Prestige West End Producer Jon Conway and Blackpool’s Christmas stars Jordan Conway & Kelly Banlaki headline “Santa’s Magical Workshop” at Viva Blackpool, for festive family fun!

Viva Blackpool are thrilled to announce the Director and stars of Blackpool’s recent hit show ‘ELF THE MUSICAL’ will be headlining Viva’s snow-tastic Christmas family production ’Santa’s Magical Workshop’ this December.

Martin Heywood, Viva’s Managing Director is delighted that prestige theatre director and producer Jon Conway is leading Viva’s big family festive production:

“Having enjoyed Jon’s mentorship for the past 2 years, we’re thrilled to finally be working together on our first show project – and Jon’s considerable experience in writing and directing major pantomimes across the country is going to elevate our production to a level we could only imagine. Our Christmas wish has come true” “We are also delighted that Jordan Conway and Kelly Banlaki will be our Christmas stars and headlining our festive family show.”

Jordan Conway scored a huge hit as Mathew, the hilarious sidekick to Buddy the Elf in the sell out Opera House show and will bring his unique brand of slapstick comedy to our special Viva yuletide family attraction.

Jordan is no stranger to Viva having been the lead team member of the Crazy Comedy Company this summer both here and on a successful Butlins season.

Kelly Banlaki played the delightful leading lady ‘Jovie’ in Elf. Her fabulous singing voice and multi talents are also no stranger to Blackpool audiences as she is part of the Enderesz circus family who produce the Tower Circus and she featured in this year’s summer production in a presentation with her uncles Mooky and Bubu the clowns.

The cast is completed by Viva’s resplendent resident cast members and Jersey Beats show star Toby Beal. Toby will play the part of the naughty elf who tries to steal all Santa’s presents…

It’s jingle all the way here at Viva this Christmas with our best ever live entertainment for all the family.
