will play Riverside Studios on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 December
Dominic Ferris and Martin Milnes will bring their fun-packed variety extravaganza Ferris & Milnes – Christmas Cracker! to Riverside Studios on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 December 2020 at 8pm.
Audiences can expect the unexpected, as well as the Christmas favourites they know and love, in a heart-warming, foot-tapping seasonal shindig which is sure to delight the whole family. Further details are to be announced.
Described as “the most exciting musical theatre double act to be discovered in years” (West End Frame), Dominic Ferris and Martin Milnes are a unique combination. Dominic is a pianist extraordinaire; Martin has ‘two voices’. Together they combine comedy, music and vocals in a dynamic cocktail of explosive Broadway glamour and fun!
Ferris & Milnes made their debut at Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in Stephen Sondheim’s 85th Birthday Gala, performing their signature mash-up medley 33 Sondheim Numbers In 5 Minutes. Their debut West End show played at Ambassadors Theatre, and they have been seen annually at West End LIVE in Trafalgar Square. Ferris & Milnes’ Gershwin mash-up premiered at the Rose Theater, Lincoln Center, New York. Earlier this year they created We’ll Meet Again, a morale-boosting music film dedicated to the theatre industry featuring the late Dame Vera Lynn and many West End stars.
Ferris & Milnes – Christmas Cracker! is produced by James Quaife and Robin Rayner of New Frame Productions, in association with Ferris & Milnes.
James Quaife and Robin Rayner of New Frame Productions said: “We are incredibly proud to be producing an outstanding line-up of theatrical events as part of our Live at Riverside series this Christmas. During these troubling times for the live events and theatre industries, we are immensely grateful to all the artists, agents, production teams and everyone at Riverside Studios for having belief and trust that we can create something a little bit joyous and socially distant at the end of such a tough year. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with the extraordinarily talented Ferris & Milnes on bringing their Christmas Cracker to the audiences of Hammersmith and we look forward to hearing the sound of applause once more.”
Ferris & Milnes said: “We hope that Christmas Cracker will bring audiences escapism and merriment as this eventful year draws to a close. This season, more than ever, we celebrate the hope and joy that Christmas can bring; looking forward to a new year in which faithful friends who are dear to us will be near to us once more.”
