Yellowpoint holiday spectacle returns this weekend

Musical variety show offers a wide range of genres, along with many of your seasonal favourites

With new material in the mix and all the enthusiasm they can muster, performers in the 13th annual Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular are set to make this beloved holiday show’s return to McPherson Playhouse memorable.

On stage for two shows Dec. 14 (3 and 7 p.m.) and another at 3 p.m. Dec. 15, the cast will take you on a bit of a time travel through the entertainment era, performing dance styles from tap to Broadway, and ballet to jazz.

This year’s show includes musical medleys of well-known songs by Billy Joel, Gloria Estefan, Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin, a nostalgic wartime set, a medley of songs from Singin’ in the Rain, music from Amelie, Bing Crosby’s classic White Christmas, plus many more classic hits and Christmas favourites.

Each era will be accented by beautiful period costumes. Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular creator, producer and director Katy Bowen-Roberts says selecting the costumes was “one of my favourite tasks of the creative process.”

The cast is a mix of many returnees plus some newcomers, including some from as far away as Ontario.

Many locals make this dazzling spectacle of music and dance part of their annual Christmas season traditions. Tickets are selling fast! Visit rmts.bc.ca to search online, or call the McPherson box office at 250-386-6121.
