Yellowpoint celebrates 11 years of holiday performances

Producer, director and creator Katy Bowen-Roberts, is thrilled to be bringing the Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular back to her hometown again this year with three performances at the Sid Williams Theatre Dec. 5 (7 p.m.) and 6 (3 p.m. and 7 p.m.).

She and her team have completed writing their 11th annual production. This year’s singing and dancing extravaganza includes musical tributes to The Beatles, Nina Simone, Rod Stewart and Lady Gaga.

There are also Broadway showstoppers from Mary Poppins, hit tunes from Top Gun, a country medley of Shania Twain and Garth Brooks tunes as well as many more classical hits and Christmas favorites including the old classic White Christmas.

The creative team which includes Bowen-Roberts and Lindsay Sterk of Pantuso Dance (choreographer) had an inspiring weekend of auditions in Vancouver in June and they are very happy to have selected this year’s cast. More than 100 talented singers and dancers auditioned.

“The exciting news is that we have cast two local Comox Valley stars,” says Bowen-Roberts. “Connor Lucas and Nathaniel Johnson will both be sharing their talents as singers in this year’s show.”

Lucas is working as a professional performer in Toronto and is excited to be returning to the Island to sing the baritone role.

Johnson also grew up in the Comox Valley. He has performed in the Valley in numerous productions including RYT’s Anything Goes, and CYMC’s West Side Story and Fiddler on the Roof.

This year’s show is fast moving and colorful with a variety of dazzling costumes. It takes audiences on an emotional journey through a wide variety of music and dance from rock and roll to Broadway, jazz and classical, interwoven with touching readings and stories.

Tickets are on sale at the Sid Williams box office.
