Song Contest – The Almost Eurovision Experience
Song Contest – the Almost Eurovision Experience is a glitzy comedic musical tribute to all things we love, hate and love more about Eurovision.
Waaay over the top, interactive, sparkly, a cross between a musical comedy, a concert and a live sporting event – it will be LOUD, fast-paced and ends in a nail-biting finish. Eleven countries compete and just like the real thing, the audience votes determines who wins at every performance.
An amazing cast, celebrity cameo appearances and featuring legendary comedian Bev Killick as Bettina Bitjakokov, the Belarusian hostess with the moistest.
As any fans of Eurovision might expect there will be drama backstage and something may not go according to plan.
The stellar cast will be representing eleven countries, performing original love songs, funky pop and possibly one power ballad that is just a bit wrong.
Windblown hair, costume malfunctions, weirdness, slick choreography, explosive lighting and more clackers and flags than is wise, this show will excite any die-hard Eurovision fan and lure new ones into this party-like experience.
Award winning international director, producer and comedian Glynn Nicholas suggests that you don’t wear mascara to this spanking brand new, and possibly loudest musical show in the world.
