This is the 12th year for a Christmas show by the troupe led by Darren Johnson.
Here is the troupe’s description of the show: “Maria Hinnendael shines with her rendition of “O Holy Night,’ Angela Thielke-Zuidmulder blends traditional and contemporary with a soulful ‘What Child is This,’ Shelly Johnson is radiant with ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ and Darren Johnson will kick off the show with Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s ‘Christmas in the Air’.”
The band includes Barb Hinnendael on keyboard (featured in The Carpenters’ “Merry Christmas Darling”), Jeff Hinnendael on guitar, Ryan Sette on bass, Cody Borley on drums, Alicia Michelle on violin (featured in “O Come O Come Emanuel”) and Kevin Van Ess on saxophone and clarinet (featured in “Jingle Bell Rock”).
Other Christmas include “The Christmas Song,” “Mary Did You Know,” “Mele Kalikimaka,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and Daddy D’s traditional closer “The Hallelujah Chorus.”
Mixed in are comical tunes and comedy bits.
