COME-FLY-WITH-ME-collage-TRUMP-update
COME FLY WITH ME 22nd March 2017
Final show at SLIDE – closing for renovations
Flaps down, ready for take off, and assume the crash position!
The long run of sold out shows for more than a year is proof that Come Fly With Me is a true hit show. Bold and brash and fearlessly fun, you’re guaranteed to enjoy this flight…
From boarding to take-off, upgrades, downgrades and the all new safety demonstration, you are in safe hands until stowaways appear from the cargo hold. Add a couple of high-powered First Class passengers and an illegal substance in the aircraft air-con unit and the show is truly flying high!
“hilarious!” “outrageous” “The best fun!”

Leave It To Diva’s Bollywood Hens Night

IMG_4134IMG_4136

Leave It To Diva’s Bollywood Hens Night

By special design Leave It To Diva created a very special Hens Night for beautiful bride to be Claudia King in her home in Bellevue Hill.  30 gorgeous girls enjoyed the festivities and were entertained by performers Minnie Cooper and the Love Guru, Guru Pitka.  It was a spectacular afternoon with Pimms and cake and the glamorous  Minnie Cooper led the gathering in party games and singing all designed by the Leave It To Diva production crew.

The highlight of the afternoon was the arrival of the Love Guru who sang his favourite Bollywood Love Songs – Girls Just Want To Have Naan, Poppadam Preach and Get Chapati Started and had all the girls learning Bollywood dancing.  Much to their delight the handsome waiter Angus McGuigan was encouraged to remove his shirt and danced with the girls Bollywood style.

The party was made complete by the surprise arrival of the head bridesmaid from London who was secretly dressed in an Indian Sari, and presented to the bride, who immediately burst into tears.

Gilligan’s Island

Hi there…

Its been a while since we’ve worked together so I thought I’d bring you up to date and introduce you to a few other entertainment acts I produce as well as the latest bespoke shows that have happened this year. Even though you receive my newsletter I thought I’d personally let you know about some of our latest and most popular shows for conferences and events. Over the next few days I will send you a ‘best of’ email. I’d love to chat about finding solutions to entertainment queries for your event.

Gilligan’s Island Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip. That started on this tropic isle aboard this tiny ship…..

The Skipper, Gilligan, Ginger, Maryanne and Mrs Howell greeted the delegates of Plumbing Plus at Hamilton Island then escorted them to their 3 day conference on Daydream Island. The crew then performed a specially tailored show including the Gilligan’s Island Theme, I’m a Survivor, All the Ginger Ladies, I will Survive and We are Family. That night 2 hula girls greeted the delegates and a beautiful mermaid was stranded on a rock for photographs. Your shipwreck stars are professional music theatre artists and actors including RohanSeinor, Debra Krizak, Andrew Benson, Laurence Coy andBreeLangridge. This is a perfect destination show or island themed event.
