Katy Mayert has been working since January on the creation of another new show to bring to the audiences of the Comox Valley.

“Choosing the music is a treat,” says Mayert, the creator, producer and director of  Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular 2014. “What could be more wonderful than listening to hundreds of pieces of music of different genres, styles and eras? I am always amazed by how much music there is to choose from.”

From CCR to Sir Elton

This year’s show promises to be as exciting as ever. From dancing to a set of dazzling disco hits, to jamming with the Creedence Clearwater Revival band, to a little country dancing with Dolly Parton.

The sequins will be out again for a beautiful medley of Elton John songs and the energy will be high as highlights from West Side Story including America are danced on the stage. The Grinch will be seen stirring up the Christmas magic while the Toy Soldiers will tap their way into the story.

Always something new

The format is similar but the music is always different and that’s what brings audiences back year after year. As the theatre begins to buzz, the excitement builds. What will the costumes be like this year? Will we see new talent or will we see returning cast members? What Elton John hits did they choose? What’s the opening Broadway number this year? So many questions are buzzing around the room. The lights dim, the voices become whispers and the band begins to play. It’s time to be whisked away to another world. A world of live dance and music, of Christmas cheer and colourful costumes, and of course laughter and tears. There’s something in it for everyone so you don’t want to miss out!

Merville baritone

Lindsay Sterk (Pantuso Dance), Katy and James Mark hosted two full days of voice and dance auditions in June in Vancouver this year. They were overwhelmed by the talent they saw.

They are excited to announce that Alexander Nicoll, who grew up in Merville, will be seen in the baritone role. Alex is a triple-threat performer. He graduated from Capilano Musical theatre and has since been seen performing around the province and most recently in the Arts Club’s Spamalot.
