The Summerland Singers and Players will present a dramatic reading of a well-loved holiday story next month.

The reading of Charles Dickens’ novel, A Christmas Carol, will be held on Friday, Dec. 5 at 7:30 p.m. at Summerland United Church.

Bob Read, president of Summerland Singers and Players, said this is the second year the reading will be presented.

It is a fundraiser with all proceeds going to the Community Resource Centre.

“We’re not doing a play version,” Read said.

“We’re doing a reading and it is quite effective.”

During the reading, scenes from the story will be projected onto a screen behind the readers.

The evening is hosted by Dennis Walker of SO Country and features Mike Swanson of EZ Rock, Armand Houle, David Sparks, Don Gayton and Monica Keetch.

Two choirs will present music during the evening. They are the United Church Chorus, conducted by Kathleen Estabrooks and the Summerland Children’s Choir, conducted by Linnea Good.

Read said the organizers hope to make the reading a holiday tradition in Summerland.

Tickets for the reading are available at Summerland United Church and at the Summerland Community Arts Centre.
