Writer and Director, Sian Meredith brings Westeros to the stage through parody and pop music.

There's more than one 'song of ice and fire' with this Game of Thrones satirical musical.

Butter Side Up Theatre Company returns to Theatre Deli, Sheffield with an original parody musical of the hit TV show, Game of Thrones.

Writer and Director, Sian Meredith brings Westeros to life with a healthy dose of bitter sarcasm, dry wit, and enough Game of Thrones trivia to keep any fan happy. 

 

As well as poking fun at the mistakes of the previously-beloved TV show, Game of Thrones: The Spoof Musical adds even more to the tale with a medley of pop hits from the 80’s, 90’s and now. 

 

Join Jon, Sansa, Danaerys and Cersei as they sing through their feelings, fighting the White Walkers as well as each other. Expect songs from Ke$ha, Mika, and Rihanna to liven up the drab scenes of Winter and ruined character development. 

 

Butter Side Up Theatre Company are no strangers to taking the mick, having performed Batman: A Spoof Musical to sell out audiences in 2017. 

 

“Rehearsals have been filled with laughter,” says writer and director Sian Meredith.

 

“We bonded as a cast over the things we loved and loathed about the TV show, and now, working hard to bring the silliness to stage is even better.

 

“Pop music is so light and fun and such the opposite to the usual tone of Westeros that it felt like the perfect genre to display the characters’ hidden feelings.”

 

Game of Thrones: The Spoof Musical will be performed at Theatre Deli, Sheffield on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st March 2020. Doors open at 7:00pm and the show begins at 7:30pm. Book tickets online from £10 or buy on the door for £12. Tickets are available at www.buttersideuptheatre.com. Accompanying carers are eligible for a free ticket with valid ID.
