Lyric Theatre 8th annual Christmas Matinee, Dec. 17-18, 2016

Written by 

The 8th annual Lyric Theatre Children's Christmas Matinee took place on Dec. 17 and 18. The event continues a tradition that happened decades ago at Swift Current’s historic theatre, when a Christmas movie was shown to children. This year’s program started with the reading of a children's story by Taylor Harder and a musical performance by Maverick School students Desiree and Dakota Leonard. This was followed by a performance of Rachel Wormsbecher's short play “You can't teach an old elf new tricks.” It was directed by Nancy Bridal and the actors were Keith Adam, Cole Johnson and Zac Lee. Children then had an opportunity to make a Christmas gift during a craft session and the afternoon's highlight was a visit from Santa.
