Songs n Stuff is a collection of songs and dances celebrating all that is good about life, with its ups and downs to be performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe at the Arthur Conan Doyle Centre each weekend in August 2018. It is performed by 'Black Swan Song' actress Natalie Wilcox. In order to get to Edinburgh we need to fund rehearsals, a director, and advertising in the programme which needs to be done in 4 weeks' time; hence our request for support!
In a world that sometimes feels a dangerous place to live, this collection of material - made famous by greats such as Norman Wisdom, Fred Astaire, Morecambe and Wise and Julie Andrews - is compiled not only to showcase and commemorate these people's memories but also to spread a little joy to an international audience through the international languages of music and dance. In addition to being a singer and dancer, the main performer, Natalie Wilcox, is a talented linguist who to date speaks 6 languages.
With a short question and answer session after the show, Natalie promises to do her best to answer questions in English, French, Italian, Spanish or German. (She is a little new to Polish, but she is learning this language too and can understand a little Norwegian, Danish and Romanian). Natalie's raison d'être is generally to speak and understand languages, sing and tap dance. There will be a variety of songs for all and this show is for a family audience. New to the guitar, Natalie will spend a small amount of time, sharing some of her recently-written songs and promises to live up to her reputation for creating moving and entertaining theatre.
Our suggested donation is £10 per person. We hope that this will be a welcome addition to the Arthur Conan Doyle Centre in Edinburgh for each weekend of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
