Great Big Story coming to Mission’s Clarke Theatre

Valley Christian School presenting annual holiday show on Dec. 13

In what has become a holiday tradition, hitting all the right notes when it comes to the sentiment of Christmas, Valley Christian School presents their Christmas program Great Big Story at the Clarke Theatre on Dec 13.

Many of the school’s students make the trip to Mission from Abbotsford to attend school, and they’ve been putting in extra time on the road these past months, as the Kindergarten through Grade 8 students have been rehearsing their hearts out ahead of performing in this heart-warming Christmas production.

The show will include performances by the entire student body as well as smaller grade groups, including some special performances from duet and trio singers and dancers.

The featured flag dance piece was choreographed by the students themselves and will lead to a colourful climactic finale.

Without spoiling the surprise in the program, be prepared that this year, during an entertaining re-enactment of the Christmas story during the song Great News – when the lights go out, the show is just getting started!

The show is free to attend and guests are invited to join the performers for a coffee and sweets reception following the show.

“The many hours of work that go into our Christmas program is all worth it when we see our students shining on stage with their many talents and abilities. But our real goal is that the true light of Christmas shines the brightest of all,” said musical director Julie Loeppky.

The production runs for one night only, at the Clarke Theatre (33700 Prentis Ave, Mission) at 7 p.m. on Dec. 13.
