Living Spit present 'Tortoise vs Hare' for Theatre Tropicana

Barry Hare, Wrington running champ. Fit, popular and, above all, fast. Toby ''Tortoise'' Gollop, eater of doughnuts.

Look up 'relaxed' in the dictionaryn and you'll see his picture. Two very different men. One running club, and the race to end all races. Told entirely in rhyme and song, this promises to be an epic tale of romance, redemption and rural running rivalry that will leave you breathless.

Illyria present 'The Emperor's New Clothes' for Theatre Tropicana

Sat 15 July / 3:30pm and 7pm
£13 Adult / £9 Concession / £38 Family of four / £45 Family of five

Based on the timeless Hans Christian Andersen story, Illyria first performed this show in 2000 when it was Critic's choice at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and attracted multiple 5-star reviews on a sellout UK tour.

The Emperor is a lovely man, but he's not the best judge of character. What keeps him sane is the monthly Grand Parade at which he wears his newest outfit. When two swindlers spin a yarn and everyone is taken in, what price will he have to pay? Will he end up losing his crown jewels?
All will be revealed in Illyria's cheekiest show ever!

(NB - there is no nudity in the production. Although one of the actors may be a little chilly...)

The Reaper Bar is really looking forward to getting wet 'n' wild in the first 'Tropicana School Disco' coming Saturday July 22nd!! Live music from our Tropicana House Band (see below), DJ's, party games and a whole load of fun is planned in this iconic venue. Fancy Dress is positively encouraged in whatever outfit you want!!!

It gives us great pleasure to announce that we have a Tropicana House Band!!! Yes, we have pulled the finest musicians from Weston and created a band that will entertain you all night with the funkiest, danciest, craziest tunes to make this School Disco THE place to be this Summer!
The amazing Miss Sarah Eden-Winn will be once again gracing us with her presence after her amazing performance at last year's Hazy Days. Joining her on stage will be the mountain that is the maestro of the six string Mr Graeme Foy master of the low end will be Mr Matthew Venn, with Mr Ivories Mr Paul Quinn and the most audacious tub thumper Mr Tim Price keeping everyone in time 🙂
There will be prizes for fancy dress, there will be laughter at the expense of people's fancy dress, but this will mainly be a night where the grown ups of Weston can reminisce about when they were young, maybe rekindle a school romance (or realise how badly they got it wrong!) but ultimately come and have an amazing night with an amazing band and so much fun, you may need to take some home with you....;)

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!

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.
