What made you want to be a part of the cabaret?
I’m super excited to be performing with my best friends and band mates the wild bbs as the jingle belles this holiday season! I also saw Tom’s pervious cab Fin and Friends and was blown away by the way he put it all together.

What’s your favourite part of the holiday season?
I really love the sense of community around the holidays. Everyone seems to want to spread joy and love to each other. If we all acted this way throughout the year maybe there would be a lot less hate in this world.

What’s your favourite Christmas song?

Santa clause got stuck in my chimney. I mean Ella Fitzgerald, sexual innuendos, Christmas, what more do you need?

Why should everyone come to see the show?

It’s going to be so so fun, with unbelievable local talent. It’s just going to be a great place to feel good and start the holiday’s off!

Some of Julia’s favourite credits include Sarah Brown in Guys and Dolls (SCC Theatre), Kaa the snake in Jungle Book Live (Beaches Turks and Caicos), Evil Stepsister in Cinderella (Al Quasba Theatre), and Amy March in Little Women (SCC Theatre). She is extremely proud to be performing alongside the talented cast of ‘Twas the Cab’ Before Christmas. 

What made you want to be involved in the cabaret?

I love the spirit of Christmas first and foremost. I also had the pleasure to see one of Tom’s recent cabaret’s and thought to myself “I would love to be up there with this awesome group”. So I was very happy when Tom asked me to get involved.

What’s your favourite part of the holiday season?

I love getting together with family around the holidays. Everyone seems to be so happy and filled with love for one another. That and cookies!

What’s your favourite Christmas song?

My favourite Christmas song is Santa Claus is Coming to Town. I was lucky enough to sing it in my college Christmas show, but not lucky enough to have a kickline behind me as requested.

Why should everyone come see the show?

This cast is phenomenal. There is something for everyone in this show. You are sure to be entertained!
