Groovy Greeks and Incredible Invaders - Horrible Histories

The Horrible Histories presents the Groovy Greeks and Incredible Invaders at Aylesbury’s Waterside Theatre from Tuesday June 28 to Saturday July 2.

Thousands of years after the Ruthless Romans, Savage Saxons and Vicious Vikings stormed ashore on the coast of Britain and the Gruesome Greeks competed in the first ever Olympic Games, you can relive those horribly exciting times by bringing your family to see Birmingham Stage Company’s brand new Horrible Histories stage shows.

In Incredible Invaders the Celts are crunched when the Ruthless Romans invaded Britain. Can crazy Caratacus Can save the nation? Hide behind Hadrian’s Wall and witness the Savage Saxons smash their way in. Can you stop King Alfred burning his buns? Discover who’s at Sutton Hoo and survive the Vicious Vikings as they sail into the audience. It’s a thousand year journey with Incredible Invaders.

Groovy Greeks takes us from savage Sparta to angry Athens to discover the truth about growing up in Greece. Take on the Trojans and pummel the Persians! Compete in the first ever Olympic Games and appear in the very first play! Meet your match with the Minotaur and be zapped by Zeus! Hold on tight as you gate-crash the gruesome and Groovy Greeks!

As with their previously hugely popular Horrible Histories productions both these shows use actors and 3D Bogglevision special effects.

Writer and director Neal Foster said: “Both shows feature special amazing 3D effects that provide a spectacular way for both children and adults to enter these extraordinary historical periods.”

Tickets are available from £14.65. For more information or to book tickets in advance call the box office on 084 871 7607 or visit www.atgtickets.com/aylesbury.
