Clova Cinema floats Christmas pageant

The Clova Cinema is looking for interested performers to join its first-ever Christmas pageant, a fundraiser for its digital conversion.

Ready for a close-up in the Christmas pageant of your dreams.

Who says Christmas pageants are reserved for schools and churches only?

The Clova Cinema is looking for interested performers who want to be part of the movie house’s first-ever Christmas pageant.

The family-owned, single-screen cinema is looking for five-to eight-minute acts in hopes of putting together a full program for a family-friendly, all-ages seasonal fundraiser.

At least eight to 10 acts needed to confirm by Friday, Nov. 22 for the show to go on, but already the plan sounds like it will be going ahead; due to a flood of responses, the Clova will be holding auditions.

Samantha Le Drew of the Clova says auditions will be open to Dec. 7, and applicants are being asked to submit a brief video of their performance piece.

“We currently have 27 people interested but only have room for 20,” she said.

The date hasn’t yet been confirmed.

Meantime, volunteers are needed, as are donations of door prizes and items for a silent auction.

Fifty per cent of the proceeds from the event would go towards the cinema’s digital conversion, with the rest going to a local charity called the People’s Foundation of Sierra Leone.

Donations for the Surrey Food Bank would be collected as well. Email
