The kids are back to school and tickets are on sale for the Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular 2013, the seventh annual production.

Last year’s Christmas Spectacular at the Sid Williams Theatre was a hit and sold out weeks in advance. Tickets are on sale and selling for this year’s show. The cast and crew are coming to Courtenay for two performances at the Sid again this year, Dec. 10 and 11 at 7 p.m.

Call 250-338-2430 or visit www.sidwilliamstheatre.com to book yours now.

This year’s singing and dancing extravaganza includes a Queen tribute, a James Bond medley, a Sound of Music medley, Michael Bublé songs, a nostalgia tribute, and other classical hits and Christmas favourites.

Cast auditions were held over three days in Vancouver in May, with more than 100 young dancers and singers turing out. Four singers and five dancers have been cast and are coming to the Island from across Canada to perform. Contracts are signed and we are looking forward to welcoming them into our community in November.

Katy Mayert (Bowen-Roberts), creator of the show, was in London, England this summer choosing more dazzling costumes for this year’s show.

“I love going to see Mr. Bahal in my favourite costume store in London,” she said. “The shop is full of sequins. In talking with Mr. Bahal, I learned this time that each sequin is sewed on individually to each dress. The quality is amazing.”
