Snow White and Romeo & Juliet

Date: 29 September 2017 at 7:30PM
Details:

We are extremely pleased to welcome back the hugely talented Nuworks theatre company from Melbourne, Australia. Nuworks has performed for the past twenty eight years under the artistic direction of David Dunn. They tour the World with their innovative, original productions alongside classics from Shakespeare to Brecht and include contemporary musicals, such as RENT and Pink Floyd's THE WALL. This year they will treat us to two one act plays;

Romeo and Juliet

Shakespeare’s much loved, heavily edited and recontextualised play but otherwise unchanged to produce a piece of theatre that will appeal to younger and older audiences alike. It is complemented with a number of contemporary, largely up tempo songs from Pink, Coldplay and Muse and accompanied by choreography.

 

Snow White

This is a brand new musical adaptation of the tale. Not a panto, it’s a little more sophisticated than a pantomine but is faithful to the original in most respects: there’s Snow White, the Wicked Queen, and the Huntsman. The seven dwarves have morphed into the Hip Hop Brothers and there’s a few extra characters. Don’t worry, there’s a poisoned apple and a Prince and a true loves kiss and a Happy Ever After.
