There is a new show in town! Almost sold to Cirque du Soleil, this sideshow act is dreaming of the West End.
But it’s a rocky road for a singing goldfish who wants to play the lead in Les Miserables. Along with his hapless scientist friend he will warm your heart with his dulcet baritone voice in this new musical comedy. You gotta see it to believe it.
Combining a mixture of catchy songs, very silly jokes and a healthy dose of sight gags, the Human & Fish duo will have to figure out how to navigate the treacherous waters of show-business and make this dream a reality. And as expected, nothing goes to plan.
The work of FLYING DUTCHMAN Theatre is characterised by its fairytale-like quality. Combining the virtues of different art forms, their stories are told through puppetry, music, physical theatre and new writing.
Press for this production
a successful funny yet obscure and quirky must-see comedy show.★★★★London Pub Theatres
Tice Oakfield plays Alex, in a costume that is genius in its simplicity. If there was a Bafta for fin acting, Oakfield deserves it – he keeps the audience in fits of giggles with his expressive fin work and has a voice to die for. Leo Elso also impresses as Peter… the chemistry between man and fish is fantastic. This is theatre at its silliest, The Astonishing Singing Fish! is uplifting nonsense of the highest quality, an energetic and uplifting festival of the ridiculous that will leave only the coldest of fish with a straight face. ★★★★Fairy Powered Productions
The success of this production stems from Alex and Peter’s tight-knit polished performances. Alex tells us ‘I’m just a goldfish with this incredible dream’, a simple concept, being hugely demanding to deliver, yet with a lot of underwater paddling, they triumph. Unapologetic, carefree, fun-filled entertainment for all ages. Southwark News
