“We hope that Christmas Cracker will bring audiences escapism and merriment as this eventful year draws to a close. This season, more than ever, we celebrate the hope and joy that Christmas can bring; looking forward to a new year in which faithful friends who are dear to us will be near to us once more.”

Described as “the most exciting musical theatre double act to be discovered in years” (West End Frame), Dominic Ferris and Martin Milnes are a unique combination. Dominic is a pianist extraordinaire; Martin has ‘two voices’. Together they combine comedy, music and vocals in a dynamic cocktail of explosive Broadway glamour and fun!  They made their debut at Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in Stephen Sondheim’s 85th Birthday Gala, performing their signature mash-up medley 33 Sondheim Numbers In 5 Minutes.

Their debut West End show played at Ambassadors Theatre, and they have been seen annually at West End LIVE in Trafalgar Square. Ferris & Milnes’ Gershwin mash-up premiered at the Rose Theater, Lincoln Center, New York. Earlier this year they created We’ll Meet Again, a morale-boosting music film dedicated to the theatre industry featuring the late Dame Vera Lynn and many West End stars. 

“During these troubling times for the live events and theatre industries, we are immensely grateful to all the artists, agents, production teams and everyone at Riverside Studios for having belief and trust that we can create something a little bit joyous and socially distant at the end of such a tough year.”
