The company will perform show songs from, the Holiday Inn, from Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella, movie greats from the latest James Bond epic film, No Time to Die & Frozen, pop classics and seasonal favourites from across the decades featuring hits from Sir Elton John, Michael Bublé, The Weeknd, Carrie Underwood, The Spice Girls, Neil Diamond and Sir Tom Jones.
Regular headliners and Babbacombe favourites make a welcome return, comedian Andy Oakley is joined by special guest, ITV’s comedy impressionist Phil Lowen and ex Buck’s Fizz music maker Paul Fordham. Their wealth of experience and versatility is undoubtedly what makes them so popular with the venue’s audiences, just as it is anticipated new and merging talent will do too, with local musical and pantomime stars, Harriet Loveridge and Claire Waring who is making her debut on the Babbacombe boards.
Inspirational lighting, costume design, choreography and musical arrangements are without exception the icing on the cake in this show, after all the theatre experience is never about just the performance.
Sassy and sexy ‘Danze Fantastique’ compliments and adorns the stage with their wonderfully paced dance routines, choreographed by Lucy O’Neill with musical arrangements created by Musical Director, Pete Leonard.
Typically, like snowflakes, Christmas memories gather and dance. Make new memories with your family and friends, this year with what is not the traditional festive family outing. That’s usually to see a pantomime, however this production will raise your spirits, which is one of the defining qualities the season of goodwill should bring.
Modern and traditional elements are combined by the Director Colin Matthews as he continues to produce the theatre’s highly accredited shows that the venue is renowned for and as he extends his thanks to the shows sponsor Accounting 4 Everything, Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors from Paignton, he hopes that this all-new production, after a particularly difficult couple of years will be at the top of YOUR Christmas list?
Audience participation is encouraged and as this show is for all ages it’s a great opportunity for family and friends to step into the spirit of the festivities, as you are encouraged to revel in the music, magic & mirth.
Santa, Reindeers, Baubles and Chestnuts are all words we relate to Christmas, and we hope to embrace those sentiments as well as embrace the Peace and Love associated with this joyous time of year.
