Christmas at Rainbow - A Musical Production

Founded in 1991, the Whistler Children’s Chorus (WCC) is a non-audition community choir that welcomes children in grades one to seven from Whistler and the Sea to Sky Corridor. Our mission statement is to provide local children with the opportunity for musical, social, and intellectual growth by learning, rehearsing, and performing music from a variety of eras and places of origin. Since 2018, we have operated in partnership with Whistler Public Library, allowing us to offer this program to families free of charge.

The funding we have received from 100 Women Whistler will all the WCC to produce ‘Christmas at Rainbow Lodge’ in December 2022. This play was written by Bob Daly and Molly Boyd, and was first performed by the students of Myrtle Philip School in December 1984. The musical tells a shortened and somewhat fictionalized story of how Myrtle and Alex Philip came to build Rainbow Lodge, beginning with Alex’s chance meeting of John Millar in Vancouver in 1911. Unlike many holiday concerts, most of the music in this show is not about Christmas. Instead, it features folk songs from the Pacific Northwest, many collected by Philip J Thomas, who was instrumental in preserving the folk music of British Columbia. Our plan is to work in partnership with the Whistler Museum, including historical photos of Myrtle, Alex, and Rainbow Lodge in the show; and, we hope to produce the show at Maury Young Arts Centre.
