Rubies in the Snow
The Ruby Dolls celebrate the festive time of year with our entertaining and gently subversive Christmas cabaret. Expect an eclectic soundtrack including all your Christmas favourites in four part harmony as well as more unconventional choices from Joni Mitchell to Metallica. Santa will inevitably get stuck up T Doll’s chimney and Susie will almost definitely try and re-brand it as Halloween. But don’t worry, the rest of us, and the audience, just won’t let her… Join us for a kiss under the mistletoe and a night of Yuletide fun!
