Jonathan Roxmouth goes Topsy TurvyPieter Toerien Productions
Jonathan Roxmouth is presenting his new one-man show Topsy Turvy in the Studio Theatre, Montecasino from 4 July to 5 August.
Gilbert and Sullivan never saw it coming! Jonathan Roxmouth (The Phantom of the Opera, JC Superstar, Hats Off! and A Handful of Keys) is about to invade the Studio Theatre, Montecasino, with a wealth of ridiculous characters in his new one-man show, Topsy Turvy.
In it, Roxmouth revisits the comic songs and verse of British duo Gilbert & Sullivan who were responsible for such evergreens as H.M.S. Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance and The Mikado to name a few. Be warned though - this is no "traditional" recital...
In Topsy Turvy, Roxmouth takes the audience on a laugh-out-loud ride through the hysterical world of G&S. These classic songs are dusted off and given a modern twist for a brand new audience. Come swash your buckle with the Pirate King, giggle with the Three Little Maids (yes - all three of them) or even do a high kick with the motor-mouthed Major-General in an evening of classic English nostalgia.
As a bonus, there is also a lesson in how to write your own Gilbertian Operetta in the mix. If you have never heard of them, this is the perfect introduction to their work that the rest of the die-hard Gilbertians out there will love to see and hear again.
Whether you know of Gilbert & Sullivan or not, this is a must-see for all fans of musical schizophrenia. One man. Over 15 characters. 8 operettas.
