The Ding Dong Clambake is a New York Based singing telegram service and an ancillary wing of The Clambake, a theatre collective. We will turn messages for your loved ones into fully produced musical numbers. We perform at front doors all over the New York area. Our telegrams feature completely original music, high quality speakers and a professional singer clad in amazingly strange clothing!

Here's how it works:

You provide us with the message you wish to convey, the address of where you would like us to go and we will write an original musical telegram to perform! If you opt for a digital telegram, we will record a very professional video with the telegram and email it off to the recipient! Please submit the form below and we will swiftly reply with specifics as to how our telegrams go down and payment information. 

Profits f go towards our theatre work.  Our performance work mines the intersections of music and theatre in new surprising ways. We propose a new kind of musical theatre, a theatre of irreverence. We wish to broach difficult subjects with humor, to ring your doorbell and enter your mind-house and do a little ditty in it.
