Exclusive picture special and preview of Cromers end of the pier festive spectacular.
A Yule Tide combination of comedy, music, song and dance is set to take Cromer by storm over the Christmas holidays.
A blend of familiar classics, including White Christmas and a Sister Act song promise to set the stage alite with some dazzling costumes and colourful stage sets.
The cast is headed by Norfolk entertainer Olly Day, in his fifth season in the show, his unique all round style sees him dance, banter and sing with added split timing comedy. Olly is delighted to be back and said the venue was home from home.
He added: “There’s a certain magic about the show that gels together when a great team like this get together.”
Also making a fifth appearance since the Christmas show began in 2005 is Cromer-based singer Eddie Bushell. Eddie is on top form and seems to creatively flourish with each show.
“It’s fantastic that the theatre is on my door step” explained Eddie “It means I can spend Christmas day with my daughters Lexi, three, and baby Frankie, who is just 12 weeks.”
They are joined by comedian and illusionist Martyn James, who is also a musician and comic. The glamour is added by dynamic singer, Jane Watkins who has just returned from a tour of Holland and Belgium performing as Dusty Springfield, and Cilla Black in the ‘British Pop Invasion’ show.
The dancers this year have certainly added some superb routines, including the ‘Hot Hot’ Hawaiian dance. The show is also joined by children and a youth choir from Marlene’s School of Dance in Cromer.
Nigel Hogg, from the summer show, is musical director.
