What Is ODE?

One December Evening is the annual week long Christmas production of Vernon Alliance Church. ODE is a theme based theatre, music and dessert experience that celebrated its 16th year in 2018. Every year we have an original script written by Jason Armstrong which is always full of great humour, and thoughtful insight towards everyday life and faith. Scenes are interspersed with modern music selections. ODE is inclusive & accessible to a wide demographic of ages and stages. Make it a family event, or invite friends and colleagues for a night out of entertainment and dessert. Whether you find yourself in a church regularly or not, you'll be comfortable at VAC for this well-loved community event. On behalf of the cast, crew, band and all the volunteers, we hope to see you at our next ODE performance!

Original Story

One December Evening is an original script written and directed by Jason Armstrong. Aside from having a charming Christmas theme, each story is a lighthearted drama that explores what it means to be human with themes of forgiveness, reconciliation, and love that run throughout.

Live Music

Another big part of the One December Evening experience is the live band.  All the songs are tied to the themes and narrative of the story, and they cover a range of styles from rock, pop, folk, and classic Christmas tunes.


During the intermission we serve a variety of delicious cheesecakes with tea and coffee, all included with your ticket!
