Sunday 4 December 2011
Following the success of last year’s Arts Centre fundraising show Applause! The show is back and it’s even bigger and better complete with comedy, singing, dancing and a whole evening of top class entertainment.
Geoff Marsh makes a welcome return as compére and where Geoff goes his stalwart partner in crime Ken Jell is never far behind.
Local talent includes Swindon Music Festival trophy winners Jill McRae & Becci Benson with their beautiful rendition of ‘Tell Him’. Jill and Becci have been singing together for many years under the name of CraeSon and had their own sell out show at the Arts Centre. Also appearing will be Jack Townsend who trod the boards at the London Palladium in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang back in 2005. Last year Danni Marsh appeared as the VIP interval act during Applause! and also went on to appear at the Classical Concert at the Bowl. This summer Danni attended the West End Summer School with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Group culminating in a performance at Her Majesty’s Theatre. James Daubney enthralled audiences and judges in Swindon Talent 2010 and now he is showcasing his guitar talents in Applause!
Opening the show will be Stage Struck’s Alex Greenfield and Miss Kell’s School of Dance with a sparkly number guaranteed to set the mood for a glitzy evening of top class entertainment.
Direct from London’s prestigious Brit School we welcome 4 talented vocalists in the form of The Fortes and joining the line up we are thrilled to announce two very special celebrity guests, Josh Dubovie and Patrick Monahan. In 2010 Josh was selected to represent the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest and travelled to Norway to carry the flag the with the UK entry ‘That Sounds Good to me’ and has since released his first album. Comedian Patrick Monahan has just won prime time TV show ‘Show Me The Moneh’. Jack Stuckey may be a familiar face having appeared on ITV’s X-Factor in 2009 before going on to impress judges at Swindon Talent 2011 and now he is appearing alongside his new singing partner Alistair Ward.
This promises to be a night to remember with something for everyone and all in the presence of the Mayor of Swindon and the Arts Centre’s Patron and TV personality Richard Digance.
