Twelfth Night

Ad Hoc Players present…

Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night

Unrequited love. Cross dressing. Mistaken identity. Drunken debauchery. Just like any other night in Illyria.

Twelfth Night is a fast-paced romantic comedy with several interwoven plots of romance, mistaken identities and practical jokes all set in the 70’s punk era. Separated from her twin brother Sebastian in a shipwreck, Viola disguises herself as a boy, calls herself Cesario, and becomes a servant to the Duke Orsino. He sends her to woo the Countess Olivia on his behalf, but the Countess falls in love with Cesario. Meanwhile Olivia’s uncle, Sir Toby Belch, gets drunk with his friend Sir Andrew Aguecheek and they play a trick on Malvolio, Olivia’s steward. Eventually Sebastian turns up and causes even more confusion, chaos and comedy.

February Mini Fest – Gareth P Jones

Gareth P Jones’ lively interactive performances combine irreverent humour, unbridled energy and original songs inspired by his books (and played on a whatever instrument come to hand.) He works hard to demonstrate that reading, writing and story-telling should be, above all else, fun!

Recommended for ages 7+

February Mini Fest – Really Big Pants Theatre Company “PLUNDERED!”

Ahoy there!  Really Big Pants Theatre Company are setting sail for Brentwood again – this time with PLUNDERED!

Whilst searching for hidden treasure, a famously selfish pirate captain has left a once beautiful tropical island littered with rubbish and its inhabitants struggling to survive.  It’s up to Maggie and Roy to save it.  The trouble is… they’re REALLY not friends.  Teleported from their school trip at a maritime museum into the centre of a swashbuckling adventure in the Amazon, can they learn to work together, win the race to find the legendary gold – and restore the place to its natural glory?

Can YOU defeat this dastardly litterbug pirate…?

And come dressed as a fearsome member of his crew if you dare!  Arrrrrrrr!

February Mini Fest – Maz Evans

 

Maz Evans presents a fun-filled family fiasco as she uses the world of Who Let the Gods Out? to introduce Greek Mythology – as you’ve never seen it before.

Packed with giggles and games, this theatre presentation features Maz’s quest to find the King or Queen of the Gods from her willing *and talented* adult audience members.

The winners will then face the toughest challenge known to immortal kind. They must battle each other in Maz’s Mythological Mallet, the word association game that separates Gods from mortals…using a large squeaky hammer.
