Prepare yourselves. The Fawlty Towers Dinner Dance is here, bringing the much loved characters of Fawlty Towers to life in a fun filled night of mayhem and music!
If you’re unaware of what Fawlty Towers is (seriously, where have you been!?), it refers to the title of a British television sitcom broadcast on BBC2 in 1975 and 1979. Set in Fawlty Towers, a fictional hotel, the plots centre on tense, rude and put-upon owner Basil Fawlty, his bossy wife Sybil, comparatively normal chambermaid Polly who often is the peacemaker and voice of reason, and hapless and English-challenged Spanish waiter Manuel, showing their attempts to run the hotel amidst farcical situations and an array of demanding and eccentric guests and tradespeople.
While there was only 12 episodes (two series of six episodes each), the show was an absolute hit and is now a cult-classic. It was even ranked first on a list of the 100 Greatest British Television Programmes.
Bringing the fun-filled and unforgettable havoc to Geelong this August, the Fawlty Towers Dinner Dance is an interactive dinner service filled with comic mishaps, mayhem and mischief from Basil, Sybil and Manuel… in Fawlty style of course!
You are greeted at the door by Sybil who tries hard all night to keep order and just a little bit of sophistication to the proceedings; you will be fussed over and ordered about by Basil as he tries to run a profitable restaurant, and you have everything go wrong that possibly can as Manuel mucks up all the orders and then goes searching for his pet rat.
As if their mad cap antics weren’t enough, Basil, Sybil and Manuel are also joined by the fabulous music duo ‘The Baby Boomers’ presenting classic hits and memories from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. With a combination like this, attendees are guaranteed to be singing and dancing the night away.
With sold out shows around the country and with actors that look and act just like the real cast of The Fawlty Towers, you’ll feel like you’re back in 1975.
There is never a dull moment, and you never know what is going to happen next as the Fawlty Towers Dinner Dance takes over The Sphinx Hotel on Saturday August 25.
