Dust off your tacky sweater or vest, corral the kids, and bring your holiday spirit to the RMTC Cabaret Theatre for Red Mountain Theatre Company’s Holiday Spectacular, December 6-22. The best of Birmingham professionals tag team with the dynamic RMTC Conservatory to cook up a batch of sweet tunes and savory performances.
Spain Park Senior and RMTC Conservatory student Kaylee Hallmon will be delivering a face-kicking performance in Holiday Spectacular. In her only second year as a member of the group, she has made quite an impact with RMTC since joining. Her time with the Conservatory has been exhausting, but also one of the most rewarding experiences she’s ever had. “The amount of professionalism that is taught and expected from every Conservatory student is very unique to the program. Keith (Cromwell, RMTC Executive Director) is a fantastic director and the program truly trains young adults as young adults. The fact that it is a community program allows for great depth and diversity. It allows students to have a well-rounded theatre program even if their school doesn’t offer one,” Hallmon emphatically stated.
Kaylee’s drive and passion to be the very best that she can be will serve her well in her next phase of life, college. She looks forward to studying musical theatre or pre-law. Whatever direction she takes, the lessons from the RMTC Conservatory will follow her. She noted, “Regardless of your career path, the Conservatory trains young adults to succeed in many manners of life. The amount of professionalism, responsibility, and acceptance of change one earns is truly unmatched. I will always be grateful for that.”
Holiday Spectacular is a very special time for RMTC Conservatory students. It’s an opportunity for these young performers to showcase their talents alongside marvelous, professional performers. This will be Kaylee’s last time to grace the RMTC stage for this particular performance. Although this is only her second Holiday Spectacular, for Hallmon it resonates with her on so many levels, “It’s the best production I have ever worked on. This is my favorite time of the year and I absolutely love holiday music. It’s a feel-good experience for everybody and if I can put a smile on at least one person’s face, I’ve done something right.”
Kaylee and RMTC will be ringing those sleigh bells for you to stop by and visit. Join the party today!
