CBC, Our place present Dickens’ A Christmas Carol

The presentation includes music from the Open Door Choir @ Our Place and the Victoria Good News Choir.

It’s the Christmas message full of hope, redemption and … ghosts.

Featuring the vocal talents of CBC Radio personalities, including Shelagh Rogers, Gregor Craigie, Jo-Ann Roberts and Arthur Black, CBC and Our Place present a dramatic reading of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol tonight (Dec. 10) at Alix Goolden Hall.

The presentation includes music from the Open Door Choir @ Our Place and the Victoria Good News Choir.

“Just like Scrooge, one can’t help but be moved and transformed by the true meaning of Christmas as captured in this classic tale,” said Don Evans, executive director of Our Place. “And watching favourite CBC personalities bring it to life is truly magical.”

Tickets to the event can be purchased online at ourplacesociety.com, as well as in person at Our Place Society, 919 Pandora Ave., and Lyle’s Place, 770 Yates St. Tickets are $15 for adults, and $5 for children.

Our Place is a community centre serving Greater Victoria’s most vulnerable: working poor, impoverished elderly, individuals with mental health and physical challenges, and the homeless.
