Some stories need to be shared over and over again. «Bah Humbug!» is one of them. Join us December 7-16, 2017 for this annual holiday tradition, produced by SFU Woodward’s Cultural Programs in partnership with Vancouver Moving Theatre and Full Circle: First Nations Performance, in support of the DTES Heart of the City Festival.

Charles Dickens' «A Christmas Carol» comes to life in modern-day east Vancouver under the direction James Fagan Tait, Jessie Award-winning actor, playwright, and director.

Discover this imaginative all-ages production that offers a bittersweet twist on a cherished classic and celebrates the transformative power of human redemption.

This poignant production features celebrated musician and storyteller Jim Byrnes* as Ebenezer Scrooge, Renae Morriseau* as the Narrator, Kevin McNulty* as Marley, and gospel and blues singer/actor as Tom Pickett* as Bob Cratchit. These Vancouver favourites are joined on stage by a cast of professional and DTES community actors, including Stephen Lytton, winner of the Governor General's Caring Canadian Award.

Strathcona-based artist Richard Tetrault, responsible for over 40 public mural projects in the city, presents stunning large-scale projections of his Vancouver-inspired monoprints and linocuts.

Musical performances are diverse and include folk, blues, pop, gospel and industrial rock along with traditional seasonal favourites, directed by Bill Costin, featuring the Saint James Academy Youth Choir.
