A free family Christmas event takes place Saturday at the ACT.

A Christmas Tradition will include Christmas caroling, refreshments and a reindeer hat craft for the children.

Ebenezer Scrooge is transformed into a kind man after being paid a visit by the ghost of his former business partner and the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.

DuffleBag Theatre is known for using members of the audience to play the main parts in its improvised performances of classic stories and fairy tales.

Nobody is picked ahead of time and those who are chosen to join on stage are given costumes, props and guidance from the narrator.

The theatrical company is based in Toronto and has been performing since 1992. Members have a repertoire of 15 different shows and perform more than 600 a year.

Both events take place on Dec. 3 at the ACT, 11944 Haney Place, Maple Ridge.

A Christmas tradition takes place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the lobby.

DuffleBag Theatre’s performance of A Christmas Carol takes place at 3:30 p.m. and tickets are $15 each or $50 for a package of four.
