String quartet Bowjangles is to make an appearance at the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds next week with their musical journey through myths, folklore, legends and a portal in a cello case in “Excalibow”.
The audience will be able to take part in the quest to find the most priceless relic of all – a magical violin bow known as “Excalibow”. You can expect tales of monsters, ancient gods, historical figures and characters of pure fantasy in this action-packed show, all presented in Bowjangles’ own inimitable style full of comedy, energy, and almost every musical genre you can imagine.
Bowjangles are a singing, dancing, comedy, cabaret, variety, theatrical string quartet.
They have travelled the world extensively, performing in theatres and halls, at arts festivals and street festivals, in schools, hospitals, the occasional prison and even in a forest in the dead of night. In 2018 they won the “Spirit of the Fringe” award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and in 2019 they were nominated for the Rural Touring Awards “Best Performance”.
“Excalibow” is the newest show from the group, following previous productions: “Bowlympics” – their first to bring their musical performances together in an overarching thread; “On The Box” – their version of a morning TV show complete with cooking segments, news, weather and a late night horror film; and “A Christmas Carol” – mashing up Dickens and pantomime dames.
“Excalibow” is at Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds on Friday, March 6, at 7.30pm. Tickets are on sale via the Box Office, call 01284 769505, book online at www.theatreroyal.org/shows/bowjangles-presents-excalibow/ or visit the theatre in person.
