An amateur theatre group in Merritt is putting its Christmas show on the road.
The Merritt Drama Club will present The Rented Christmas, a play by Norman C. Ahern and Yvonne Ahern, in Kamloops on Dec. 22.
The play tells the story of John Dale, who hasn’t enjoyed a “real” Christmas in years, and this year decides to rent a Christmas from a local rental shop — and a host of actors to serve as his family.
Two shows will also be presented in Merritt on Dec. 19 at 7 p.m. at the Crossroads Community Church, 2990 Voght St., and on Dec. 23 at Merritt Secondary School, 1561 Chapman St.
Admission is by donation.
