FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Pine Creek Players Prepare to Perform A Christmas Carol.
Gladstone, MB, November 10, 2014—The Pine Creek Players, a community based theater group based in Gladstone, Manitoba have spent the past few months busily preparing to perform their 2014 Christmas Show, God Bless Us, Everyone!, a traditional Christmas Carol adaptation by Michael Youngs.
“Christmas! Utter rot and nonsense.” Only one man would say such a thing, and we all know him by the name of Ebenezer Scrooge. This traditional reworking of the classic Dickens tale presents some new faces alongside the familiar to awaken the spirit of the most stubborn miser known to Victorian fiction. As we all know, the lonely, penny-pinching London businessman cares little for his fellow man — until a dark visi from his deceased business partner, Jacob Marley, gives him an ominous warning. In his journey with three spirits, Scrooge revi the joys and sorrows of his past, including what might have been his only chance at love. His visions of the present show how his actions affect not only his own well-being, but also the joy and well-being of those around him. But it is the vision of the future that holds Ebenezer’s hardest lessons, revealing a terrible fate if he does not change his ways. Rediscover with us the magic of A Christmas Carol in this beautifully written adaptation, complete with a hardy dose of comedy to accompany Scrooge’s heartwarming transformation!
“2014 really has been a year of change and challenge for us”, said group President, Kelvin Bueckert. “One of the most obvious changes is that we've changed our name from Gladstone Community Theater to the Pine Creek Players in order to reflect our broadening vision for the group. Now that I think of it, God Bless Us, Everyone! fits in well with the whole theme of change and challenge, as it marks the first time we've challenged ourselves to perform a literary classic. The show also features the largest, most diverse cast we've ever had performing onstage. We've got people from Gladstone of course, but we've also got representation from Plumas to Somerset, from the Elementary School to the Seniors Center. With that said, bring the family and check out the show. It'll be fun! We're performing at the Gladstone Community Center on November 28 at 7:30 and also at 2:00 on November 29. Tickets are 10.00 each or 25.00 for a family pack. Tickets are available at Gladstone Businesses, by calling: 204-385-2850, or perhaps most convenient of all, through our website..."
