“OH WHAT A NIGHT!” – THE CHRISTMAS SHOW

The cast of “OH WHAT A NIGHT!”, the internationally renowned tribute to Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, celebrates the Christmas season with a brand new show that definitely creates “holiday sparkle”.

 

In the “OH WHAT A NIGHT!” Christmas show the cast will warm you up with some of the most popular songs from their fast paced musical tribute to the legendary Frankie Valli and then transform you into a Christmas wonderland with a brand new tribute to “Mr. Christmas” himself – the great ANDY WILLIAMS.

“OH WHAT A NIGHT!” Is an in-depth musical revue, bringing to life thirty of the Four Seasons' hits.  It's a captivating tribute to the songbook of this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame super group with note-perfect renditions of the iconic "Jersey boys"! The show features 4 talented performers singing live that “feel good” music you grew up with that made the name Frankie Valli known around the globe.

In the 1960’s and 70’s the ANDY WILLIAMS television show was a staple in households around the world and his annual Christmas shows were some of the most anticipated specials ever made. His “Moon River” Theatre (named after his signature song) was the first non-country music theatre to be opened in Branson Mo., and allowed this iconic performer to remain in front of his loyal fans until shortly before his passing.

The talented cast of “OH WHAT A NIGHT!” easily recreates the legendary sound of “Andy Williams and the Williams Brothers” with such songs as “It’s The Holiday Season”, “Jingle Bells”, “The Christmas Song”, “White Christmas”, “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” (which was written specifically for The Andy Williams Show), and of course “Moon River”.

“Everybody loves these songs.  The melodies and harmonies are great to sing and the songs are always a special memory for somebody”, says producer George Solomon.

Staying true to the original recordings this tribute to Frankie Valli & Andy Williams honours the talents of two American legends.  Don’t miss this incredible musical experience.
