Performers Emma Bispham (Everyman Company 2018), Gillian Hardie, Kelly Sweeney and Kenny Thompson, will perform musical numbers and festive favourites, led by George Francis on piano, with musicians Parabhen Lad and Vidar Norheim on bass and percussion. The evening will feature some Christmas classics alongside the likes of Stephen Sondheim, Billy Joel, Shaina Taub and Joni Mitchell.

Of the evening, Francis said, “I’ve always been inspired by the cabaret clubs of New York, and I hope we can recreate that for you here in Liverpool. We’re working in a reconfigured set up with a live band, four incredible local performers…It’s been a tough year for artists across the UK, so I hope you’re able to join us in celebrating the joy of live music, Christmas and being safely together in one place.”

The Everyman Christmas Cabaret will run alongside a Covid-safe production of A Christmas Carol in the Playhouse. Adapted by Patrick Barlow and directed by Gemma Bodinetz, the show will be Bodinetz’s final production after 17 years as artistic director at the Playhouse.
