Santa Baby


Boisean Lauriel Loyst, comedienne and cabaret crooner, is returning to the stage for a two-performance run of Santa Baby, her follow-up to October's Broadway Baby Wannabe and November's The Spice of Life.

A 15-year cruise ship veteran, Loyst has also tried her hand at theme park performances and the New York cabaret circuit.

Loyst's flair for the fantastic is evident with every sequined step she takes, and this time, she's ready to put her own spin on Christmas cheer. Santa Baby will feature Loyst performing a number of Christmas favorites. Audience members can expect to be fully involved as Loyst sashays between the tables and the stage.

The El Korah Shrine Temple will be offering what Loyst calls "an amazing" buffet during the show. And while Loyst admits that the venue may be untraditional, she adds that her father is a Shriner and she loves "the good work the Shriners do."

Friday, Dec. 4, and Friday, Dec. 11, 6:15 p.m. dinner, 7 p.m.-9 p.m. show, $15 show, $30 show and dinner, El Korah Shrine Temple, 1118 W. Idaho, 208-939-8218,
