What do 3 Superior Court judges, a bunch of lawyers, businesspersons and Georges Laraque have in common? It’s not what you think. They’ve all signed on to perform in this year’s Geordie holiday fundraiser production of…

A Christmas Carol

By Charles Dickens | Adapted by Alexandria Haber | Directed by Dean Patrick Fleming
December 11th and 12th at the D.B. Clarke Theatre

The story has become as essential to the holiday ritual as trimming the tree. Miserly M. Scrooge is haunted by a series of ghosts who take him on a journey into his past, present and future to show him the inevitable consequences of his selfish ways. But with the help of director Dean Patrick Fleming and a cast of 40+ actors, singers and dancers, Ebenezer sees the error of his ways and comes to discover the spirit of Christmas.

Justice Brian Riordan, now infamous for his historic ruling against tobacco giants in the amount of 15 billion dollars, returns to play Scrooge! Along with local media personality Tracey McKee and former Montreal Canadiens Georges Laraque, the play features members of the local legal and corporate communities who’ve all generously donated their time to put on this seasonal family treat to help raise funds for Geordie.

Three performances including a matinee are all followed by cocktail and food receptions including silent auctions where patrons can bid on such choice holiday gift items as autographed hockey jerseys, travel and restaurant gift certificates, flat screen TV, sports tickets, and more! Proceeds help Geordie continue to bring its annual 2Play School Tour, Canada’s biggest annual theatre tour, to children across Eastern Canada and present its Mainstage Series to families here in Montreal each season.

Geordie Productions is Quebec’s English-language theatre company for kids. It celebrates its 35th anniversary this season! To date, the company has travelled nearly a million kilometres and performed for over 2 million audience members.
