Fringe hit 'The Cabinet of Madame Fanny Du Thé' starts tour in SheffieldPosted by: Annie Williams
Riddlestick Theatre brings its riotous musical comedy celebrating curiosity and imagination to the city this year.
Bristol-based theatre group Riddlestick Theatre kick-off their spring tour with a two-night showcase of their interactive musical comedy 'The Cabinet of Madame Fanny Du Thé' at the Theatre Deli in February.
Popular for their weird and wonderful stories and enchanting live music, Riddlestick aim to make audiences laugh, think and tap their toes at their inventive shows.
The comical musical invites the audience to peek inside Madame Fanny Du Thé’s cabinet of curiosities, unsatisfied with staying still, the eccentric 18th century voyager Fanny has ventured across seas and explored the world.
Audience are called to choose from the weird and wonderful souvenirs in her cabinet of curiosities and for whichever curio they choose, Fanny and her servants perform the elaborate tale behind it. From battling with pirates to partying with Marie Antoinette, Fanny's (allegedly) done it all.
Following last year’s performances, the show received rave reviews from critics and audience and following a production in Edinburgh, was chosen as one of The Guardian's 'Best Shows at the Edinburgh Festival 2018'.
After spending time living in the Steel City, the co-artistic directiors, Kate Stokes and Thomas Manson and producer Jake McKeown can't wait to return with the rest of the company to perform The Cabinet of Madame Fanny Du Thé.
The production is on at Theatre Deli, located at 202 Eyre Street, Sheffield, S1 4QZ, on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th February at 19:45.
Tickets cost £9 (£8 concession) and can be purchased online here or on the door and is recommended for ages 12+.
