Unique treats

‘The Jinkx & DeLa Holiday Show’ 
Jinkx Monsoon and BenDeLaCreme — both “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alums — are bringing back their holiday show tour. Promising drag spectacle, sharp comedy, and a mix of favorite and new songs, these Christmas queens bring sweetness and spice to their all-ages holiday show. Dec. 21–24. $35 and up. Moore Theatre, Seattle 

The Midwinter Revels 
For its annual celebration of the winter solstice, Puget Sound Revels travels to the Mexico of the 1890s to present music, stories, dancing and singing in a combination of tradition and art. Dec. 17–21. $20–$36. Rialto Theater, Tacoma

Disney in Concert: Tim Burton’s ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ 
For most people, Halloween kicks off the holiday season that builds to a peak at Christmas. But for others, Halloween is the high point, and it’s all downhill from there. If your family prefers Jack Skellington to Old St. Nick, you’re not alone. Seattle Symphony is screening “The Nightmare Before Christmas” with dialogue, singing and effects, accompanied by a live orchestral performance of Danny Elfman’s earworm-riddled score. Dec. 1–4. $35–$105. Benaroya Hall, Seattle

An Inspirational Christmas With Elvis’ 
The Auburn Ave. Theater may be closed, but you don’t have to miss the Auburn tradition of Danny Vernon’s holiday Elvis illusion concert. Families can hear classic Elvis music along with some great traditional Christmas selections (including Elvis’ own), replete with The King’s famous pompadour. Dec. 8. $25. Green River College, Cascade Hall, Auburn

Memphis Belles: ‘Winter Wonderland 
Seasonal cheer without so much Christmas, the Memphis Belles’ “Winter Wonderland” concert will feature all kinds of beloved winter music, including “Sleigh Ride,” “Mele Kalikimaka,” “Let It Snow,” “My Favorite Things” and “Winter Wonderland.” Dec. 10. $23. Green River College, Cascade Hall, Auburn
