When a magical snow fedora is stolen from a princess, so is the opportunity of experiencing the spirit of Christmas.

In Four Season’s Musical Theatre production of Bulby and the Christmas Jackalope, audiences can travel along with Bulby and his friends who try to retrieve the hat to save the season.

This holiday production is geared towards families and was written specifically to captivate young children.

“It’s a cute little story involving friends, teamwork and getting along,” said director Heather Senkler.

The play was written for Four Season’s Musical Theatre by local writer Sasha Moriarty-Schieven.

The one-act play has a small cast of six with a mix of youth and adult actors.

“This is a good introduction to theatre for younger people,” Senkler said.

An interesting twist to the play is the characters engage the audience by asking for help and using dramatic irony.

“People should come out and support the local talent,” Senkler said.

Shows are Dec. 17 at 2 p.m. and Dec. 18 at 1:30 p.m. at Isabelle Reader Theatre, 1026 Goldstream Ave.

Tickets are $12 for adults, seniors and students and $8 for children. Bring a non-perishable food donation to receive $1 off ticket prices.

The Juan de Fuca library branch is hosting a free preview on Dec. 15, 7 p.m.
