The festive season is approaching and the place to be to enjoy the biggest party in town is happening twenty-one times over at the Babbacombe Theatre! The mood will be right, and the spirit of goodwill will abound with this super sparkling family show, Step into Christmas.
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 we anticipate 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. ‘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.
Audience participation is encouraged and as this show is for all ages it’s a great opportunity 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. This show has enough love to share with sufficient joy to go around. So put your best foot forward and step on down to see what promises to be one of the best shows in the region this Christmas at the Babbacombe Theatre.
