‘TIS THE SEASON

Newcc

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.
