Mixing vintage glamour with a contemporary flavour Felicity, Johanna and Kelly guarantee you an assortment of frisky fun, complex vocal arrangements and cute costumes and choreography!

This is entertainment that will whisk you back to a time when teenagers were doing the jitterbug and Uncle Sam was asking young men to enlist… bringing a collection of classic 1940’s popular tunes plus some ‘swung up’ modern pop favourites thrown in for fantastic measure.
