Get ready for gags, hoots, belly laughs and giggles as Shuswap Theatre puts a musical Scrooge on stage.

Even while Shuswap Theatre’s successful The Odd Couple was running, Bah, Humbug! was in rehearsal.

A much-loved Christmas tradition is back, with a fun-filled musical pantomime based on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.

It features all the familiar characters, including Ebenezer Scrooge, The ghost of Jacob Marley and the Cratchitt family, except that Tiny Tim is now a teenager with a bit of attitude. He thinks he’s funny, but his family is not so sure.

But Shuswap families can be sure they’ll be entertained by the on-stage antics of Bah Humbug!

The guest director is Paul Kirkwood-Hackett from Asparagus Theatre in Armstrong. He is supported by Jaeden Izik-Dzurko as pianist, with choral rehearsal assistance from Peter Blacklock. Randy Brogden and Darby McEachern-Corley are responsible for the set design.

Mike Nash plays the principle female role – Scrooge’s old girlfriend, Belle, who is doing her best to care for London’s orphans.

Scrooge comes to life in talented Jason Smeltzer, with Randy Brogden entertaining as Marley’s ghost.

Bah Humbug! features a cast of 24 in this Christmas musical that will draw guffaws from everyone.

Tickets are available at the door. Shows take place Dec. 5, 6, 12 and 13 at 7:30 p.m., and Dec. 6, 7, 14 matinees take place at 1:30 p.m.
