As our beloved Mame says, “haul out the holly!” Now in its ninth-annual production, TMTP knows why audiences keep coming back to A Christmas Cabaret: the songs.
This show mixes well-known classics and hidden gems, touching on the history of all of them in a way only TMTP can. What else should audiences expect? It wouldn’t be a Christmas concert without a few sing-alongs!
Vocalist Sandra Simon says, “it’s the nostalgia that hooks me. For people of my age – the 1960s boomer babies – these are the songs I grew up hearing. We all had Christmas traditions when we were young. I believe our cabaret can become a new tradition for families – and for many, it already is.” Joining Simon and new to A Christmas Cabaret is vocalist Scott Posey. TMTP audiences will remember Posey from last season’s “Behind the Musical: Fiddler on the Roof.”
And there’s something about a cabaret setting that’s perfect for the holiday season. Whether you’re snuggled in the cozy Studio Theater at Stocker Arts Center (December 12 & 13) or enjoying a festive dinner and libations at Nighttown (December 14, 16 & 17), the intimacy creates a wonderful bond between audience and performers.
