A Mistletoe Wish is a Christmas romantic comedy of errors – plus puppets and audience sing-along.

Join Martina Haakenstad, Cam Culham, Carla Bernachi and Bill Nance in singing the crooner classics like I’ll be home for Christmas, Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire, White Christmas and more. Dec. 16 and 17 at 8 p.m. at Merlin’s Sun Theatre, 1983 Fairfield Road.

The play is based on a classic Christmas movie, Christmas in Connecticut with the addition of Christmas carols and puppets.

“People seem to really like it,” said Haakenstad. “Puppets are magical. Right away they put people into the mind set of childhood. They bring forward an element of fantasy and joy. The puppets also really help to entertain people, we’re not just standing up there and singing, we are really interacting with the audience through the puppets.”

Tickets $15 at door at Ivy’s book store on Oak Bay Ave. Refreshments served. For information call 250-598-7488 or email timgosley@telus.net.
