Forget the handbell choir. Create a night to remember in Singapore with these entertaining acts.
01: AGENT PROVOCATEUR
Loud, unabashedly flamboyant and unapologetically raw, drag queen extraordinaire Becca D’Bus has the ability to turn heads and raise eyebrows with his colourful burlesque routine and larger-than-life persona. Along with his entourage of fellow queens, the 39-year-old Eugene Tan dishes out risque jokes and pure, unadulterated fun in equal measure. Best deployed after guests have downed their fifth cocktail. www.riotdragshow.com

02: MAKE A SPLASH
Take the party outdoors to the infinity pool with mermaid performer Cara Nicole Neo. Going by the moniker Syrena, Neo enchants with her well-choreographed underwater acts and mesmerising monofin. Poise and graceful manoeuvres aside, her aquatic performances are a visual treat melding folklore and fantasy – the perfect combination for a captivating evening. www.themermaidsyrena.com

03: TURN UP THE HEAT
The Fireworks dance by Wildfire Entertainment brings together a mesmerising combination of perfectly timed dance choreography and simulated fireworks – high-tech pyro effects produced by a smokeless fireworks replicator. This visual spectacle utilises non-combustible machines suited for both indoor and outdoor performances. www.wildfire.sg
04: ALL THAT JAZZ
There’s nothing quite like the allure of a live musical trio to add a touch of elegance to an evening soiree. Music provider High Notes is bound to get guests tapping their feet and swaying to the beat with their soulful renditions of Christmas classics by Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra. Make a special request for vocalist Melissa Tham, the Singaporean jazz singer with a voice reminiscent of Ella Fitzgerald’s smooth, honeyed vocals. www.highnotes.com.sg
05: FLIGHT OF FANCY
A cut above the rest, illusionist Alexander Yuen from Meta Illusions incorporates technology, in the form of iPads, into his magic tricks, putting a fresh new spin on age-old acts. Accompanying him is an adept crew of street magicians capable of working the crowd in an intimate party setting. www.singaporemagicshows.com
