This weekend was the long awaited show time for our Glee themed Flash Mob and Mamma Mia` style bespoke show, when 35 performers hopped, skipped and pirouetted into Aqua Kyoto and Aqua Nueva on Argyll Street for one great big 30th birthday party.
Entertainment really was the name of the game, with glow jugglers greeting guests on arrival, a photobooth to capture the fun and frolics throughout the evening, our wonderful acrobalance duo, Synergy, offered an eye catching, muscle flexing treat beside the bar and our fire performers from Flame Oz lit up the night sky on the beautiful top floor balcony that looks over London.Little did guests know that hidden in their midst was an all singing all dancing hand picked troupe of the best performers that West End musical theatre has to offer. It starts with a blood-curdling howl from one of the ‘guests’ that’s eerily reminiscent of the beginning of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, and as it turns out, it is the beginning of Thriller. A choreographed routine kicks into action with a few performers on the other side of the room, then gradually more and more people join the show.
Taking things up a notch, the boys leap onto the stage and break into Beyonce’s iconic routine from Single Ladies, though mercifully for the guys we decided that a well cut suit would be for fitting than a figure hugging black leotard (don’t think we didn’t try it.) What kind of Glee Flashmob would it be without a heartfelt arrangement of Don’t Stop Believing? Well, you could hardly call it a Glee themed Flashmob at all; so it’s a good job the ‘mob busted out those now famous “doop doop doop doops” to bring it home.The group finished their show to whoops and cheers from guests of all ages, and what was so exciting from our perspective was, they didn’t even know they had a fully fledged Mamma Mia Tribute just around the corner in Aqua Nueva.
At 22.30 all the guests were called across to Nueva where the real party kicked off to a colourful start with a glittering array of dancers and our three fabulous singers from the Fabba Girls. High kicks, flying splits and feather boas instantly transformed the room before our very eyes. There were smiles from across the room as guests began to link arms and sing along like it was the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974.
The evening was then taken over by Guilty Pleasures who provided a fantastic array of cheesy pop and hairy men in leg warmers to continue the fun and colourful theme of the evening. It really was a night to remember thanks to the brilliant performers and fantastic production team.
