A Showbiz Adventure

Connie loves the thought of appearing on stage, her name in lights, dancing and singing to loads of adoring fans. So, she takes the troupe on a showbiz adventure.


Here’s a sneak preview of the brand-new Armchair Adventures Podcast episode and Connie is joined by a new set of lovely customers; the folks from The Johnny Barlow Theatre Company.

In the fifth instalment of Armchair Adventures, ‘A Showbiz Adventure’, we hear that Connie’s parent’ travel agents was supposed to be booking the company on a tour with their latest show, but because of coronavirus (yep, still causing problems!) the show was cancelled. It was going to be performed at schools, assisted living homes and community centres and they were really looking forward to it. Connie doesn’t like to see anyone disappointed. So she surprises the group with their very own Armchair Adventure.

After a few vocal warm ups, big stretches and some funny faces (which you can join in with at home) their bodies and imaginations are warmed up enough to set off on an adventure. After dreaming of Broadway, the West End, Paris, and even Vegas, Connie settles on… a mixture of all of them! A Showbiz Wonderland where everyone can be the star of the show.

“That’s not really what our shows are about Connie, but it does sound like an adventure”

They arrive in a bustling street, filled with photographers, red carpets, bubbling cocktails, bright lights and huge billboards. THE. FULL. WORKS. A few of the customers are a little wary; this is a lot bigger and brighter than what they’re used to. But when a massive limo complete with a hot tub turns up to take them to their performance, who could resist. Well, certainly not Connie who loves seeing her name in lights!

What happens next? Will Connie and her adventurers get to perform their show? Will Connie’s new found fame go to her head?
