Horrible Histories Live: Awful Egyptians & Terrible Tudors, Belgrade Theatre, October 23-26.
Get ready for guts and gore when The Birmingham Stage Company returns to the Belgrade with a Horrible Histories half-term double-bill. Promising pre-Halloween hilarity for all the family, this year’s tour will bring to life foul pharaohs and rotten royals, combining thrilling live theatre with groundbreaking 3D special effects. From the horrible Henries to the end of evil Elizabeth’s reign, Terrible Tudors will lay bare the legends and lies of a dastardly dynasty. Find out the fate of Henry’s headless wives, and what happened in his punch-up with the Pope. Meet the brutal Bloody Mary, see young Ed fall dead in his bed, and survive the Spanish Armada as it sails into the audience. Then in Awful Egyptians, you’ll discover the power of the pyramids and meet history’s meanest mummies, learning foul facts about death and decay along the way.
Are you ready to rumble with Rameses the Great? Dare you enter through the Gates of the Afterlife? After you’ve experienced the ugly side of Ancient Egypt, you definitely won’t be in de-Nile about its nasty bits. Recommended for curious kids aged 5 to 105, these side-splittingly silly shows present the putrid past as you’ve never seen it before. It’s history with all the gory bits left in.
