Fringe REVIEW: ShakeItUp: The Improvised Shakespeare Show - ★★★★★

Shakespeare hasn't written anything new for an age, so we thought we'd give him a hand... Using his language, your audience suggestions, and our overactive imaginations, we create a brand-new Shakespeare play live on stage, complete with live music, songs and plenty of laughs. Join ShakeItUp for an evening of bard-based bedlam! 'Quick witted, inexhaustible and absolutely hysterical' ***** ( 'Laugh out-loud hilarious... a great night out' **** ( 'An authentic, if strange, work of Shakespeare' **** (

Ailie (Age 14) - ★★★★★

"I rate it 5 stars because they did a really good performance where they were just making it up on the spot and even if it did go a bit wrong the actors helped each other and played the character they were meant to play to help them."

Adelyn (Age 12) - ★★★★★

"5 stars excellent, loved watching them improvise!"

Stewart - ★★★★★

"So funny and clever! Excellent performances and a fantastic ensemble. The company are also very good at incoporating audience suggestions - including lines of dialogue throughout the show. Loved it!"
