She Sure Sings Pretty For a Guy

At the end of the traditional “12 Days of Christmas,” you’re just left with a whole bunch of stupid birds you have to feed and a “true love” (read: stalker) you probably want to dump. This year, try a new approach — and make the holidays a little more fabulous — when the 12 Divas of Christmas join the quarter-century-old Heartland Men’s Chorus to create a naughty brand of Christmas cheer. Channeling a dozen legendary divas, from Marilyn Monroe to Judy Garland to Tina Turner, impersonator Christopher Peterson takes his performances a step further than the average drag queen by crooning his own tunes. Shows start tonight and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 4 p.m. at the Folly Theater (300 West 12th Street). Tickets range from $15 to $30. See hmckc.org or call 816-931-3338.— Angela Lutz
