Friendswood Theater December shows include a holiday cabaret

It might be short-sleeved weather in Southeast Texas, but a holiday cabaret December 3-5 at the Purple Box Theater in Friendswood might get you humming “Let it Snow.”

We’ve got a lot of songs, a great mix of Christmas carols and some of the best Christmas carols, and some you’ve never heard before, like “White Christmas in Houston,” said Cathy Holbrook, founding artistic director of the group.

The two dozen singers who will be co-starring – solo, duet and group – include: Cindy Perkins, Meagan Allen, Steven Reeder, T’mar Bunch, Amy Morneau, Roxann Hales, Whitney Wyatt, Brandee Hake Sibley and Lisa Elle Anders.

The other singers are: Andrea Richards, Nathaniel Perez, Brandi Kiekel, Eryn Dorsey, Alec Wimmer, Sarah Zua, Nori Mobley Head, Teresa Mc, Annette Moody Forsythe, Ian Cross, Madie Cross, Jackie LaChance Was, Nicole Beeson Mayfield, Jacob Mayfield and Claire Mayfield.

Some of their selections will be “Sisters” from the movie “White Christmas”, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” and “All I want for Christmas is You”.

In addition, the show, which will take place at the 1309 W. Parkwood Theater, will feature “O Little Town of Bethlehem”, “O Holy Night” and “The First Noel”.

Among many others are “Santa Baby”, “What Christmas Means to Me” and “I want a hippo for Christmas”.

Holbrook ran the cabaret. Bunch is the musical director.

The Holiday Cabaret continues a series of recent popular reviews at Purple Box, with themes ranging from Disney to Halloween.

“We started the nightclubs when we reopened after the pandemic,” Holbrook said.

“It was mainly because everyone was looking for something to do, and musicals were too expensive back then because we couldn’t sell out COVID protocols,” she said. “We do cabarets every few months and we have fun with them. The public seems to really appreciate them.

“The performers learn the songs on their own, then we have two rehearsals; so the little time spent helps, and not having large groups together for several weeks is safer.

Tickets must be purchased online at

Spectators are required to wear masks when in the building. Other COVID protocols are listed on the group’s website.

Also in December, Purple Box’s Broadway Kids and Teens will present “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, The Musical” from December 10-12.

Free to the public, there will be an “Adult Improvisation Showcase” at 8:00 pm on December 15th. It is headed by Alec White.
