Musical magical feast
TAKE 18 magical musicians (the Matthew Ives Big Band) and add three marvellous male vocalists (John X, Andrew Colrain and Colin Dean). Mix in four fabulous female songsters (Allison Farrow, Di Richards, Nicole Simms-Farrow and Blythe Tait). Swirl around with four delightful dancers (the Croonettes), season lavishly with lighting, sound and backdrops, then plate up with pride at the newly renovated Theatre Royal. If you missed out on this smorgasbord of talent (aka The Very Best of Croon), all is not lost.
A second helping, Christmas at the Casino with Croon featuring the same band, singers and dancers, is on the menu at Wrest Point Showroom on December 18. Jo Gibbs Sandford
