Tonight we’re going to see our friends at GMCLA perform their annual holiday performance, definitely one of our favorite holiday traditions.
The program tonight is called Swing, Santa, Swing! and the program description is:
Get on the A-Train for a rollicking, rhythmic holiday ride with standards, show-stopping production numbers and songs of the season to warm your heart. Jump-start your holiday spirit and become part of L.A.ís holiday tradition.
For anyone who has never had the pleasure of attending a GMCLA concert, they aren’t kidding when they say “show-stopping production numbers.” If you go to their concerts expecting to see the Gay Men’s Glee Club, you’re in for a big surprise. Yes, you’ll hear a stage full of hundreds of men (not all gay, in case you’re wondering) singing, but also a performance beyond “just a bunch of guys singing.”
Last year, they staged (for the last time) the popular “12 Days of Christmas” using almost 30 puppeteers and over 100 large foam puppets, “The Foamettes,” and black light (conceived of by the amazing Phil Hettema). Here is a behind-the-scenes look at becoming a Foamette from Kenlin. I’m totally excited to see what they have planned instead this year.
If you go to this concert, leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
