During the gold rush, a bedraggled troupe of players head north to perform. Cast of 2 men and 2 women.

A drunken Anglican minister who has failed to convert anyone in ten years, an avaricious saloon keeper with a murder in her past, a pregnant child star who has become too old for her roles and a man who claims to be the last of the Mohicans all need a new lease on life. They intercept a contract meant for a San Diego theatre company, form a bedraggled troupe of players and head north, through the wilds of the Cariboo gold rush to perform a Christmas Pageant for the Theatre Royal in Barkerville, BC.

On their way, they rehearse a hilarious pastiche of Hamlet, The Last of the Mohicans,A Christmas Carol and The Gospel of Luke, gradually finding a way to legitimize their only true talents as professional liars.”Cariboo Magi is an unabashed celebration of the power of theatre to renew our lives and banish our cares.
