What made you want to be involved in the cabaret?
Getting back together with the It’s a Wonderful Life gang. Just wouldn’t feel like Christmas without those goons.
What’s your favourite part of the holiday season?
Christmas Eve at the Ferrante’s is full of Italian traditions. The feast of the 7 fishes, watching It’s a Wonderful Life…Watching George Bailey with Bailey’s in our Christmas PJs. Christmas is extra special with the addition of baby Ian.
What’s your favourite Christmas song?
Barbra Streisand’s “Jingle Bells?”…yes, Question Mark. If you haven’t heard it you’re seriously missing out.
Why should everyone come see the show?
To get in the Christmas spirit!! Yes, I said Christmas! How politically incorrect of me.
Anything else we should know?
Come see Emma singing Christmas Carols at the Christmas Market in the Distillery. Basically, I will be doing everything possible to be obnoxiously Christmassy! DIY presents (thanks Pinterest), baking up a storm, making mulled wine, and listening to Christmas records constantly.
