For the last hours of 2011, why not don your most dapper evening attire, grab your best gal or guy, and make like a character from a Noël Coward play? Soak up jazz and ragtime standards, and new songs, too, at the New Year's Eve Cabaret
at Quality Hill Playhouse (303 West 10th Street, 816-421-1700). Songbird Molly Hammer, bassist Brian Wilson and piano impresario J. Kent Barnhart team up to ring in 2012 with smooth and sultry versions of traditional and modern fare. The first show is at 6:30 p.m. A later show at 10:30 includes a champagne toast at the witching hour. Tickets cost $38, with a $3 discount for seniors. Purchase them online at qualityhillplayhouse.com
