Marlow Theatre
Velma Celli

‘The UK’s Queen of live vocal drag’ is BACK at The Marlow studio by popular demand and this time “she” brings you her most magical show yet… It’s the witching hour: daylight and darkness are almost equal. It is at this time when the Diva is unleashed and all are invited to Velma’s lair to celebrate all her favourite bitching witches from Musical Theatre, film and popular culture.

A spellbinding journey with The Grand High Witch herself, this lovable diva ain’t no Wicked Witch of the West.

From Ursula to Elphaba and every belty enchantress from the coven in between, Velma will Put a Spell on You with a little bit of her practical cabaret magic!

Black sequins shimmy through the crowd as all eyes stick to the divine mistress herself. There are classic witch manifestos in ‘Poor Unfortunate Souls’ and ‘Defying Gravity’ – immaculately performed. Celli’s voice is so phenomenal that the audience’s jaws cannot fight the forces of gravity and remain firmly on the floor! There’s a stunning reimagining of ‘1000 Years’ and the most chilling rendition of ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ that is gentle and giving and warm.

Equinox is a love letter to all the witches and magical creatures who have graced our stages and screens. Velma Celli is utterly spellbinding as she sings the siren songs of the hags and creatures that go bump in the night. She weaves her magic in the truly bewitching arrangements of any song with a link – tenuous or not – to magic.
