Mr Wippy and the Conettes - Musical Theatre
Mr Wippy and the Conettes is a piece of mobile, musical theatre based in an antique ice cream van. The styling is reminiscent of 1940's American 'Cheesecake' art and the saucy seaside postcard art of pre-war Britain, tailored to suit family audiences. The theme of the show is ice cream and it is 20mins long. The characters: Mr. Wippy - the compere and crooner, Knickerbocker Glory (AKA Strawberry Sauce) the leading lady and The Conettes-the two backing singers, all sing and dance familiar Hollywood musical numbers with rewritten lyrics. After shows the cast offer short dance workshops to members of the audience, all ages are welcome.
