The Musical Theater Project
A Christmas Cabaret
This delightful show, featuring Nancy Maier, Scott Posey, Bill Rudman and Sandra Simon, has become a perennial holiday favorite. The songs go as far back as 1916 and Irving Berlin’s “Santa Claus” (“You’d better be good like a good baby should, or he will fly right by to another neighborhood”). And in addition to festive curiosities like that one, the stocking is filled with treats for young and old including “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas,” “Winter Wonderland,” “White Christmas,” “Silver Bells,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and even “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” Last year’s performances sold out, so buy your tickets early. www.musicaltheaterproject.org

with Doug Wood, Tara Hanish and Darren Frate
Cellocentric is an innovative instrumental group blending acoustic guitar (Doug Wood), cello (Tara Hanish), and electric bass (Darren Frate) into a fusion of classical, new age, jazz, pop and rock styles. Cellocentric is the brainchild of guitarist Doug Wood, featuring Doug's music with contributions from cellist Tara Hanish and bass player Darren Frate. The music combines Doug's fingerstylings on guitar with the classical infusions and hints of world and jazz. Doug has a long history of touring and performing as a solo artist and in collaboration with other artists. His song "Cat Dance" was featured during the Late Night Show With David Letterman. He has toured with Eclectica, featuring five-time Grammy-winning dummer Roy “Futureman” Wooten and electric violinist Tracy Silverman, and he has opened. for artists like Paula Cole, Beppe Gambetta, California Guitar Trio, Aimee Mann, and G-Love and Special Sauce.
