THE PINCH PENNY POKER PLAYERS CHRISTMAS LIGHT TOUR 
Written and Performed by Nora D. Randall

Keep the joyous season alive all year round! Tune in for an episodic holiday treat for lovers of cozy mysteries, old ladies, cantankerous bus drivers, the beauty of southern Vancouver Island and the magic of its celebrations.

Join the Pinch Pennys as they hit the Ladysmith Light Up, the Chemainus Dinner Theatre, the Duncan Farmers’ Market, and Butchart Gardens’ Magic of Christmas (circa 2005). Much as they are out to celebrate, they are dogged by a series of ever increasingly alarming events. And why are they stuck with the bus company boss’ mother?

Follow along as school-bus driver Mavis sets out on her greatest bus trip yet. Told in a series of episodes to be released regularly over the course of 2023, Mavis will let you know exactly how she got involved, even though the other bus driver turned out to be her irritating ex-lover. She’ll reveal who’s on the bus, all the weird things that happened — some of them which only she saw (and that scared the bejesus out of her) — how the old ladies were undaunted, though forgetful, and what happened with the boss’ mother!
