Dad’s Army and Boudicca – it’s Eastern Angles’ 2019 festive musical

Eastern Angles return to the Key Theatre Studio in January with their alternative to the traditional pantomime in The Famous Four & A Half Go Wild in Thetford Forest

From the writer, Harry Long, of The Ladykillers of Orton Brimbles (2017), you can expect the usual mad-cap humour and original wacky songs as Eastern Angles transport us on an adventurous time travel fuelled journey with Rupert, Nick, Fran, Alex and Dimmy the dog. The Famous Four & A Half do battle with a shady figure who has stolen their aunt’s time machine. A crazy chase visits a future Thetford by the Sea, some hipster Neolithics at their local derby, and a certain Home Guard rehearsal.

Ivan Cutting, Artistic Director at Eastern Angles, will be directing the show this year. He can’t wait to get started. “Directing the Eastern Angles Christmas show is like no other job during the year. There is a script, but it changes, and then it has to absorb the interaction with the audience, the swift costume changes that hilariously go wrong, and the addition or swops of local references for our Peterborough residency, which always bring whoops of recognition at The Key. It’s going to be a corker of a show”.

The cast of the show includes: Jason Patel, Charles Barnett, Lily Smith, Kandaka Moore who appeared with Grammy award winners Clean Bandit in their music video A&E and Edward Kaye who recently worked with the Young Shakespeare Company in Twelfth Night. The show tours to Ipswich and Woodbridge in Suffolk before touring to Peterborough’s Key Theatre Studio for a week from Tuesday 21st – Saturday 25th January 2020. A British Sign Language performance will take place on the Thursday 23rd January matinee at 2.30pm.

Tickets are now on sale at the Key Theatre Studio for The Famous Four & A Half Go Wild in Thetford Forest. Tickets are £11.50 – £15, excluding booking fees.
