Around the Globe in Song, January 2016
AKA Air Farce 1
The lovely and very talented friends of the Music Room... Kirsty Moss, Diane MacLean, Jayne Murdoch and I (Carol Brotherston) wrote a comedy/musical show in 2015. The show was an instant success and has since been performed more than 10 times. With a diary full of bookings it will be around for a while.
Let me tell you, if we can do it... anyone can. And, the audience loved it! We already have a couple of bookings already and are looking for more. The show is best suited to an audience of between 50 and 200.
The show is 2 hours long, it is a musical comedy. We take the audience on a journey around the world visiting 18 countries and singing you 40+ songs as you have never heard them before, in our custom built aircraft with the crew of Air Farce 1.
