Written by Briana Brown and directed by Rob Kempson, "Christmastown" is a world premiere farce about making magic all year long. Kringle, Ontario is in a rut. When the well-meaning town reeve devises a tourism development plan to celebrate Christmas all year round, the town thinks it's a great idea. But two weeks and a heat wave later, they're having second thoughts. Nora, whose convenience store (and gas station) is the centre of cultural activity, is suddenly desperate for a much-needed vacation. Throw in an anxious restaurateur, a sassy teenager, and a wide-eyed new resident, and you've got a recipe for a veritable blizzard of hilarity. Performances at 7:30 p.m. on August 16 and 17, August 22 to 24, and August 29 to 31. Performances at 2 p.m. on August 18, August 20 to 22, August 24 and 25, August 27 to 29, and August 31 and September 1.
