Alliance puts on Five Corners Christmas play

The Christmas play follows the lives of four families as soldiers return home from the Second World War.

The holiday production of Five Corners Christmas runs Friday December 5 at 7 pm at the Alliance Church 8700 Young Road; Saturday December 6 at 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Sunday December 7 at 2:30 p.m.

Chilliwack Alliance Church is getting ready for its fifth annual Five Corners Christmas production, Dec. 5-7.  This year’s production of Five Corners Christmas – Forever Allies follows the lives of four families as soldiers return home from the Second World War.

Through the commitment to family and friends, the understanding of pain and suffering, and the commitment to love and faith, these families strive to move forward with their lives in post-war 1946.

This year’s script was written by local theatre artist Megan Mackenzie and combines the talents of 12 actors, 60 choir members and a small orchestra.  The roles of Joe and Sylvia Sutherland are played by local residents, Jon Freeman and Phyllis Lee.  Megan and Rebecca Mackenzie, graduates of the University of the Fraser Valley Theatre Program, are playing the roles of Clara Bailey and Flossie Fletcher.  Other cast members include Joel de Zwaan, Sara Dyck, Kelly Edgeley, Kevin Hegeman, Torry Janz, Kay Rempel, Riley Zacharias and Katelyn Zutter.  The production is being directed by local resident and University of the Fraser Valley Theatre Department graduate Jennifer Zacharias.

After each performance children are invited to visit the Children’s Feature called “Christmas Memories” where they can create their own holiday souvenir and snack on 1940s style candy.

Five Corners Christmas runs Friday December 5 at 7 pm  at 8700 Young Road; Saturday December 6 at 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Sunday December 7 at 2:30 p.m.  Tickets are available free of charge (an offering will be collected at each performance) and are now available at the Chilliwack Alliance Church office.
