Hotel Bethlehem, a rollicking Christmas show

Cawston Players present a definitely different take on events occurring in the Hotel Bethlehem.

Directing The Cawston Players Christmas production of Hotel Bethlehem is Amanda Elyzen who brings with her a formal training in theatre in Ontario and a wealth of talent in acting and in theatre generally.


Cawston Players present a definitely different take on events occurring in the Hotel Bethlehem.

The shady innkeeper, Joshua, looks like he is going to get crucified being caught making out with his maid named Mary.

Two Roman soldiers are ready to put him on the cross unless he can bribe and lie his way out of the predicament.

The whole affair is complicated by the arrival of Joseph with his pregnant wife, Mary, and two shepherds wanting to give their lamb (also named Mary) a natural water birth.

Throw in the arrival of the three “Wise Men” and a Roman census taker, charmed by the alluring maid Mary and convinced Joshua is hiding rooms, thus avoiding taxes and you have the makings of a highly entertaining evening out.

The play is written by Vancouver’s Drew McCreadie and directed by Amanda Elyzen and Bob McAtamney,

Hotel Bethlehem is probably not a kids entertainment but certainly a show full of fun and laughter for grownups.

There are three performances at the Cawston Hall on Friday December 6 at 7 p.m, Saturday December 7 at 7p.m and a matinee Sunday December 8 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $12 at Similkameen Agencies or Cawston Marketplace. Ticket inquiries, call 250 499 7217.   Refreshments available.
