Courtenay Little Theatre is sponsoring a delightfully funny pre-Christmas show at the Stan Hagen Theatre, with all proceeds earmarked for the Comox Valley Food Bank.

It is Christmas Eve. In the deserted tree lot there is still one, lonely tree waiting to be taken home. Enter two people, both in search of a last minute acquisition to brighten up their holidays, and the hilarity ensues.

In The Christmas Tree, a one-act comedy by Canadian playwright Norm Foster, laughs come by the minute.

Directed by Sharon Pridham and performed by talented husband and wife team, Chris and Jeannine Taylor, The Christmas Tree is first class entertainment.

The Christmas Tree was performed last year with proceeds given to the food bank. It is hoped that this year’s reprise will be as successful.

“The generosity of the Comox Valley community and groups like CLT is amazing,” said Comox Valley Food Bank president Jeff Hampton. “The overall support is overwhelming at times. This valley is truly a blessed part of the world.”

In an evening not to be missed, Courtenay Little Theatre will present this wonderful one act play at the theatre on the North Island College campus on Friday, Nov. 27 at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:00 for festival seating.

Tickets are available at the door.

Entry is by donation to the Comox Valley Food Bank — suggested donation is minimum $10.
