Rosebud Theatre's final production of 2017 opened on Friday, November 10 in the hamlet about a half hour west of Drumheller and, if early responses are any indication, Cariboo Magi should make for a merry Christmas.
 
"It was close to a full house on opening night and we had some really good audience reactions so far," reported marketing associate Heather Little. "It's starting to fill up, so if people haven't booked their tickets they should get on it."
 
The play tells the story of a small troupe of non-actors who book a gig in the Cariboo Region of British Columbia, the hardships they go through to get there and what happens when they finally take the stage. So, what makes Cariboo Magi so popular with people?
 
"It's just a really funny show," replied Little. "If anybody's seen 'Chickens' already, it's the same writer, so they know that it's funny and they're just really enjoying it."
 
Cariboo Magi runs through December 23 at Rosebud Theatre.
 
"In March we'll do Winfield's Inferno, the Winfield Farms series is coming back, and then we have Driving Miss Daisy, which starts April 6," stated Little. It will also kick off Rosebud Theatre's 35th season.
