We all want to meet people from history. The trouble is that everyone is dead! But head to the Grand Opera House this autumn (Tuesday 30th October to Saturday 3rd November) and you’ll see them brought to life with hilarious results at Horrible Histories live! Using actors and ground-breaking 3D special effects, these two astounding shows promise to entertain and mesmerise the audience as historical figures and events come alive on stage and hover at their fingertips! Choose from these two special shows…
TERRIBLE TUDORS – From the horrible Henries to the end of evil Elizabeth, hear the legends (and the lies!) about the torturing Tudors. Find out the fate of Henry’s headless wives and his punch up with the Pope. Meet Bloody Mary and see Ed fall dead in his bed. Survive the Spanish Armada as it sails into the audience! Wholly accessible, educating, entertaining and enjoyable, HORRIBLE HISTORIES live on stage is a tour de force! BBC.co.uk * * * * *
AWFUL EGYPTIANS – From the fascinating Pharaohs to the power of the pyramids, discover the foul facts of death and decay with the meanest mummies in Egypt. Are you ready to rumble with Ramesses the Great? Dare you enter through the Gates of the Afterlife? It’s the history of Egypt with the nasty bits left in! The auditorium seems fit to combust spontaneously in an explosion of joy and excitement!
