A Christmas Carol will be the second play in this season’s 4 Play Drama Series at Keyano Theatre, with show dates in November. The Charles Dickens classic tale will be re-told by community volunteers in the adaptation script written by last season’s Les Misérables Director Claude A. Giroux and directed by newcomer Jacqueline Russell from Calgary.

The production team is looking for a mixed cast of people ages five to 50-and-over to play principal and ensemble roles. Everyone is welcome to audition, no prior experience is necessary.
