The Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular is coming to the Sid Williams this year and plans are well underway.

Tickets are now on sale at the Sid box office.

This year’s singing and dancing extravaganza includes Neil Diamond hits, a Marilyn Monroe tribute, Tom Jones and friends, a Christmas Around the World set, medleys from Singin’ in the Rain and Les Miserables as well as many more classical hits and Christmas favourites.

A cast of 14 professional singers, dancers and musicians have been hired and are ready to begin rehearsing on Nov. 19.

This is the sixth annual production — a new show and new experience every year.

Creator and director Katy Mayert now lives in the Comox Valley and hopes to continue to bring her production to the community.

Visit the website www.yellowpointchristmasspectacular.ca for more information about the show. Last year’s show was sold out several weeks in advance, so get your tickets early.
