A Christmas Carol – Holiday Fundraiser Gala 2017

Geordie Productions invites you all to usher in the holiday season with a contribution to a worthy a cause by attending its annual holiday fundraiser production of Charles Dickens’ immortal classic…

A CHRISTMAS CAROL

The story has become as essential to the holiday ritual as trimming the tree. Miserly Scrooge is haunted by a series of ghosts and taken on a journey into the past, present and future to show the inevitable consequences of her selfish ways. That’s right: her. This year, with the help of co-directors Mike Payette and Jessica Abdallah, along with a cast of 40 actors, singers and dancers, Ebenezia (played by the Honourable Pepita G. Capriolo – Justice of the Superior Court of Quebec) sees the error of her ways and comes to discover the spirit of peace, joy, and giving.

Join some of Montreal’s most celebrated legal and business leaders performing on stage in a beautiful retelling of this timeless gem – all in support of one of Canada’s leading companies for Theatre for Young Audiences – on December 8th and 9th, 2017.

Three performances including a matinee are all followed by a cocktail and catered reception which includes a silent auction and raffle prizes where patrons can bid on choice holiday gift items (including a trip to anywhere Air Canada flies)! Proceeds help Geordie continue to bring its annual 2Play School Tour, Canada’s longest running and furthest reaching annual theatre tour, to children across Eastern Canada and present its Mainstage Series to families here in Montreal each season.

Over the past few months, over forty individuals have come together to volunteer their talents in support of our mission. Their invaluable contributions, along with our audiences’ support make our gala fundraiser a highlight of the year for Geordie where we can see and celebrate the work of not only the company but our extraordinary community.” -Geordie’s Artistic Director, Mike Payette
