PORT ANGELES — Port Angeles Community Players Children’s Theater will present “A Christmas Spectacular” variety show this weekend.

It also features dancing sugarplums, elves, tap dancing, caroling and a child violinist.

The cast ranges in age from 2 to 14.

Members include Charlie and Rylie Blackwell, Lillie Commeree, Bethany and Eli DeJesus, Bennett and Braden Gray, Jenna Hampton, Zade and Zoie Harris, Kaelyn Herring, Brock Hope, Holden Hughes, Molly and Conrad Kussin, Avonlea Lawrence, McHenry Miller, Matthew Pritchett, Sam Rees, Belle Robinson, Isaac and Julia Rutledge, Veronica Schaefermeyer, Audrey Tesreau, Cela and Killian Waknitz, Finn and Mabel Waknitz, and ShyAnn Welch.
