A holiday classic with a twist.

Adapted to a one-man play, Rod Beattie’s A Christmas Carol will provide festive entertainment while melting frosty hearts.

“This play is a great way to celebrate the joy of the season. Beattie maximizes the humour in this story.  As with the Wingfield Farm plays, he will have you laughing in stitches one moment and tug at your heart the next,” says Luanne Anderson, Portage’s show coordinator. “His lively adaptation of A Christmas Carol embraces the spirit of the season with a heartwarming tale of redemption and hope.”

As Royal Manitoba Theatre Company’s annual regional tour, A Christmas Carol travels to 24 communities across Manitoba and northern Ontario between November 19 and December 21. A Christmas Carol stars Beattie, the creative team includes stage manager Douglas Beattie, tour technical director Ian Kirk and tour technician James Thurmeier. Original music and musical arrangements by Stephen Woodjetts, played by Laura Burton, Donna Claire McLeod, and Andrew Chung, recorded by Jim Neil.

Rod Beattie has been performing the Wingfield Farm plays across Canada and in Portage la Prairie for over 25 years. He will be bringing A Christmas Carol to Portage’s MNP Building on Saturday, November 25, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
