.

Cast auditions were held over three days in Vancouver in May, and more than 100 young dancers and singers came out to audition, according to show creator Katy Bowen-Roberts.

Four singers and five dancers have been cast, and they will be coming to the Island from across Canada to perform.

During the summer, Bowen-Roberts travelled to London, England, to choose more dazzling costumes for this year’s show.

“I love going to see Mr. Bahal in my favourite costume store in London,” she said. “The shop is full of sequins! In talking with Mr. Bahal, I learned that each sequin is sewn on individually to each dress. The quality is amazing!”

More than 600 tickets have already sold for this year’s Christmas Spectacular.

Call 250-754-8550 or click here to book your tickets now for either the Cedar Community Hall or the Port Theatre.
