About the show

The Daisy Theatre gang is back with their irreverent hijinks as they take on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet in Little Willy. Burlesque star Dolly Wiggler starts the show with an Elizabethan striptease in this riotously funny improvised mash-up of one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays. All the leading ladies of the Daisy ensemble battle for the role of Juliet, including faded diva Esme Massengill in a boozy interpretation of the lovesick ingénue. Beloved audience favourites Schnitzel and Mrs. Edna Rural are back in supporting roles, and adding to the fun and mayhem, The Bard himself joins The Daisy Theatre cast for a twisted retelling of this timeless tale.

More Info

“Similar to what I have done with my version of A Christmas Carol and Little Dickens, in Little Willy, the beloved characters of The Daisy Theatre will earnestly attempt their (perhaps miscast) roles in the familiar piece of Romeo and Juliet. And yes, the prologue will be Dolly Wiggler doing an Elizabethan strip number, as is the Daisy tradition.”
