Phil Crosby Jnr
Friday 16 November 7.45pm
The grandson of the legendary entertainer Bing Crosby makes a rare visit to the UK and comes to the Civic Theatre for an exclusive Essex concert.
The 20th century, without a doubt, was THE period for the greatest vocalists and music in American history and Phil Crosby Jr, who grew up in one of the most well-known families in Hollywood, has defined himself as a stand out entertainer continuing this legacy of American music and culture, for an entirely new generation of listeners to appreciate.
Don’t miss this chance to see this modern day crooner perform songs from the likes of Sammy Davies Jnr, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Cole Porter etc and of course Bing.
Mat Ricardo VS The World
Saturday 24 November 7.45pm
Award-winning cabaret star, and the UK’s most successful juggler, Mat Ricardo, had a problem – after a 30-year career as the go-to guy for jaw-dropping dexterity, he’d run out of new tricks. So he did something stupid. He bet everyone in the world that he could learn any trick they could think of.
He devoted the next year attempting to learn them well enough to perform in front of a live audience, in his new show “Mat Ricardo vs The World”!
This is a one-man variety show – world-class juggling, magic and illusion, escapology, sleight of hand, knife throwing, stand-up comedy, feats of strength, demonstrations of dexterity, and the only good trick that exists with a fidget spinner.
Recommended age 12+
