Ronnie Burkett and his Daisy Theatre are back at the High Performance Rodeo with a brand-new production based on Romeo and Juliet. And trust us, you’ve never seen star-crossed lovers like this before. You will not want to miss this exclusive and limited run.

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 strip tease 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.
