“There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.”
City Stage New West and the City of New Westminster clearly know what Charles Dickens was talking about.
The two organizations are partnering on an event that will allow the whole community to take part in a Christmas classic.
An audience-participation reading of A Christmas Carol is the next offering in the Sips n’ Scripts program at Anvil Centre, coming up on Wednesday, Dec. 12.
The all-ages event will star veteran actor-musician Dave Clothier as Ebenezer Scrooge. Audience members can choose to read a role, throw a snowball and join the Christmas sing-along – or just sit back and enjoy the fun.
A cash bar will be open, with seasonal drinks available.
It’s all free, and it’s all family-friendly, happening from 7 to 9 p.m. on the first floor at Anvil Centre, 777 Columbia St. You don’t need to buy a ticket or register ahead, but you can call 604-527-4640 for more information.
