What's on in Kent: Show all


Bootworks Theatre: JukeBoxes

Two beautiful 1950’s Jukeboxes sit side-by-side. Watch them spring to life as two performers (hidden inside) re-create classic pop music videos in a lip-syncing musical medley. Using props, masks, puppets and a terrible selection of wigs, the kitsch duo bring to life some of our favourite celebrity pop-stars from past and present. The Beatles, Sinead O’Connor, Miley Cyrus, Stevie Wonder and Adele all make cameos - and audiences are encouraged to sing or dance along with the show. Whatever your age, there’s a little something for everyone.

Gilbert (No Sullivan)

The Foundry Group: Gilbert (No Sullivan)

A rollicking adaptation of three outrageous, absurd and hilarious stories (and two Bab Ballads) by the master of Victorian black comedy Sir W. S. Gilbert, brought lovingly to the stage by The Ornate Johnsons’ David Mounfield and Brian Mitchell. Now immortalised for his partnership with composer Sir Arthur Sullivan, Gilbert was, in his own right, a renowned playwright and comic writer and, like Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear, a master of “Nonsense” verse. As a regular contributor to Punch and Fun magazines he produced many fantastic stories with his trademark dark humour that would not seem out of place in a collection by Woody Allen, while his uproarious poems known as The Bab Ballads have remained almost constantly in print. For the first time, and on the 180th anniversary of his birth, three of his funniest tales and two of the best-loved Bab Ballads take to the stage in this inventive new adaptation. Gilbert (No Sullivan) is the perfect night out for dedicated ‘Savoyards’ and a great introduction for the uninitiated to one of England’s best-loved and wittiest writers. Suitable for 7 yrs +

The Three Musketeers

Three Half Pints: The Three Musketeers

Chaos, mayhem and slapstick stupidity reign supreme as the Three Half Pints swish their swords, buff their boots and flourish their feathers in their most ridiculous adventure yet.

Will they defeat the dastardly evil-doers?
Will they save the damsel in distress?
Will they read the book before writing this show?

Nobody knows… but you can bet the CBeebies favourites will provide a hilarious slapstick adventure of chivalry, swordplay and suddenly falling over.

The seventeenth century has never been so silly!
