Women’s Chorus caroles the night away
Christmastime is a season of believing — in everything from Santa to finding a parking space at the mall — so the Women’s Chorus of Dallas naturally calls its holiday concert at the new City Performance Hall Believe. Guest vocalist Aubree-Anna, pictured, will add a jazzy touch to traditional songs, including “Carol of the Bells” and “How Great Our Joy.” The concert officially starts at 7 p.m., but there will be live entertainment in the lobby beginning at 6:30, so feel free to come early.
Queer literary readings get a little dirty
Queer performer Lillith Grey is expanding the scope of her reach with a recently instituted series called Dirty Panties: A Queer Erotica Reading. Local poets, writers, performers and the like gather about once a month at Ver Les Dallas for this literary exercise through sexy gay stuff. And it’s BYOB … we assume the second “B” stands for “bottle” and not, you know, something dirty.

‘Cirque Dreams’ … of sugar plums dancing
Believe it or not, Cirque du Soleil isn’t the only place to get your share of acrobatic feats. Cirque Dreams: Holidaze offers its own collection of aerialists, contortionists, clowns and jugglers … all with a holiday theme. If you think The Nutcracker is the only place toys and ornaments seem to come to life, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by this spectacle.
