Choir and Comedy to Celebrate Christmas at The Meteor

Christmas is coming to The Meteor with two creative and interactive holiday events; Choir with Benefits and The Improv Show Before Christmas!

Kicking off the Christmas events, local Hamilton talent Brooke Baker will be leading a choir of audience members in a merry carol for Choir with Benefits: Tron City Christmas Sing on Wednesday 18 December.

Choir with Benefits invite the whole audience to accompany them in a carol and celebrate Christmas, no matter what level of singing experience they have. A free event for all ages, this is a one-of-a-kind, festive, music making and community building experience not to be missed!

“The holidays are always bringing people together and that is exactly what Choir with Benefits will do” says Meteor staff member Emily Costello.

“It’s truly a group of strangers who come together and share in the Christmas spirit by singing carols in an impromptu choir.”

The Improv Show Before Christmas will take the stage the following night on Thursday 19 December. An improv comedy event, six comedians will take the stage led by Ross McLeod and, with the help of audience suggestions, will give their spin on classic Christmas stories. These collaborative and festive performances are guaranteed to fill the audience with a sense of community and holiday cheer.

“Remember that feeling of having a present under the tree but not knowing what was inside? The Improv Show Before Christmas gives you that feeling on stage” says Ross McLeod. “Will it be an iPhone or will it be socks?”

Choir with Benefits Tron City Christmas Sing is a free event running at The Meteor at 7pm on 18 December.
The Improv Show Before Christmas is running at 7pm on 19 December, tickets cost $10.
