Christmas on The Coast
By Howard Dai

It’s the Christmas season for theatre in Vancouver!!!

In Arts Club theatre, the heart-warming play The Patron Saint of Stanley Park , by Vancouver’s Hiro Kanagawa, will have their closing night on Dec. 24th, at Revue stage on Granville Island. Also, the fourth season of White Christmas is playing on the Stanley Industrial Stage till Dec. 28th, you can read my recent blog of my experience watching this year’s White Christmas here.

In Pacific Theatre, Charles Dickens’ well known novel A Christmas Carol is performed by Ron Reed, who also adapted the novel into the stage version. The one man show will play until New Year’s Eve, in The Pacific Theatre main stage.

And finally, the Christmas wouldn’t be complete without the beloved pantomime in Metro Theatre. This year’s pantomime is Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, adapted and co-directed by Johnny Duncan. The pantomime features all Ali Baba’s characters; demon, fairy, and the pantomime dame. This traditional theatre production for all ages will run until Jan. 7th in Metro Theatre main stage.
