Live at the piano, comedy cabaret chanteuse Miss Hope Springs swings the festive season with NOW IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME alongside her sizzling musicians on bass and percussion. Join us on 14th December for an award winning all-original repertoire of cheery cha cha chas, heartwarming torch songs and finger snapping pop... all served with a sequinned frosting of Vegas glitz.
Accompanying herself, as ever, at the piano with her accomplished "Hot Jazz Combo" on bass and drums, the towering blonde ex-Vegas "recovering showgirl" sings famously witty and moving numbers from her acclaimed, entirely self penned repertoire, as she revisits career highs and lows and shares stories from her "Ritz to the pits" life.
Miss Hope Springs is the alter-ego of award-winning singer-songwriter, pianist and comic actor Ty Jeffries (son of the much loved late British character actor Lionel Jeffries). Ty was educated at The Purcell School of Music and as a child, growing up in Hollywood, he dined with Frank Sinatra, danced with Fred Astaire and sang with Maurice Chevalier. "Diana Dors, Shelley Winters and Shirley MacLaine were all family friends" he reveals, "and I suppose getting a real life close-up look at those ladies gave me a rare insight that brings authenticity to my portrayal of the never-say-die show business trouper and ageing glamor-puss that is Miss Hope Springs."
This is a unique evening of delightfully catchy original songs, such as her hit anthem "The Devil Made Me Do It'", that you will find hard to get out of your head!
