Ho ho ho! What do we have here? If you dream of a Christmas filled with glitz, glamour, and a generous dash of festive cheer, then Funny Girls has just the ticket for you! Join us in the heart of Blackpool, in the historic 1939 Odeon, for our “Winter Wonderful Christmas Extravaganza”, a show as sparkling and joyful as a bauble on a Christmas tree!
Get ready to be swept off your feet by our gloriously gifted troupe. They’ll jingle all the way through spellbinding numbers from a festive medley of celebrated productions. Watch in awe as they tap-dance with the joyous penguins from Happy Feet, delve into the royal drama of Anastasia, and give you chills with a cool rendition from Frozen.
There’s a trip down memory lane with a White Christmas tribute, and the high-kicking elegance of the Rockettes will have you tapping your toes. With all the sweetness of Nativity and the rib-tickling humour of Elf, this show has something for everyone. Our unique twist on ‘Swine Lake’ will leave you hooting with laughter, and our grand finale? Well, it’s as magical as a ride on the Polar Express!
So why should you wear your festive knitwear and head to Funny Girls this Christmas? Because, sweeties, this isn't just a drag show - it's a sleigh ride into the sparkling heart of the holiday season. Prepare for your heart to be warmed, your spirits to be lifted, and your smile to be wider than a Christmas wreath.
In 1994, Basil Newby MBE transformed a corner shop into the vibrant Funny Girls, an instant sensation in Blackpool. Soon outgrowing its origins, Funny Girls moved into the historic 1939 Odeon, reborn as the iconic Showbar in 2002. Over time, Funny Girls created unforgettable memories, like their ‘Swine Lake’ performance at the Royal Variety Show and a revealing 2013 documentary.
Celebrating 30 years of unparalleled entertainment in 2024, Funny Girls continues to enchant audiences with legendary performers like DJ Zoe, Betty Legs Diamond, and our newest ‘leading lady’ CeCe D’Vyne, promising a bright future of unforgettable moments.
Unlike a theatre show, Funny Girls is not one continuous performance.
Following the opening number, our talented cast perform further routines every 20 minutes or so, until our grand finale which lasts approximately 30 minutes.
Between routines, our DJ & host will keep you entertained.
