A Classical Cabaret

A Classical Cabaret


Peter Street,


By Shakespeare Switched.

A Classical Cabaret is a comedy piece that fuses together some of Shakespeare's most famous scenes and sonnets, dealing with cheeky tales and dark secrets in equal measure. We predominately play with gender, sexuality and genre to create a unique and wonderful world. The story of Hamlet is transformed in rap, sonnets are transformed into Jazz songs and we bring the Prince’s watchmen into the world of Game of Thrones.

If Shakespeare isn’t usually for you, then we challenge you to come along and see if we can change your mind, this is anything but a typical Shakespeare show.

Suitable for ages 16+.
