Celebrate the joy of the season with Quality Hill Playhouse’s annual holiday cabaret, CHRISTMAS IN SONG. This intimate revue featuring the theatre’s signature blend of sacred and secular favorites is one of Kansas City’s most cherished holiday traditions. From gospel (“More Than Wonderful”, “Go Tell It On The Mountain”) to contemporary (“Mary, Did You Know?”, “Grown Up Christmas List”) to classical (“Ave Maria”, “O Holy Night”), the performance features something for everyone and is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the holiday season.
Kansas City native Matt Leisy, who most recently appeared in the international tour of PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, returns to his hometown for this year’s production, his 4th Christmas at The Q. Lindsey McKee, a classically trained Soprano equally at home on an opera stage or in the symphony concert hall, will be appearing in her 10th holiday performance on the Playhouse stage. LeShea Wright, a jazz artist who has recorded background vocals with Grammy-nominated singers, made her professional singing debut in CHRISTMAS IN SONG and is always thrilled to return to it. Producing Artistic Director J. Kent Barnhart, the theatre’s founder and visionary, rounds out the cast as pianist, vocalist, and emcee.
Kansas City’s Home of the American Songbook welcomes you Home for the Holidays with CHRISTMAS IN SONG, previously heralded as “arresting,” “impressive,” “remarkable” (KC Star), and the “best Christmas show in town” (The Pitch)!
