He was Rome’s greatest general. She was Egypt’s rich and beautiful queen. Together, they were the world’s most famous couple.
Luckily, all the icky love stuff has been written about by Plutarch and Shakespeare, so this brand new family-friendly musical can concentrate on Antony and Cleopatra’s lesser known ice cream eating competition, noodle-fishing and games of knock-and-run.
But there’s still an empire to conquer, and ships to sink, and a poisonous snake to avoid. Can Antony and Cleopatra turn back time? Or will that annoy the God of Time, who really hates people doing that?
Ant & Cleo is a re-telling of the classic story using a sweeping orchestral score, stunning design, and even more cheap gags than the epic Troy Story which shook the rafters of the Civic Hall in 2013. Performed with pupils from three schools alongside professional actor/singers and musicians.
