Award-winning Follow Spot Productions presents Face The Music 2 to get the whole family into the festive season groove. It will be performed at Kalk Bay Theatre from 12 December until 6 January, with a special countdown on New Year's Eve.
The show combines chart-topping songs and dazzling dance moves with the novel, fun format of a spectacular music game show. There are new songs, new questions, new moves, and two new talented girls for the next instalment of this high-voltage, high-energy show. Powerful harmonies, slick choreography and all the greatest hits from the past fifty years are performed with heaps of attitude, and not forgetting the chance to test your music trivia with prizes from the world's best brandies to be won.
Face The Music won a Standard Bank Ovation Award at the National Arts Festival this year, where Follow Spot were given a travel grant by Fringe World Perth to tour Australia, the UK and Europe in 2013. Following the huge success of Face the Music at Kalk Bay Theatre and the Festival in 2012, Distell, distributors of the world's finest brandies, "scouted" the show. Follow Spot proudly announces a partnership with Distell which will see Distell brandies available during the run at Kalk Bay Theatre and being given away as prizes in the Face the Music 2 quiz.
"Play the game or be a spectator, but either way you'll be entertained, but play and you could win some of the world's best brandies" says Simon Cooper, owner of Kalk Bay Theatre. "Come and catch the Follow Spot team, before they tour internationally next year. We also have a special evening lined up for New Year's Eve with sparkling wine, an-eat-as-much-as-you-can buffet of canapés, and a countdown to midnight."
