Yellowpoint Christmas comes to McPherson

The Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular is coming to the McPherson Theatre for the first time in its 10-year history.

The Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular is coming to the McPherson Theatre for the first time in its 10-year history.

The show is described as fast moving and colourful with dazzling costumes, lights and sequins that take audiences on an emotional journey through a wide variety of music and dance with touching readings and stories interwoven in between.

This year’s singing and dancing extravaganza will include new Broadway hits, classical songs and Christmas favourites, along with musical tributes to Johnny Cash, June Carter, Ella Fitzgerald and the Village People.

As part of the 10th anniversary show, Elvis will once again grace the stage and the sights and sounds of Abba will be back by popular demand. There will also be songs from the old classic White Christmas as well as an arrangement of Leonard Cohen’s Halleluiah.

In the weeks leading up to the show, the cast of 14 professional singers, dancers and musicians started intense rehearsals. This year, more than 100 talented singers auditioned for the show, overwhelming the creative team.

“It takes a year of planning to bring this show to the stage, but it’s worth every minute,” said Katy Bowen-Roberts, producer, director and creator of the show.

“Audiences leave buzzing night after night and when I hear them cry, ‘My Christmas has officially begun’ I know that we have succeeded.”

The Yellowbird Christmas Spectacular takes place Dec. 10 and 11 with two matinee performances and one evening performance on Dec. 10. Tickets are on sale at the McPherson Theatre box office.
