Viva Vegas Live promises aerial performance, new guest vocalists and large scale production numbers from their biggest cast yet, all compered by Viva’s own entertainment director Leye D Johns.

The show has run every week at the Church Street venue since it opened in 2012, with regular seasonal updates and changes year-on-year.

The latest outing promises to ‘bring a taste of high end Las Vegas glamour to the thriving venue.’

Leye D Johns said: “We’re so excited about the new Viva Vegas Live production that we’ve been preparing behind the scenes over the past couple of months.

“Here at Viva we’re all about bringing that Vegas glitz to the Fylde Coast and we’re sure that the new show is going to do exactly that.

“This is the start of a journey we’re going on here at Viva to evolve the show, stage, cast and venue all with the aim of making it bigger, better and more Vegas.”

The new 11-strong cast will feature male dancers for the first time in the venue’s history, in addition to the glamourous Viva showgirls and singers the show’s fans have come to expect, bringing Vegas-style production values to audiences on the Fylde Coast.

Among previous credits, the cast have performed at Proud Cabaret in London, and for Royal Caribbean Cruises and Celebrity Cruise Line, and Leye believes they’re ‘one of the most talented and acclaimed casts in the resort.’

With musical numbers spanning everything from classic show tunes right through to contemporary tracks including Rag’n’Bone Man’s smash hit Human, the show promises to offer something for everyone.

The venue’s stage has been extended, and video screens are also being improved ahead of the show’s launch, and new glittering and glamourous costumes have been ordered.

As part of the investment into the show the resident cast will get a programme of professional development ensuring they are able to be at the forefront of the industry, constantly enhancing their skills to bring the highest quality productions to Viva.
