Mr Wippy & The Conettes // Performer

Curious Company

2010-Current

A Curious Company production, choreography by Marie-Louise Flexen.

Mr Wippy and the Conettes is a piece of mobile, musical theatre based in an antique ice cream van. The styling is reminiscent of 1940’s American ‘Cheesecake’ art and the saucy seaside postcard art of pre-war Britain, tailored to suit family audiences.

The theme of the show is ice cream and it is 15mins long. The characters: Mr. Wippy – the compère and crooner, Knickerbocker Glory (AKA Strawberry Sauce) the leading lady and The Conettes-the two backing singers, all sing and dance familiar Hollywood musical numbers with rewritten lyrics.

Between shows the cast offer short dance workshops to members of the audience, all ages are welcome.
