Interactive Christmas show big on audience participation

Singer Tony Barton aims to bring community together with 'Jingle' at Surrey's Bell Performing Arts Centre.

Nothing brings in the holiday cheer like indoor snowball fights, cellphone carolling, and Christmas crooning – at least according to singer Tony Barton.

Barton is the producer of an interactive concert called “Jingle” that will be held in the Bell Performing Arts Centre on Dec. 13.

“It’s a little bit unique in its creation,” said Barton, who stars in the show. “It’s not just a sit down and listen to some great Christmas tunes, I really incorporate the audience.”

Influenced by Frank Sinatra, Barton has also been told his style is similar to Michael Bublé.

The former Broadway singer guarantees his act will leave everyone in the Christmas spirit, and said that it’s all about community.

“We just wanted to create something that brings everyone together, especially for the holidays,” said Barton.

In keeping with community spirit, partial proceeds from the show will be donated to the Surrey Memorial Hospital’s new pediatric emergency wing for the purchase of diagnostic imaging equipment.

Jingle takes place at the Bell Performing Arts Centre, 6250 144 St., on Dec. 13 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the Bell Centre Box Office at 604-507-6355 or online at and are $37 for adults and $22 for children 12 and under.
