Founded by CEO Belinda King in 1984.
Whilst continuing her career as a dancer, Belinda King first produced her own shows whilst working in Asia. Having experienced great success with her small but unique productions, Belinda decided to tour her groups in China, Japan, Malaysia, Korea, Cyprus and Greece.
In 1989 Belinda established herself as the creator and producer of all residential entertainment for the Casinos Solverde Group in Portugal – becoming one of the first producers to bring international entertainment to Portugal at a residential level. This unforgettable partnership continued for a further twenty years until 2009.
Heading back to the UK in 2002, BKCP toured ‘Dance Passion’ in the UK; bringing exceptionally talented dance couples from all over the globe – from England to Argentina, Russia to Brazil – and fusing their talent in a dance spectacular – which has now become one of BKCP’s trademark productions.
Invited to join the cruising industry in 2004, BKCP worked in collaboration with Cunard Line to produce the first residential production shows for the iconic inauguration of the Queen Mary 2. The repertoire began with four incredible production shows – with each one bringing something original and innovative to the cruising industry and winning ‘Best Cruise Entertainment’ in 2006. Following great success, BKCP went on to produce the residential entertainment onboard the QE2, Queen Victoria and the Queen Elizabeth Theatre Company onboard the Queen Elizabeth.
In 2008, BKCP were invited to Monaco to perform ‘Dance Passion’ at the Le Sporting Club for the Monte Carlo Rolex Tennis Masters Gala, and became the first company to be invited back consecutively the following year in 2009; performing for the world’s finest tennis champions and Prince Albert of Monaco and his family.
In 2009, BKCP formed an exclusive partnership with Seabourn Cruise Line – launching their three larger vessels – the Odyssey, Sojourn and Quest.
Working alongside Broadway producer Steven Rivellino, in 2011 BKCP created an exclusive production for New York Life Magazine’s global conference in Athens – with performances both on land within a coliseum, and at sea.
In 2013, Belinda King was awarded Director of the Year for International Business at the IoD Awards East Midlands; and was then nominated as a finalist for the Director of the Year Global Business at the IoD in London.
2015 saw our first World Cruise cast head to Princess Cruise Line’s Sea Princess and a collection of repertoire onboard the Silja Symphony in Autumn 2015. BKCP returned to Princess Cruises in 2016 with a World Cruise Cast tailored to the Pacific and Sea Princess.
In Spring 2016 our expansion across Holland America Line’s fleet took place and now includes the Volendam, Zaandam, Maasdam and Veendam; as well as the Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Prinsendam. We are also delighted to be in collaboration with New York company RWS & Associates aboard Holland America’s latest vessel, the Koningsdam which launched in April 2016 with four spectacular productions for the cruising industry’s most unique theatre – The World Stage.
This year has also seen our first musical head to sea, with two casts of ‘Grease’ performing simultaneously onboard Silja Line’s Symphony and Serenade until June 2016 – directed by award-winning Director, Gary Lloyd.
We are delighted to continue our 7 year partnership with Seabourn Cruise Line, with the launch of the Encore this winter 2016; featuring an exclusive collaboration with one of the world’s favourite lyricists.
2017 will see our third BK World Cruise Cast onboard the Pacific and Sea Princess for Princess Cruises.
With over ten years’ experience in the cruising industry, Belinda King Creative Productions now produce exquisite entertainment for Seabourn (named ‘Best Entertainment at Sea’ by USA Today), Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Silja Line and European corporate events.
