December 13-23, 2016  -  Limited Run. Ten Shows Only.

Louise has created a one-act Christmas concert for COAL MINE THEATRE.
The second act presents Kenneth Welsh reading A Child’s Christmas in Wales.

We are excited to present our first ever holiday-themed show. Focusing on Christmas memories that are happy and sad, festive and mournful, but ultimately hopeful, A COAL MINE CHRISTMAS is a seasonal gift from two of Canada’s most talented performers, Louise Pitre and Kenneth Welsh.
Louise Pitre will perform a decidedly non-traditional holiday concert, and Kenneth Welsh will present a heartwarming reading of Dylan Thomas’s iconic poem A Child’s Christmas in Wales.
