Twist on a Christmas classic 

To help get Whistler residents into the spirit this holiday season, the Whistler Arts Council is presenting a unique take on the timeless classic, A Christmas Carol, as part of their annual Performance Series.

The beloved Christmas story is coming to Millennium Place on Wednesday, Dec. 15 and Thursday, Dec. 16 at 8 p.m.

This musical adaptation of Charles Dickens' immortal classic tale is produced by John Armstrong, featuring a talented cast of Juno-nominated folk musicians who have created a collection of songs written from the perspectives of their characters. The performance still tells the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge as he encounters the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future, and learns the true meaning of the holiday season.

Since its inception in 1996, The Christmas Carol Project has seen more than 60 performances, three tours, a CD and an award-winning television special.  The cast includes Bill Bourne, Kevin Cook, Maria Dunn, Tom Roschkov, Terry Morrison, Al Brant, Dale Ladouceur, Bill Hobson and narrator Dave Clarke.

Tickets to The Christmas Carol Project are $28 for adults, $24 for students and seniors, $22 for Whistler Arts Council Members and $12 for Children under 16 years of age. Tickets are available at Millennium Place phone 604-935-8410 or visit artswhistler.com for more information.
