New Old Friends were commissioned by Theatre Royal Bath to produce this great new musical comedy show which is now touring the country.
Silly Songs of Shakespeare is a show that does what it says on the tin: there are songs, they are silly and they are based on Shakespeare. Spend an evening with Fearg & The Sonnettes while they serenade you with hilarious “synopsongs” of some of Will’s most famous works, or illuminate a weird corner of Shakespeare’s world with their witty and catchy tunes. Highlights include The RP R&J Rap, The Kings’ Song, Hey Nonny Nonny, and The De Dum Dance. You can watch the Hilarious Hamlet here.
‘Silly Songs of Shakespeare is a refreshingly humorous look at the works of Shakespeare from 4 people with oodles of talent and a passion who have clever lyrics, great music and stupid amounts of talent. This is fabulous entertainment for anyone who likes to be entertained – those who get and those who don’t get Shakespeare. It touches you all.’ Kate Cross, Director – the egg at Theatre Royal Bath
