A novel “Christmas adventure for the whole family” is being presented next weekend by the Deer Park Alliance Church.

The Adventures of Katie: The Case of the Missing Nativity is a comic play and movie rolled into one, presented from Friday to Sunday, Dec. 5 to 7 at 2960 39th St. in Red Deer.

The part-filmed adventure and part-theatrical production features a young heroine named Katie, who battles the forces of negativity (Professor No and his evil organization DON’T) Katie, along with her gang of young sleuths, aim to retrieve a nativity set that was stolen from an Alberta Church. But they have their work cut out for them when Dr. No bands together with Miss Yes and Herr Maybe to attempt to end Christmas by selling the stolen goods on eBay.

Writer and director Don Tjart said he wanted to create a special production for Red Deer kids, and the result is The Adventures of Katie, which should appeal especially to families with young children.

It will be presented at 7 p.m. on Friday and 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets for the shows are $3 from the church office. For more information, call 403-343-1511.
