Shuswap group steals Christmas grins

Shuswap Theatre's improv group presents two versions of their Christmas production - one for families and one for adults.

  • Nov. 21, 2012 8:00 p.m.

Shuswap Theatre’s Laughing Gas Improv Troupe will perform two versions of How the Grins Stole Christmas, the hilarious songs and stories of Christmas.

The group will perform the family-rated version Saturday, Dec. 8 at 1:30 p.m.

Admission is $5 per person and the show runs about 90 minutes.

The adult version, directed by Julia Body and Gloria Cox, plays out Friday, Nov. 30 and Saturday, Dec. 1 at 7:30 p.m.

“This is a great idea for staff Christmas parties,” says producer Monica Kriese, who says the show is filled with laughter.

The adult performance includes the improv performance group and musical and theatrical guests – Patrick Benson, Peter Blacklock, Fred Green, Kim MacMillan and Aidan Sparks.

Tickets to evening performances are $15 each and include appies. A cash bar will be available.

For ticket information, call 250-833-6100 or visit




Director Lois Archer-Duell will hold auditions for Shuswap Theatre’s winter production, The Curious Savage by John Patrick. It is a warm-hearted comedic play about Ethel P. Savage, a woman whose husband recently died and left her $200 million. Her stepchildren feel she is spending the money foolishly and when they cannot get their hands on the money, commit her to a “sanatorium” named The Cloisters with the hope of bringing her to her senses.


Auditions run Saturday, Nov. 24 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 25 at 1 p.m. Newcomers are welcome.  Rehearsals begin in early January (no commitments in December.) For a copy of the script or more information, contact Lois at 250-804-2998 or Karen at
