A Very Tamarie Christmas

Anything can happen in the madcap, imaginative world of Tamarie Cooper, who tackles the excesses of the holiday spirit during her annual original summer musical extravaganza, A Very Tamarie Christmas. Cooper says: “If you’re more of a humbug, have no fear: A Very Tamarie Christmas takes a satirical stab at many different holiday traditions. This show is certainly no wholesome Hallmark experience. It’s an over-the-top, ridiculous, lewd, silly romp through our holiday calendar.”

The show is an annual favorite with Houstonians, with a large fan base. Written by Tamarie Cooper, Patrick Reynolds and friends, Tamarie Christmas skewers all the holidays you know — Armistice Day, President’s Day, Arbor Day, Flag Day, Mother’s Day, Secretary’s Day — and some you’ve never heard of, such as Great-Uncle’s Day. All this merry mayhem is supported by a live band.
