On Sunday, November 13th we welcomed Dufflebag Theatre to the Northern Lights Pavilion in Haliburton for their production of “A Christmas Carol“.
This 1 hour production featured one of our own audience members, Jacob D, as the main character Ebenezer Scrooge much to the delight to his classmates,friends and family in the audience who turned out to watch the show. (As you can imagine, in a small town like this most of us know Jacob in some way). This show requested audience participation in the form of verbal response to the performer’s cues and invited several additional members from the audience onstage for their shot at fame.
With age appropriate and updated quips mixed into the show from the performers including a snippet of Rebecca Black’s infamous song, “Friday” as well as the very understandable confusion between Scrooge’s business partner Jacob Marley and the reggae man, Bob Marley this was a show that had the kids and adults alike laughing.
A wonderful time was had by all and the audience rang out with laughter at the antics that this show brought to Haliburton. What a great way to kick off our 26th season.
