Out & About: Christmas Celebrations

The Medford Armory is transformed into a winter wonderland this weekend and characters from last year’s hit show at the Oregon Cabaret Theatre are reuniting with a new show featuring some classic holiday songs.

Cabaret Theatre

The marvelous Wonderettes, featured in last summer’s hit show at the Oregon Cabaret Theatre, are back with a show jam-packed with beloved holiday tunes and plenty of surprises as well. It’s Christmas 1968, ten years after the Wonderettes graduated from Springfield High.

Betty Jean, Suzy, Cindy Lou and Missy have once again joined forces to create an entertaining holiday show and when Santa goes missing the girls must use their talent and creative ingenuity – plus some great holiday tunes – to save the holiday party. The Winter Wonderettes runs through new year’s eve. Contact the Oregon Cabaret Theatre for ticket and dinner reservation information.
