The Daisy Theatre Is Back With A Twisted Retelling Of Romeo And Juliet ‘Little Willy’

7 Dec

The Daisy Theatre is back with their take on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet in Little Willy. If you haven’t attended one of Ronnie Burkett’s shows, you are missing out on fun night out. Burlesque star Dolly Wiggler starts the show with an Elizabethan striptease in this riotously funny improvised mash-up of one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays. All the leading ladies of the Daisy ensemble battle for the role of Juliet, including faded diva Esme Massengill in a boozy interpretation of the lovesick ingénue.  Beloved audience favourites Schnitzel and Mrs. Edna Rural are back in supporting roles, and adding to the fun and mayhem, The Bard himself joins The Daisy Theatre cast for a twisted retelling of this timeless tale. Tickets start from $35 and are now available online at The Cultch. The production runs from January 10 – 29, 2023.   Tickets to this show would make a great gift of experience this holiday season.
