The Coyotes' Christmas

The Coyotes' Christmas

By Peter Anderson

Directed by Howard deLong

December 10-19

When three hungry coyotes disguised as shepherds (in a futile effort to catch sheep) are told by an angel that “unto you is born this day the Lamb of God”, they set out to steal the lamb, not realizing it is the baby Jesus.

You may have seen this play at the Caravan Farm Theatre’s annual Christmas show and sleigh ride. Peter Anderson has written and acted in many of the Caravan’s most popular plays.

Adults $15, Kids (5-12) $7.

Please note:  The Dec 18th matinee is a Relaxed Performance. What is this?

The Coyotes’ Christmas is presented by special arrangement with the Playwrights Guild of Canada.

It is intended for those folk who would love to see live theatre but find the normal theatre environment difficult. There are certain modifications made to lighting, sound effects and audience movement. While anyone can come to a relaxed performance be aware that there will be more than the usual amount of sound, movement and possible verbal reactions to the performance.

New Dates January 6 & 7, 2022

Due to the recent road closures, David and Ken have rescheduled to the above dates.  What do I do with the tickets I bought for November 18th or 19th?

David and Ken’s Comedy with Music!  is an audience fuelled, conversational comedy show with real stories, character driven improv scenes and hilarious, spontaneous songs with world class guitar playing. It’s a playful-absurdist-adventure from legendary Vancouver comedians David Milchard and Ken Lawson that will leave you feeling joyful and connected.
 
Who are David Milchard and Ken Lawson? After years of performing improvisational comedy at festivals, Vancouver TheatreSports, The Second City, and the international sensation the Comic Strippers, these two comics have strapped on their guitars and combined two of their greatest loves: Music and Improv Comedy. If you feel like you’ve seen these two before, you certainly have because they’ve been cast in hundreds of movies and television shows over the years including productions by Netflix, ABC, amazon, NBC, CW, Disney, and the Youtube sensation Convos with my 2yrold
