I Love Music
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
Music is the universal language, and what feelings sound like! It inspires us and as quoted by Victor Hugo, “expresses that which cannot be said”. Albeit this all new show, I Love Music - has a lot to say!
You can expect to enjoy a fun-filled show which will take you on an inspirational musical journey, encapsulating all genres on the musical spectrum. Enjoy pop classics from Queen, Take That, Little Mix, George Michael, Paloma Faith and John Legend amazing operatic arias interspersed with some of the most favoured and popular songs from movie sound tracks which include, Skyfall, A Star is Born, Mamma Mia and the Greatest Showman and from the musicals, Les Misérables, Billy Elliot and Dear Evan Hanson. Prepare to be starstruck as all these and more will be performed by a cast of ten extremely talented vocalists.
Host and compere, Andy Oakley 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 this show it will be his vocal prowess, that impresses.
Other cast members that will be hitting the high notes are, West End Vocalist, Paul Cobley, dream girl, Lisa T. Jordan, international vocalist Jodie Cooper, music maker Barry Elmer, Sami-Jane who is as adept at interpreting a pop hit as she is the most dramatic show song, the multi-talented Wayne Martin, pop sensation Holly Cosgrove and rising star Josh Cousins
They are joined by our special guest, Lily Laight, although only 17, she has a wealth of experience. Lily appeared with the original cast of Matilda on London’s West End, on TV in Doc Martin and in 2014 hit the headlines worldwide when the movie, Love Rosie went on release. This show will mark Lily’s sixteenth production on the Babbacombe boards!
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 Sadie Oliver.
