In Time for Christmas

“A Christmas Carol” Returns to Watermark Theatre

Watermark Theatre will remount last year’s hit production of “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens in an adaptation by Danielle Pearson from December 14th to 18th, 2022. Wednesday to Saturday night at 7:30PM, Saturday and Sunday at 1:00PM. Starring Cameron MacDuffee and Leah Pritchard. Directed by Rebecca Parent. Following the performances at Watermark the production will tour to The College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts Centre in Summerside for two performances on December 20th and 21st.

It’s Christmas Eve, and whilst London is alive with festive cheer and seasonal goodwill, the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge grows meaner by the minute. A heartless moneylender, who cares more about counting his coins than for his fellow man, Scrooge despises Christmas and everything to do with it. But will a timely visit from the haunting ghosts of Christmas past, present and future change his wicked ways before it’s too late? Two actors introduce us to Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and a host of extraordinary characters as you have never seen them before in a festive retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic tale.

Hooray Canada Day

Today we recognize the National celebration of Canada Day.

On this day, we encourage all Canadians to reflect on our nation’s shared history and the difficult truths of our past. We must acknowledge how the foundations of our country have disproportionality impacted indigenous lived experiences. As a National Arts Centre, we are committed to responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions’ calls to action and continuing to work together on the path of reconciliation. We work in collaboration and friendship with First Nations, Métis, and Inuit artists and storytellers from across Canada to promote cultural learning and understanding. 

Here are some ways we can all support, acknowledge and reflect on this Canada Day.
