      Bah Humbug! 2019

      Bah Humbug! – an Eastside Christmas Carol celebrating the spirit and humanity of Charles Dickens and the Downtown East Side community. Join us for the 10th annual and final production of this beloved holiday classic! Juno Award winner Jim Byrnes leads this inspiring musical ensemble which reveals Vancouver's pressing social issues showcased in this riveting rendition.  Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is beautifully retold in this contemporary adaptation cleverly set within Vancouver's Downtown East Side. In Bah Humbug!, Scrooge preys upon his desperate clientele as a merciless pawnshop operator/hotel landlord and displaces people through heartless renovictions.  This poignant yet humourous musical, directed by Michael Boucher, features an impressive cast led by Jim Byrnes, Tom Pickett, Kevin McNulty, Sam Bob, plus the return of Margo Kane. The St. James Academy Choir adds their rich voices to this unique adaptation. We are also pleased to welcome back Governor General Community Award recipient Stephen Lytton to the production, alongside three new cast members and a musician.  Renowned muralist Richard Tetrault's iconic images of back alleys, ravens and Vancouver's portside provides a compelling backdrop to this adaptation. Plus, blues, gospel and industrial rock genres are interspersed with traditional seasonal favourites lead by musical director Bill Costin. Don’t miss the show that patrons are raving about!  Attending the Show  Bah Humbug! takes place in the Fei and Milton Wong Experimental Theatre at the Goldcorp Centre for the Arts. The Theatre is located in Room B2290, on level B2, and is accessible via the stairs or the elevator.  The show is approximately 85 minutes, with no intermission.

Commissioned and co-produced by SFU Woodward's Cultural Programs, Vancouver Moving Theatre and Full Circle: First Performance as a community benefit for the annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival.  We acknowledge that this event takes place on the Traditional Coast Salish Lands including the Squamish (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw), Tsleil-Waututh (səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ) and Musqueam (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm) Nations.
