Bugle Boy: Christmas Cracker Matinee Show Wed, Fri & Sat 11 - 30 on Wednesday 12th December 2018
Edinburgh Fringe hit Bugle Boys bring cracking Christmas show to Assembly Roxy
Having wowed the crowds at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe, the festival’s campest drag queens are coming to Assembly Roxy in December with brand new show, BUGLE BOYS: CHRISTMAS CRACKERS.
Frocked up to the nines, Patty, Maxene and Laverne are set to dance their shapely legs off while singing live at the Roxy, 11th-30th December. This comedy/cabaret holiday hoot is packed full of humour, sass and crowd-pleasers, including festive hits by The Andrews Sisters, Bing Crosby, Wham, Kylie, Mariah and more.
Last seen performing to 1,300 festival revellers at the notorious Club Cumming, The Bugle Boys return to Edinburgh with a raunchy alternative to the traditional work Christmas social. The show combines live music and drag with suggestive comedy and some good old fashioned shade. It’s directed by Barry Church-Woods and sees Ewan James Armstrong, Martin MacLennan and Tom Harlow reprise their roles as foulmouthed Andrews Sisters knock-offs.
Barry Church-Woods says: “We had such a fantastic time introducing the Bugle Boys to Edinburgh this August, we decided to move straight onto a Christmas extravaganza. We reckon there’s a gap in the market for a festive afternoon or night out that isn’t panto or the Nutcracker.
Assembly Roxy Programmer, Luke Holbrook says: “Following the success of The Bugle Boys: A Salute to The Andrews Sisters as part Assembly’s 2018 Fringe programme, we are thrilled to be welcoming the Bugle Boys to the Roxy this Christmas. We wanted to offer an alternative Christmas show to audiences in Edinburgh, and none will bring more joy and hilarity than this one.”
Written by John Livings, Christmas Crackers is produced by Bugle Boys Pty and Civil Disobedience (Scottish Culture Awards 2018 ‘One to Watch’ finalist), with the December run consisting of both matinees and evening performances.
