Residents at Lime Court Care Home kicked off their festive celebrations this week when James Cowdery from JJZ productions came to host a spectacular winter show.
Team members at the care home wanted to welcome Christmas with a bang, so inviting James to perform a selection of festive favourites and hits from the musicals aimed to get everyone in a Christmassy mood.
James isn’t the average singer though, as he adds comedy and engages with people throughout his shows. Because of this reputation, the performance was well attended by residents, relatives and friends, making this even more special for the people living at Lime Court.
To liven up the crowd, James started his set with some popular Christmas carols from the past. These songs are familiar to the residents at Lime Court and helps to bring back fond Christmas memories with family and friends. James then went on to perform some songs from west-end musicals. To add comedy to the performance, James would ‘quick-change’ into outfits to match each song, bringing many moments of laughter.
Everyone who attended had a great time singing, dancing and engaging with James during the performance whilst immersing themselves in in the Christmassy theme.
The enthusiasm that James showed throughout the performance was inspiring and certainly rubbed off on the residents. He was incredibly talented and put lots of effort into the show which was noticed and appreciated by all.
This was the first time James has been to Lime Court to host a show, but following the enjoyable afternoon and positive feedback, we have no doubt that he’ll be back again soon!
