The cool promise of Christmas is in the air. A crowd is gathered at the Holiday event, excitement crackling in the air around them. At a word, the sound of bells fills the hall as tens of people merrily ring out a Christmas carol. The sound is mesmerizing as live music always is, yet these are not professional musicians. The spirit of the season comes from the smiles and sounds of guests playing music together, and the happiness they feel right now will stay with them for weeks to come. That is the Mrs. Claus bell show!
If you are tone deaf but can distinguish colors YOU can be taught in just 3 minutes how to play bells! Margaret has several wonderful Holiday songs including Silver Bells, Jingle Bells, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Joy to the World, and more! Up to 37 people can play together in the bell choir. This show has been featured on stage at events from intimate home parties to large city events such as the City of Dallas Holiday Wish Celebration 2004 with over 20,000 people in attendance.
This program can be adjusted to suit your needs. For a 30 minute performance, Mrs. Claus starts with storytelling, or her Mary Talks A Lot doll. Through ventriloquism, Mary comes to life and talks to the audience, then finishes with the song “All I want for Christmas is my 2 front teeth.” When a shorter show is requested, Mrs. Claus goes right into the bells for a musical program that lasts 15 – 20 minutes. First the audience learns to properly ring the Christmas bells, and then the bell choir starts performing right away. This is age appropriate for 6 and up, but don’t think this is just for children! Mrs. Claus frequently performs her bell show JUST for adults!
We also have a “come and go” version of the Bell Show for mingling audiences at large events. Margaret gathers a group, teaches the bell ringing technique, and the crowd plays 3 songs. This 10 minute version can be repeated 3 times per hour as crowds change. We provide sound equipment and all the fun. You only provide an electrical outlet and the crowd!
