Our Christmas 2012 show explodes onto stage on 15th November and runs until 6th January 2013.
Blackpool’s legendary Funny Girls will be sprinkling a little magic and mistletoe over their famous front doors this week, as they jingle all the way to their most magical and fantastical Christmas Show ever.
The all new Funny Girls Christmas Spectacular Show for 2012 opens from this Thursday November 15th and will see the venue transformed into an enchanted winter wonderland where favourite Christmas classics, fantastical fairy tales, magical myths and favourite bedtime stories come spectacularly to life with the Funny Girls wickedly funny humour and breath-taking dance routines.
This years ‘Once Upon Time’ Christmas Show theme at Funny Girls blends the story book worlds of fairy tale folklore, classic children’s literature, legends and epic tales of romance, adventure and fantasy. The new show wonderfully weaves everyone’s favourite characters, heroes and villains with Christmas holiday sing a long classics through an evening of incredible live entertainment.
Philip Holmes, Creative Director at Funny Girls is proud to present one of the most glittering and stunning Christmas productions the venue has ever staged:
“This years Christmas show is more spectacular than ever before , as we felt that people needed that little bit of extra festive cheer, sparkle, twinkle and jingly jolly morale boost during the recession, so we have created a visually stunning, full on feel good factor and enchanted experience that provides a colourful and fun filled escape from reality. We are also celebrating 18 years in show business this year, so we wanted to produce something truly special and memorable.
Due to the huge popularity of the Funny Girls Christmas Show, we have opened a week early to cater for the demand in bookings and have created a world of wow and wonder on stage. The riveting musical numbers, sheer spectacle of the scenic sets and simply stunning costumes of the Funny Girls cast, all combine to create a place of unrivalled entertainment, where dreams can come true with a good laugh or two!
The casts gorgeous and elaborate costumes are the most sumptuous, lavish and elegant ever designed and created for a Funny Girls Show. The Funny Girls performers evoke the beautiful belle of the ball ‘Happy Ever After’ theme and in a very special musical number, they all look magnificent and resplendent as they float and glide across the stage in their dramatic Marie Antoinette inspired gowns, rococo bustles, lace corsets and romantic ruffles.
It is a veritable fairy tale fantasy fashion and musical extravaganza, so be prepared to see some wild and wonderful creations with the amazing costumes this season.
The stage sets are truly mesmerising and I can reveal in one musical scene, we will transport the audience into a ‘ye olde worlde’ Christmas cottage snow scene that would put Charles Dickens to shame!
Our talented Funny Girls performers have introduced five brand new routines in the Christmas Show, showcasing their signature eye high kicks and incredible precision dance style, in some of the most challenging and eye popping numbers ever conceived. Cherished favourite songs of Christmas are enhanced by the infusion of the Funny Girls razor sharp wit and cheeky humour, inviting the audience to experience the wonder of Funny Girls in a whole new way. The new Christmas Spectacular show is a perfect night out to celebrate over Christmas with friends, family and loved ones, there is something for everyone to enjoy!
After serving a record breaking eighteen years at Funny Girls our glamorous hostess, DJ Zoe will surprise her legions of fans this year by playing her most unglamorous and downtrodden role yet in the side splitting finale, so it’s worth coming along just to see Zoe slumming it!”
Bookings are now being taken for VIP seats and booths for the Christmas Show, as well as group bookings, office, works and family parties that can include festive buffets or a three course festive dinner in Garbo’s restaurant.
