This holiday season you will have the opportunity to receive a gift so grand that Santa and his elves couldn’t make in their workshop. Red Mountain Theatre Company is offering you the gift of gut-busting, tear-jerking entertainment with their annual Holiday Spectacular, December 6-22 at the RMTC Cabaret Theatre. The best of Birmingham professionals team up with the phenomenal RMTC Conservatory to offer your favorite holiday tunes and festivities “yule” never forget.to
Mountain Brook Junior and 10th-year RMTC Conservatory student Julia Ferreira will be rocking the stage in this wonderful production. RMTC has had the pleasure of Julia’s involvement since she was the age of six. “I first started in theatre because one of my best friends in elementary school participated in RMTC’s summer camps. She enjoyed it very much, so I decided to join her for one summer. I fell in love with it and I continued to attend each year,” Ferreira noted.
Throughout her time at RMTC, Julia has had the chance to improve on her skills in singing, dancing, acting, and time management. Her hard work through these challenges has led to many successes and rewards. The most valuable reward has been the family that she has created within the organization. Ferreira reflected, “I practically grew up in the company. If I wasn’t at home, I was raised by Keith Cromwell (RMTC Executive Director) and the rest of the amazing staff of RMTC. My best friends have also journeyed through the program with me and have been a part of my second family.”
When it comes to Holiday Spectacular, it is a special production for Julia filled with memories…even some funny and unfortunate ones. “Last year, I had the honor of performing in the Frosty suit for a medley dedicated to holiday cartoons. In a previous number, I badly twisted my ankle and could not perform for the rest of the evening. Keith (Cromwell) quickly stepped in and went on in my place. He, of course, put on a brilliant performance,” Ferreira humorously recalled.
As the last takeaway, she chimed in with, “Holiday Spectacular is special because there are moments of laughter, tears, and overall joy. No matter what faith you practice, the ideas of a miracle and having hope resonate throughout the audience. All I wish is for audience members to be entertained and leave our theatre happy and full of holiday spirit. Hopefully, newcomers will create a new holiday tradition for their family and friends.”
Whether it’s eight crazy nights, a partridge in a pear tree, or a Festivus miracle…it’s good times for all.
