So last night was the teams annual Christmas party night! We love silly season and all love an excuse to let our hair down and party! The whole team headed out and it was definitely a night to remember. With a lovely meal, secret santa goodies and lots of drinks!
We were in the festive mood from the start and celebrated a great year into the early hours of this morning. Everyone had a brilliant time and it was a perfect way to round off an amazing Manic year.
Before we take some time off to enjoy Christmas, we hope that you all have a great festive season of your own and wish everybody an excellent new year.
See you in 2014 with lots of new exciting Manic projects its in the pipeline!

These past few months have literally been ... MANIC!!
But that didn't stop us finding time to give a little something back. The team really do enjoy working at charity events across the city and often give up time to support and perform at charity events and shows.
Its great to see just what a little time, effort and generosity can do.
Back in early November we performed with the much loved ‘Fabulous Miss G at her Frocked up in Horror event raising money for Portsmouth Breast Friends.
We have been dancing behind Miss G and her amazing team for the past 5 years now and each show gets better and better. This time Miss G scared the audience and sent chills and thrills through the guests with a Halloween themed show.
Nicole & Matt, creative directors of Manic picked some great numbers to dance too, they interpreted the theme perfectly. Tracks included hits from ‘The Rocky Horror Show’ 'Cabaret` and the well known song ‘Candyman’.
These numbers went down a treat with the guests, take a little look at a couple of video clips here!
As always Miss G put on an unforgettable show and The SHOW Girlz added their usual sparkly stamp. Naturally the evening was full of cracking costumes, high flying kicks, splits, song and dance. And no Miss G show would be the same with out her cheeky audience participation section!
The finale of this show was ‘The Timewarp!’.... Unexpected gents were invited up on to the stage to be transformed into Rocky Horror style Sweet Transvestites and partnered up with our girls to end the show with a great fun filled number The Time Warp.
A few weeks later Nicole hosted an hour of ‘The Rowans Hospice, Dance-A-Thon’
Taking to the stage at 10pm for her one hour slot, Nicole proved popular at this late night event, teaching some Grease themed routines to some very willing, energetic dancers, with lots of stamina.
Within this 6 hour dance-a-thon the group were most definitely put through their paces. Being musical theatre themed it seemed a great opportunity to dust off everyones inner Danny and Sandy and go Grease Lightning with all the girls and guys on this not so Summer Night! Everyone loved getting into partners and boogieing on down to The Hand-Jive! All 75 guests did so well and everyone had a great time and certainly enjoyed this Grease themed hour!
Verity is the spice of life and next up was a charity event for The Rainbow Centre held at the iconic Spinnaker Tower, aptly named ‘Cocktails In The Clouds’. We proved no matter where we are, be it on the ground, up in clouds or even on glass floor hundreds of feet in the air Manic Stage Productions can always put on a sensational show!
With Christmas just around the corner lots of children’s charities are hosting fun filled christmas parties and the Manic party host team have been on hand to help. These fabulous events give the children a chance to enjoy a couple of hours of magical christmas sprit, play games, sing and dance as well as enjoy exciting surprises after a year of hard work and sometime serious illness.
We love meeting these special little youngsters and get such pleasure seeing them all excited for Christmas time.
Finally, for the third year running we took to the Kings Theatre stage to perform for the amazing charity The BBC’s Children In Need. It is with out doubt one of our favorite things to be a part of each year and we are honored every time we are invited back to perform.
This year our good friend Pudsey bear asked us to open AND close the show! This meant the team had to pull out all of the stops and we certainly did just that!
For our 1st appearance on stage we wowed the packed out audience with a 15 minute Circus themed medley and even brought our fantastic stilt walker with us!
As a complete contrast the finale of the night was our smooth, slick, Vegas medley featuring the super talented Jamie Riley and our girls in fabulous feathers. Jamie had the audience on their feet with his rendition of New York New York and the whole cast joined him on stage for a show stopping kick line.
As always the show was a true success and a great pleasure to be a part of.
If you are planning a charity event please do not hesitate to contact us for our discounted charity prices. I am sure we can help in some way and would love to be part of your efforts to raise money for such great causes.

‘There’s no BUSINESS like Show Business!!’
For the last few days of November we packed up our feathers and lashes and travelled up to the big smoke. We had been booked to work at The Business Show, 2013 at London’s famous venue, Kensington Olympia.
The SHOW Girlz were there to promote stand 522 and their cloud based business management system. It was a great chance to show off just how our speciality acts, skills and personality can draw new clients to any business, no matter what field it is in.
Amongst 1000’s of stands showcasing their business and corporate ideas I can assure you we stood high above the rest! Up on our stilts we could be seen from all corners of the massive exhibition centre handing out iTEM leaflets.
To add to the unique promotional approach our girlz were dressed up differently every hour including sailors, showgirls, flapper girls, bunnies and many many more through out each day.
Our constant costume changes and stilt walking definitely attracted the desired attention. Crowds formed round the stand for pictures and discussions about us and to say we managed to get the stand noticed is an understatement.
We even managed to get interviewed by 2 film crews :-)
You know us by now, we love the attention and had a great time over the two days. Promotion and performance is what we do and we loved being a part of the iTEM team.
We take great pride in our work and helping make everyone aware of the cloud based business management system ‘ITEM’ that we were promoting was so much fun.
James the director had this to say "Absolutely legendary work by Nicole and her girls, thank you so much!"
Our promotional team and skills will definitely be remembered and if you think The SHOW Girlz could help give a little glitz and glam to your business, do not hesitate to get in touch.
