MANCHESTER, NH — Dive In Productions will be debuting their new cabaret series in partnership with Jupiter Hall in Manchester on December 14. Singers from around New England will be ringing in the holidays with hits from musical theater and film as well as family favorites. The concert will feature accomplished music director Tim Goss on the piano and Miles Ahlstrom on bass.
Dive In to the Holidays marks the first of a series of themed cabarets between Dive In Productions and Jupiter Hall. Dive In’s Executive Director Marina Altschiller is “thrilled to begin this partnership. Jupiter Hall encapsulates everything we love about making art in New Hampshire. It highlights local artists and really allows new companies to grow and explore.”
Dive In to the Holidays will feature performers from Dive In’s recent productions of Dogfight and Little Shop of Horrors as well as some new faces. “We’ve been so lucky getting to work with performers from all around the state as well as the greater New England area. We really want to build a community where everyone feels welcome to participate,” states Altschiller.
Upcoming cabaret themes include Powerhouse Women and a Miscast concert where performers will have the chance to sing roles they’d normally not be cast in.
Those who would like to learn more about the event may contact Katie Bérubé at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 603-289-4661.

Meet the Cast of “Dive Into the Holidays Cabaret”
Favorite Holiday Tradition: “My favorite holiday traditions are Christmas movie binges with my fiancé and the annual construction of a gingerbread village with my brothers. Both involve a viewing of the classic hit film The Leprechauns’ Christmas Gold so you can’t go wrong.”
Favorite Holiday Tradition: “My favorite holiday tradition is putting up our Christmas decorations. It’s super nice to watch our house transform into a cozy shelter from the cold outside! (I also like singing Christmas carols at the top of my lungs, but I do that for the rest of the year anyway)”
Favorite Holiday Tradition: “1. Finding out how much beautiful Eggnog I can drink without puking 2. Christmas Eve viewing of “Elf” with Chinese Food and siblings and parents.”
Favorite Holiday Tradition: “Decorating the Christmas tree with my family!”
Favorite Holiday Tradition: “Big dinners”
Favorite Holiday Tradition: “Chinese food on Christmas Eve, and a Christmas morning scavenger hunt. The scavenger hunt my mom does rhyming riddles for clues and my dad does the ‘print work’ for all the cards, and the ‘hunt’ usually includes some cash along the way for me and my two younger brothers. Yes, we are all in our twenties… you can still do scavenger hunts in your twenties, right?”
