A Christmas Carol dinner — with a twist — is presented by Red Deer’s Bull Skit Comedy

Shows run Dec. 5-14 at the Scott Block

Bull Skit’s A(n Improvised) Christmas Carol is back — this time with a catered dinner.

Red Deer’s Bull Skit Comedy is again staging the holiday favourite with a twist. Audience members will get to decide key points in the Charles Dickens storyline about Ebenezer Scrooge and his trio of ghosts.

“What if Scrooge was a teacher? What if the ghost of Christmas past was a film noir detective? What afflicts poor Tiny Tim?

“This is not the boring version you have seen 100 times. This is your version,” said the company’s artistic director, Jenna Goldade, who considers the irreverent comedy show the perfect way to celebrate the holidays.

There will be a dinner theatre menu from Chickadee Catering, prepared by veteran chef Nan Dell, who “continues to bring passionate and unforgettable food to Central Alberta.”

A(n Improvised) Christmas Carol runs from Dec. 5 to 7 and Dec. 13 and 14. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with dinner at 7 p.m., and the show at 8 p.m. at the Scott Block.

Tickets are available at www.BullSkitComedy.com
