For three nights, classic Christmas music will be presented cabaret-style at the Lucas Theatre.
Vocalists Roger Moss, Trae Gurley, Natasha Drena and Cat Yates will sing holiday tunes with accompaniment from Kim Steiner on piano.
The audience will be seated on the Lucas stage for a cozy, intimate concert that is suitable for all ages.
"There is a small script written by Al Harris that incorporates us coming over to Roger's house for a holiday gathering," Gurley says. "There is some banter in between the songs."
"It's like the old Bing Crosby or Perry Como Christmas specials, where the host is standing by an overstuffed chair and the doorbell rings," Moss says.
"A guest comes in and they sing a song together.
"We'll be doing some sing-alongs, as well," he says. "It's a very family-friendly show. We invite people to bring their whole families."
Only 100 seats will be available for each of the three concerts. Seating will begin at 6:30 p.m., with the show starting at 7 p.m.
After purchasing a ticket at the box office, patrons enter via the backstage door.
Patrons are welcome to bring a bottle of wine to enjoy while listening, but a $10 corkage fee will apply.
Gurley has done a Broadway cabaret and a few other cabaret shows at the Lucas.
"The audience is the backdrop for us," he says.
"All of the tables and chairs are set up on stage," he says. "It's like theater-in-the-round or an old speakeasy club.
"It's a great experience for everyone," Gurley says. "Every actor or singer loves to do this."
The show allows the singers to sing some of their own favorite songs.
"I love all the classics: 'White Christmas,' 'The Most Wonderful Time of the Year,'" Gurley says. "I love the old-school Christmas songs."
"It's going to be a really good mix of songs," Moss says, "We'll do everything from 'I'll Be Home for Christmas' to 'O Holy Night.' I'm even doing a spiritual."
The show would be a wonderful surprise early Christmas gift, Gurley says.
"Come see this, especially if you haven't come to one before," he says. "It's a great opportunity to get dressed up nice and go see a show.
"There's a bar there to buy drinks. The show is very audience interactive. It's like a variety show where the fourth wall comes down so we know the audience is there," he says.
"With every cabaret show we've done, we're having a good time and letting the audience in on it."
"There's going to be a little bit of everything," Moss says. "We're doing it the week when family is starting to come into town for Christmas. It's a really nice evening for the whole family."
