Description

Bah Humbug!

Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol comes to life in modern-day east Vancouver under the direction of Renae Morriseau, one of Vancouver’s leading writer, director and a previous recipient of the City of Vancouver Mayor’s Arts Award.

With a script that is fine-tuned annually in response to the current issues affecting Vancouver’s Downtown East Side (DTES), Bah Humbug! offers a production that celebrates the transformative power of human redemption.

Bah Humbug! features celebrated musician and story teller Jim Byrnes* as Ebenezer Scrooge, Renae Morriseau* as the Narrator, Kevin McNulty* as Marley, and gospel and blues singer/actor as Tom Pickett* as Bob Cratchit. These Vancouver favourites are joined on stage by a cast of professional and DTES community actors, including Stephen Lytton, winner of the Governor General's Caring Canadian Award.

Musical performances are diverse and include folk, blues, pop, gospel and industrial rock along with traditional seasonal favourites, directed by Bill Costin. Strathcona-based artist Richard Tetrault, presents large scale projections of his monoprints and linocuts of the back alleys, ravens, and houses of East Vancouver.

Commissioned and co-produced by SFU Woodward’s Cultural Programs with Vancouver Moving Theatre in partnership with Full Circle: First Nations Performance, Bah Humbug! supports the flagship Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival.
