The all-male, all-volunteer comedy fundraising troupe, the Austin Babtist Women, will ring in the holidays with “A Very Pink Christmas” on Sunday, December 15th. Benefiting the Breast Cancer Resource Center, the free holiday variety show takes the stage at Bout Time 2, 6607 I-35 North in Austin, beginning at 7 pm.
This year’s Holiday Show features special guest entertainers from across the state, along with the Austin Babtist Women’s signature brand of holiday hilarity. Free burgers will be served from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., followed at 7 p.m. with the performance.
Created in 1986, the Austin Babtist Women have become an incredibly-respected charitable force, performing throughout the nation to raise money for HIV/AIDS, breast cancer and other charitable causes. The troupe of five male actors take-on the personas of “little old church ladies” and stage elaborately choreographed, side-splitting routines – raising more than $7 million dollars along the way for regional and national non-profit organizations.
The Austin Babtist Women were originally created as a one-time charity performance, but demand for their shows has led to an almost-three-decade run of fundraising. The troupe has performed on Broadway and in Las Vegas – and major cities coast-to-coast – continues to headline major events across the nation and produces four signature shows locally each year to benefit Central Texas charities.
