PACE builds wonder in Langford

PACE brings you back to The Most Wonderful Time of the Year for its annual winter show.

PACE brings you back to The Most Wonderful Time of the Year for its annual winter show.

The Programs for Academic and Creative Enrichment performance is created with a cast of 320 students from kindergarten to Grade 12.

“This show is guaranteed  to get you into the Christmas spirit,” said Sandy Webster-Worthy, artistic director for PACE. “You can sing along to all your Christmas favourites, everything from traditional carols like “Silent Night” to kids’ favourites like “Jingle Bells” to contemporary classics like “Mary’s Boy Child”.”

Old-time Christmas carols, dances and comedic sketches are all incorporated into the show, including an all-male Christmas Can Can and even a Santa who looks a lot like Elvis Presley.

Characters such as Frosty the Snowman and the Grinch will also make appearances at the Langford show.

“This isn’t just a school concert, it’s a real Christmas event,” said Webster-Worthy. “The program is in its 28th year, so this really is a West Shore tradition.”

There will be photo opportunities with the Grinch, Frosty and Santa in the lobby.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year plays at the Isabelle Reader Theatre, 1026 Goldstream Ave. Evening shows begin at 7 p.m. on Dec. 3, 4, 6 and 7. Matinees are at 2 p.m. on Dec. 7 and 8.

 

Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for seniors and students and are available at the Westshore Centre for Learning, 814 Goldstream Ave. For more information call 250-391-9002
