This poignant production features celebrated musician and storyteller Jim Byrnes* as Ebenezer Scrooge, Renae Morriseau* as the Narrator, Kevin McNulty* as Marley, and gospel and blues singer/actor as Tom Pickett* as Bob Cratchit. These Vancouver favourites are joined on stage by a cast of professional and DTES community actors, including Stephen Lytton, winner of the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award.
Strathcona-based artist Richard Tetrault, responsible for over 40 public mural projects in the city, presents large-scale projections of his monoprints and linocuts of the back alleys, ravens, and houses of East Vancouver.
Musical performances are diverse and include folk, blues, pop, gospel and industrial rock along with traditional seasonal favourites, directed by Bill Costin, featuring the Saint James Academy Youth Choir.
This imaginative all-ages production offers a bittersweet twist on a cherished classic that celebrates the transformative power of human redemption. Now more than 150 years old, Dickens’ timeless story remains relevant today, especially in light of parallels between the economic disparities of Victorian London and Vancouver’s Downtown East Side.
Commissioned and co-produced by SFU Woodward’s Cultural Programs with Vancouver Moving Theatre in partnership with Full Circle: First Nations Performance, Bah! Humbug! supports the flagship Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival, which partners each year with forty-plus Downtown Eastside arts and non-arts organizations.
