I Love Music
**This event has been POSTPONED - please check website for details**
It is said that a good song stands the test of time, and that can be said about the 40 musical numbers featured in a new show for 2020, I Love Music.
You can expect to enjoy a fun-filled production that will take you on an inspirational musical journey, encapsulating all genres on the musical spectrum spanning five decades.
Enjoy pop classics from Rick Astley, Roy Orbison, Dionne Warwick, Gary Barlow, Clean Bandit, The Osmonds, Abba and Dua Lipa; Motown Classics from The Temptations, Aretha Franklin, The Shirelles & The Ronettes interspersed with some of the most favoured and popular songs from movie sound tracks which include, Monty Python's Life of Brian, Evita, You Only Live Twice, Prince of Egypt and Burlesque. Prepare to be starstruck too, with numbers from award winning musicals Honk, Matilda, Ghost and Hairspray, all performed by a cast of ten extremely talented vocalists, that know how to not only deliver a song but perform it with finesse.
"One good thing about Music, when it hits you – you feel no pain" Whilst this is a quote by Bob Marley, and relative to music specifically, it can also be said about the shows, host and compere, who can pack an almighty punch too; Andy Oakley.
Andy usually connects with the crowds by making them laugh, he is a versatile comedian, who can deliver a song as well as a joke. For some years he has been a firm favourite with Babbacombe audiences, whilst you will get a hint of his humour during I Love Music, it will be his vocal prowess, that impresses.
Other cast members that will be hitting the high notes are, celebrated entertainer, Dean Winters, dream girl, Lisa T. Jordan, Sami-Jane who is as adept at interpreting a pop hit as she is the most dramatic show song, music maker Barry Elmer, 'The Voice' vocalist Holly Cosgrove, singing sensation Harriet Loveridge, vocal star Joe Harris, divine diva Sarah Montague & rising star Reece Williams.
A great song should lift your heart, warm the soul and make you feel good, imagine your euphoria after enjoying an evening with so many wonderful melodic memories all seamlessly merged together, by the show's Producer & Director Colin Matthews, Musical Director Pete Leonard & Choreographer Wesley Waring.
