This Christmas, Liverpool’s Everyman Theatre will be transformed into a lively cabaret space for two weeks of performance, songs and merriment, featuring local organisations and artists in the theatre’s main space.
Split over two weeks from 10-24 December, the Everyman will showcase the talents of Liverpool through evenings of song and performance, in an Everyman auditorium designed with cabaret tables and intimate, socially distanced performances in mind.
From 10-12 December, Everyman & Friends celebrates the rich tapestry of independent arts organisations from across Liverpool, and the diversity of theatre in the city.
Everyman & Friends features performances from Everyman spoken word regulars A Lovely Word, the return of the sensational burlesque show DisabiliTease – hosted by Little Peaches and Arielle Firecracker, music from choir Sense of Sound and some thoroughly entertaining vulgarity from clowns Ugly Bucket Theatre Company.
In the final week before Christmas (17-24 December), musical director George Francis (Fiddler on the Roof, Paint Your Wagon, Amelie, Miracle on 34th Street: The Musical) curates an evening of songs and performance in The Everyman Christmas Cabaret, as audiences are taken on a music theatre journey from Hope Street, to an underground cabaret bar at the heart of New York.
Emma Bispham (Everyman Company 2018), Gillian Hardie, Kelly Sweeney and Kenny Thompson, will perform musical numbers and festive favourites, led by George Francis (piano) and musicians Parabhen Lad (bass) and Vidar Norheim (percussion). Expect songs from the likes of Stephen Sondheim, Billy Joel, Shaina Taub, Joni Mitchell and some Christmas classics to put you in the festive spirit.
Audiences attending either show at the Everyman will receive up-to-date advice in advance of their visit on safety measures in place, to ensure conditions are as Covid-safe as possible, in line with Government recommendations. A money back guarantee will be offered if performances are cancelled.
If an audience member is unwell, they can receive a full refund up until 11am on the day of the performance they are booked to attend.
Tickets for Everyman & Friends and The Everyman Christmas Cabaret are on sale from 12pm on Thursday 19 November. For more information and to book visit: https://www.everymanplayhouse.com/whats-on/the-everyman-christmas-cabaret
