Theatre Tropicana on Location - The Lost World

Aug 28, 3:00pm - Aug 28, 5:00pm

Old Town Quarry
51 South Road
Weston-super-Mare,  BS23 2 Map

Four intrepid explorers, led by the redoubtable Professor Challenger, travel to an uncharted plateau in South America following a few scant directions scribbled in a sketch book. They find flora and fauna beyond their wildest dreams, become involved in tribal warfare between apemen and indigenous humans, and encounter terrifying dinosaurs previously believed to be extinct. But when their camera is destroyed in an accident what evidence can they produce to prove that these creatures actually exist? Unless, of course, they bring live specimens back to London in “unbreakable” crates to reveal to an astounded public. What could possibly go wrong?

Illyria has an unmatched reputation for innovation in the open-air touring theatre sector, where they are the first company to tackle a show in this genre and of this scope. Prehistoric thrills, monster laughs and life-size dinosaurs abound in the must-see show of the summer!

Recommended for children from 8+ and their families.
Running time: 1 hour 50 minutes including interval
Tickets also available on the door

Living Spit present 'Six Wives of Henry VIII' for Theatre Tropicana

Mon 18 - Wed 20 Sept / 7:30pm / £12 / Age 11+

Howard Coggins looks like Henry VIII. There's no escaping that. Stu Mcloughlin doesn't really look like any of the wives, but he's going to give it a go.

After their previous self-funded two-man historical drama is savaged in the press, Howard and Stu are at their wits' end. Then they hit upon an idea for a show that could change everything...

Living Spit's original hit show is back by popular demand. Join the throngs who have already succumbed to this confection of live music, embroidery and barbie dolls. You may just laugh your head off!

Tropicana Weston
Marine Parade
Weston-super-Mare,  BS23 1BE Map

Luke Wright presents 'The Toll' for Theatre Tropicana

Fri 22 Sept / 8pm / £10 / Age 14+

After the Fringe Fest winning success of What I Learned from Johnny Bevan, Luke Wright is back to subject the English language to a series of degrading new tricks, all for your amusement.

Featuring a selection of poems from The Toll (Penned in the Margins, 2017) this show tours the flat-roofed pubs and half-bought couches of Brexit Britain. It struggles with doubt, duty and a score of half-cut nights spent shouting impotently at Question Time.

Spend an evening with a raconteur at the top of his game, as he spits out visceral, inventive verse that swears, bleeds and sings.
