Holiday Concert by Local Hill Country Vocalist, Lee Colee’

Two performances, December 30th and New Year's Eve, of the sixth annual holiday concert by singer, Lee Colee-Atnip will be held at the Wimberley Players Theatre in Wimberley, Texas.
“How Can I Keep From Singing?” That is what Wimberley vocalist Lee Colee’ is asking when you talk to her about the upcoming holiday season. It is also the title of her newest concert series to be presented at the new Wimberley Players’ Theatre in Wimberley on December 30th and 31st. Both concerts start at 8 PM with a New Year’s Eve Buffet being served before the December 31st curtain.

This will be the sixth concert Colee’ has presented in Wimberley, co-produced by The Wimberley Players. “I am really looking forward to this one especially because I’ll be working with one of the best musicians in the country, Suzanne Daniels, at the piano. I will be sharing some great new songs, some special musical memories and just presenting some gorgeous music in an intimate and beautiful venue.” Colee’ as always has a few surprises in mind as well.

A vocalist with national credits in musical theatre, opera, voice overs, recording, cabaret and teaching and directing, Lee Colee’ and her husband, Ray Atnip have made Wimberley their home for the past six years. After setting up a private voice studio and small business she decided to offer a New Year’s Eve alternative celebration to local residents and to the surrounding area.

Since settling in the Hill Country, Lee Colee’ has directed and produced over 25 theatre and cabaret productions and appeared in Austin last year with Esther’s Follies. Many theatre patrons remember her performance as Lizzie in a recent production of 110 in the Shade in which Austin American Statesman entertainment editor, Michael Barnes stated, “Firecracker Colee’-Atnip played her to near perfection with a voice that could bless any Rodgers and Hammerstein style musical with a fine attention to psychological detail.”

Tickets for “How Can I Keep From Singing?” can be purchased at the Wimberley Players Box Office by calling 512/847-0575. Ticket price for the December 30th concert is $20; the December 31st performance, including a buffet, is $40.

The Wimberley Players Theatre is located at 450 Old Kyle Road in Wimberley, Texas, just off the Square.
