Christmas is Magical

Music, Magic and Mirth in all its guises is what ‘Christmas is…Magical’ promises this season at the Babbacombe Theatre. This family variety show promises spellbinding Illusions, comedic classics, hits of yesteryear and today, interspersed cleverly to deliver a show that has pace and will leave you wanting more.

An enormous hit with the Babbacombe Theatre audiences, this past two years has been Steve Laister. It is great to have him back again with even more side-splitting original humour that will make you laugh louder than ever. He is joined on stage by other artistes instantly recognisable to Babbacombe Theatre regulars, including International Illusionist Daniel Dean, a master of his craft who will not only amaze you, but leave you in wonder, as you ponder, “how did he do that?” Additionally, we welcome back the delightful Lindsey Collard, a talented actress and singing sensation, the effervescent Wayne ‘Champagne’ Martin who is literally up for anything to generate a laugh. You may be familiar too with our troupe of sassy dancers, Danze Magique, who execute wonderfully the highly acclaimed dance routines set by our choreographer, Sadie Oliver, set to the musical arrangements of the Musical Director, Pete Leonard.

Glitz and glamour come in all guises in this show of festive fun, with Disney favourites, Moana & Maui, dashing cavaliers and a host of heavenly angels. Look out though for the international travellers raising ‘a glass’ or ‘twelve’ of cheer, as they enjoy; just a little bit too much, of the Christmas Spirit!

Inspirational lighting, costume design, choreography and musical arrangements are without exception the icing on the Christmas cake in Christmas is…Magical.  After all, the theatre experience is never just about the performance.

Christmas wouldn’t be half as much fun without the obligatory ‘Singalong’ and this show promises some true yuletide favourites, with White Christmas, Drummer Boy, Jingle Bells & Santa Claus is Coming to Town. Albeit with some, movie masterpieces highlighted, as well as pop hits and comedic classics that feature the song writing talents of the late greats, Benny Hill and Victoria Wood, you are promised a bountiful punch of musical moments.

Another favourite and regular feature of our Christmas variety show is  special guest, Lily Laight, who is still only 15, but already a seasoned performer. She appeared with the original cast of Matilda on London’s West End, has appeared on TV in Doc Martin and in 2014 hit the headlines worldwide when the movie, Love Rosie went on release. Lily has been performing at this venue since she was only 8 and this show will mark her eleventh production on the Babbacombe boards!

Last but by no means least, let us remind you that as well as evening performances, there are matinees too. Boxing Day and New Year’s Day prove very popular, so we do advise you to consider booking now.
