THREE THINGS TO DO: ‘A Christmas Carol’ at former Clova theatre this weekend

Also: Kenyan theme for concert at city hall, plus a 'Seasonal Sizzle' hosted by Surrey Board of Trade

Ava Carich performs at the Christmas Concert for Kenya event on Saturday evening.

1. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – on the events calendar, at least. This weekend, the former Clova theatre, now owned and operated by Crossridge Church, will be a stage for radio-play readings of “A Christmas Carol.” Fourteen actors with local community-theatre group Imagine That! Productions will perform the popular Charles Dickens script in front of an audience during four show times, from Dec. 2 to 4. For details and ticket info, visit Imaginethatplace.com.

2. Over at Surrey City Hall’s Centre Stage theatre, choirs and singers will do their thing on Saturday evening (Dec. 3) during “A Christmas Concert for Kenya.” The benefit event, presented by New Hope Therapeutic Society and directed by Deanna Wegenkittl-Baker, will feature performances by Frontline Voices, Ava Carich (pictured at right in a Peace Arch News photo), Tiffany Desrosiers and Spiral Dance Co., among others. Show tickets are $15 via 604-501-5566 and Tickets.Surrey.ca. CLICK HERE to read more about this event.

3. Put a little “Seasonal Sizzle” in your week by attending Surrey Board of Trade’s annual holiday-month business event/party, at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel on Wednesday, Dec. 7. The “Christmas in Paradise”-themed gathering will bring several hundred people together for live music, food and networking, with admission by donation to Surrey Food Bank. More event details are posted at Businessinsurrey.com, or dial 604-634-0341.
