What made you want to be involved in the cabaret?

I’ve been naughty all year long and need a chance to redeem myself; or it’s coal for me from Saint Nick.

What’s your favourite part of the holiday season?

Christmas to me is all about singing silly songs and consuming too many calories. So libations are accepted throughout the performance.

What’s your favourite Christmas song?

“Merry Christmas Darling” by the Carpenters. This sad melancholy song perfectly represents the loved ones we don’t get to see this holiday season.

Why should everyone come see the show?

We are really tight with Santa so I wouldn’t risk missing this show!!!

Anything else we should know? 

Wanna know who Santa’s favourite singer is?!? Why, Elf-is Presley of course!!! (Dad joke for the WIN).
