From Friday, December 4th to Sunday, December 6th, the Lake Windermere Players Community Theatre will be showcasing their production of acclaimed Canadian playwright Norm Fosters Bobs Your Elf at the Windermere Community Hall.
The play is about an elf named Bob who gets banished from the North Pole because of a bad attitude. To teach Bob a valuable lesson, Santa Claus sends him to a small town to assist a group of amateur actors in staging the greatest Christmas Pageant in the communitys history.
Promising fun and laughter for the whole family, this play will put the jingle in your bells just in time for the holiday season!
Director Trevor Adams, along with his team at Lake Windermere Players, wanted to bring to the valley a Christmas show for this holiday season, but to also make sure that it was a full-length family production.
With over a month of rehearsal for the volunteer cast of six lead actors, actresses, and eight members of the childrens choir, Bobs Your Elf will be sure to entertain.
Lake Windermere Players Community Theatre is a not-for-profit society that has been in operation (on and off) since 1936.
Mr. Adams, who grew up in the valley, recalls fond memories of being involved with the troupe through his high school years and loves the sense of community that locally-produced theatre creates.
Tickets for the show are $6 for children under 16, and $13 for adults. They can be found at the Circle Cafe in Invermere, the Windermere Family Pantry and, of course, at the door.
Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. for the Friday, December 4th and Saturday, December 5th shows, and 2 p.m for the Sunday, December 6th performance. Doors open half an hour before show time.
