Gabriola acting troupe Radio After Dark put on a brilliant performance at the Black Goose Inn Dec.17.

The five-person cast recreated the classic Christmas tale Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer impeccably, as it would have appeared back in radio’s glory days.

The talented actors sang songs accompanied by keyboard in the cozy wooden setting, while perfecting voices like Yukon Cornelius, Hermey the dentist, Rudolph and the Abominable Snow Monster.

The actors used props and crinkled egg cartons, tooted horns and scraped styrofoam to get the perfect sound effects.

The cast returned after a sold out show at the same venue on Halloween.

Residents filled the tables and the upstairs balcony of the Black Goose Inn for the Christmas performances early this week, while enjoying British Pub Fare.
