John Baldino and Erin Canedy have performed in venues from New York to Florida, in shows such as Fiddler on the Roof and the local church's Sunday choir.

But for all they have done and all they have seen over the years, they're ecstatic for their upcoming Our Christmas Cabaret.

We are so excited to be back on stage in our hometown, Baldino said. Erin and I got our start here and grew up here. It's a great way to celebrate Christmas with our friends, family and neighbors.

Canedy and Baldino make up John & Erin Cabaret Productions, a theatrical production company that provides cabaret-style shows for various functions.

Our Christmas Cabaret, set for tomorrow night at Trinity Church in Carbondale, will showcase traditional and nontraditional Christmas tunes.

Local professionals Jonathan Alunni and Jenna Simonetti as well as the Ballroom ONE dancers will perform, and Linda Houck will direct the music.

The holiday spirit will roll right along at the Mauch Chunk Opera House this weekend, first with a performance from local favorites Cabinet and Mike Mizwinski.

The musicians are no strangers to one another, having performed together over the years, and this time they're bringing a holiday show.

Tomorrow night, the Craig Thatcher Band Rockin' Christmas show will take the stage. The show is a release event for the band's latest album, Passion, Spirit & Strings. The group puts a rock twist on Christmas traditionals.
