Fasten your stockings and grab your mistletoe, it's time for a LipsInc! holiday celebration. This yuletide season, Idaho's first professional female impersonation troupe is putting on The Nutcrackers. This is not your standard holiday fare; it's a spectacular X-mas presentation rife with music and dance, comedy, big makeup, big hair and even bigger costumes.

For this show, the three main divas--Martini, Brenda and Victoria--are adding a fourth calling bird to the stage, guest star Nikoa Mak, the winner of this year's LipsInc! Idol competition.

These glittering ladies are going to deck the halls of the Balcony Club with song and dance, including hilarious holiday numbers, lots of laugh-out-loud jokes and their decadent, frilly gowns. It's sure to be as fun as a ride on a one-horse open sleigh.

LipsInc! has been doing drag performance for nearly 15 years. Producer Doug Flanders, a member of the troupe, is a staple of Boise's gay community and has actively participated in shows and events that help fund AIDS-related programs and LGBT scholarships. November's LipsInc! Idol event alone raised $4,000 for LGBT-related causes.
