Jimmy Osmond recently took his show, ‘Moon River & Me – A Tribute to Andy Williams’, to Shanklin Theatre and as part of the hospitality provided to Jimmy and his band, the Green Room Catering Team from The Friends of Shanklin Theatre provided them with supper before their performance. On the menu was Chicken in White Wine sauce with Dauphinoise Potatoes, followed by Pavlova.
Jimmy was so impressed by his meal that he Tweeted a picture of himself with the Catering Team and as he called it, ‘their Yummy Pavlova’. As readers may recall, back in 2016 Jimmy did well reaching the final of BBC’s Celebrity MasterChef, so the Team were slightly nervous in catering for him, but as you can see they came up trumps!
This of course is not the first visit to Shanklin Theatre for Jimmy, back in December 2016 two of the Osmond brothers ‘Jay & Merrill’ performed alongside Jimmy in their world famous show, ‘The Andy Williams Christmas Extravaganza Variety Show’ to a full and packed theatre.
Our catering team prepared and cooked a wonderful pre-show dinner for the visiting American stars in the theatre’s Green Room. Speaking after the show, Jay Osmond said, “I absolutely love Shanklin & the Old Village, I think it’s cute. I would love to return in the summer months to explore more of your wonderful Island.”
