Hotel Bethlehem

I still haven't done my Christmas shopping and the big day is NEXT WEEK. Can you believe it? Are you all caught up? Or are you too distracted like I am, and doing other fun things like checking out this hilarious satirical/slapstick comedy over at the Firehall Arts Centre?

Hotel Bethlehem is back for a third year running at the Firehall, flexing its comical muscles just in time for the holiday season, sending up the story of Mary and Joseph and the Inn that didn't have enough room for them. One of the highlights had to be the Three Kings who show up not just with gifts for the saviour, but with hilarity for the audience as well. (That was a badly crafted sentence! I'm still hungover from my holiday drinking this weekend, methinks.)

So if you're looking for something festive that doesn't involve a singing Christmas Tree or hordes of shoppers elbowing you out of the way, then why not take in some theatre that will make you laugh and remind you what Christmas is all about.

Forget Christmas Mass, go to this instead! Hotel Bethlehem is a riotous joyride that shines brighter than any star in the sky this season. Now on at the Firehall Arts Centre until December 23!
