Juno Award-winning singer/songwriter Bill Bourne will be home for Christmas — and he’s bringing along some talented friends.

Bourne will portray Ebenezer Scrooge in the musical theatrical “extravaganza,” The Christmas Carol Project, which will be performed on Dec. 20 at the Red Deer College Arts Centre.

Bourne will get support in this story-telling musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ legendary Christmas tale from Edmonton musicians Maria Dunn, Al Brant, Dave Clarke, Kevin Cook, Bill Hobson, Dale Ladouceur, Terry Morrison and Tom Roschkov.

The Christmas Carol Project is being promoted as a perfect family outing — or great alternative to standard office Christmas parties.

Tickets to the 7:30 p.m. show, presented by the Central Music Festival, are on sale for $42 from the Black Knight Ticket Centre. The Red Deer Food Bank will also be accepting donations at the event.
