More Information on Christmas Cabaret
West Yorkshire Playhouse’s alternative festive offering, Christmas Cabaret is a raucous, raunchy and rambunctious celebration of the best cabaret artists from across the UK.
We’ll invite our favourite musicians, live artists, drag acts, comedians, magicians and tricksters to take over the Courtyard Theatre and go wild for three December nights full of titillation, provocation and entertainment.
Your host for the evening will be Miss Behave, one of the founding members of Olivier Award Winning La Clique and La Soirée. A cocktail of quick wit, high camp, saucy curves and costumes – she is one of the last surviving female swordswallowers.
Please note that Miss Behave is unable to perform due to injury. She will be replaced as host of the Christmas Cabaret by the brilliant AJ James.
Come in from the cold and join us for a Christmas party with a difference.
