The Rented Christmas will start its run on Nov. 25

HARRISTON - The Grey Wellington Theatre Guild presents The Rented Christmas, by Norman Ahern Jr. and Yvonne Ahern starting Nov. 25.

Based on a short story by J. Lillian Vandervere, the tale is how John Dale’s rented Christmas turns into a new life for all concerned.

Shortly before Christmas, and simply on a whim, Dale enters a rental shop that advertises “We rent anything” and tells the owner, Anne Weston, that he would like to rent a Christmas.

Reluctant, but at the same time eager to satisfy the customer, Weston starts taking down his requests and after Dale leaves the shop, asks herself “What have I gotten myself into?” With the help of her stock boy, Jimmy, they get to work trying to fill the almost impossible order.

This play is for children and adults alike said Director John Hogg.

“And be assured you will leave humming, if not singing, a carol with a smile on your face, a warm heart, a good feeling inside and full of the Christmas Spirit,” Hogg said.

The cast of includes: Mark Hills, Marja Hillis, Mona Hillis, Rosyln Fortier, all of Mount Forest: Jacob Bieman, Dan Bieman, Sadie-Lyn Bieman, Emma McRobb, Laura Gray, Joshua Gray, Julia Gray, Ivy Norris and Samantha Wylie, all of Harriston; Page Reidt of Clifford; Christine Wick of Listowel; Joanne Weber of Ayton; and Anna Zimmerman and Joel Zimmerman of Moorefield.

The Rented Christmas runs Nov. 25 and 26 at 7pm, with matinees slated for Nov. 26 and 27 at 1:30pm. The Nov. 26 matinee will end in plenty of time to catch the Harriston Santa Claus parade and other activities in the town.

Tickets are $5 and are available by calling 519-338-2778, or order by e-mail at

Tickets are also available at Harriston Home Hardware and Shoppers Drug Mart in Mount Forest.
