The Velma Celli Cabaret Show

14th December 2017

7-8pm happy hour

8pm doors

9pm show starts

International Cabaret Star Velma Celli and West End Star Zoe Curlett are back for a Christmas Cabaret including new material never seen at The Dukes before! Come and laugh your heads off at the truly hilarious double act that is Velma & Zoe Curlett. Reserve your seats for £20/person by calling 01525 237892. Seats are very limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.

This is a musical theatre revue, including classic show tunes, jazz standards, from Bassey to Beyoncé and everything in between. Switching from hysterical impressions of some of your favourite divas such as Britney Spears and Cher to stripped back acoustic arrangements of popular pop songs in ways you have never heard them, this roller- coaster of a cabaret really hits every spot!

Zoe has appeared in West End hit show Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables and Cats!  Ian (the man behind the makeup) is a West End and cabaret star who has appeared in hit Musicals such as Chicago, Cats, Fame and Rent where he received critical acclaim.  He has enjoyed a varied career in film and TV and even asked to appear on BBC’s Eastenders as Velma for a rather fabulous and epic guest episode.  Last year he fronted the U.K commercial campaign for McDonalds and starred opposite Danny Dyer in the music short Nebraska for recording artist Lucy Rose.  He made his silver screen debut last Autumn in the Feature film ‘Night of the Lotus’ and this spring filmed another guest appearance as Velma in the new American comedy series “P*ss Off, I love You!”
