Bah! Humbug! returns for a seventh year featuring Juno-Award Winning musician Jim Byrnes as Ebenezer Scrooge. Don't miss this festive, seasonal Woodward's tradition! IMG_0653_smcropSFU Woodward's Cultural Programs and Vancouver Moving Theatre in partnership with Full Circle: First Nations Performance are thrilled to present Bah! Humbug!, our annual evergreen favourite adaption of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, with Jim Byrnes as Ebenezer Scrooge! Described by the Vancouver Courier as "A must see!", Bah! Humbug! returns for 8 performances Dec 8-10 and 15-17, 2016 and is a great way to get into the spirit of the season. Each show features a turkey draw and an audience sing-along of holiday favourites before show start. Bah! Humbug! is reconceived as a tale where sushi-loving Scrooge owns a pawn shop on Hastings Street and checks his iPhone to time Bob Cratchet’s late arrival to work. The Spirits of this classic tale are re-imagined as emerging from Coast Salish territory buried under the sidewalks of today’s Downtown Eastside. This imaginative all-ages production offers a bittersweet twist on a cherished classic that celebrates the transformative power of human redemption. Read more...
