The Kinsey Sicks are back! America's Favorite (and only) Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet returns home to NCTC for the holidays. In this bawdy and blasphemous musical, Angel, Winnie, Trixie, and Trampolina are trying to sell off their manger – yes, that manger – before it's foreclosed upon. Crises arise, secrets are revealed, Jewish-Gentile tensions surface, and mayhem ensues – all in glorious four-part harmony.

Starry NightS at nCTC

Join us pre-show Thursday nights from 7-7:50pm for a holiday craft project led by the fabulous Ruby Vixen! We'll provide all the tools you need to create the star or snowflake of your dreams. Guests can either take their holiday ornament home or use it to decorate the NCTC lobby.


Ruby is the alter-ego of Bay Area artist, singer, and costume designer Tina Sogliuzzo. When she's not on stage with her band Velvetta she can be found creating costumes for local performers and productions including NCTC's The Confession of Lilly Dare.

Book your tickets for Dec 8, 15, 22, 29.
