Book The Mary Lou Revue
Song & Dance Duo
The Mary Lou Revue is a celebration of music, song and dance from the 1920s through to 1950s, with a few extra surprises thrown in. It’s a riot of Swing Jazz/ Big Band Classics, Music Hall numbers and Vintage Hollywood musical favourites.
Crooner Slim Ditty combines Rat Pack cool with Vaudeville style banter and physicality, while showgirl Mary Lou dazzles with tap, Charleston and swing dance moves. Mary Lou also takes to the mic as a pretty fine jazz singer too. Together, they have performed at festivals including Bestival, Wilderness and Glastonbury, as well as private functions such as weddings, anniversaries and birthdays.
The Duo specialise in working in Care Homes, leading song and movement sessions for residents and also put on very decent vintage sing-along nights in pubs, restaurants and clubs. The performances are highly interactive. Audience members are encouraged to sing along (often song sheets, props and costume bits are provided).
They have a multitude of costumes to suit the various eras covered in their repertoire, anything from Victorian Music Hall to classic Hollywood glamour. Marie-Louise is a Total Theatre Award nominee, Place Prize semi-finalist and a Dance UK award winner.
★ All performances are highly interactive where audience members are encouraged to sing along

The Mary Lou Revue were just perfect for our wedding welcome drinks. We cannot thank them enough and our guests commented on how brilliant they were. It’s safe to say they were a magical part of our amazing day.
Hayley and Steve Bolshaw
Marie Lou Revue is a fantastic cabaret show. They are regular visitors to both Orchard House and many other Order of St Johns Care Trust residential homes across the SouthWest. Their varied act is a pleasure to watch, both Mary-Lou and Steve are very professional and accommodating and interact with both residents and staff, they are a fantastic show act, with a variety of songs and dance acts to suit all.They are on the preferred entertainers list for the whole of the Trust and are well respected by myself and others who are involved. I would highly recommend Mary Lou Revue to anyone.
