The Most Horrid of Histories at the Grand Theatre

The Horrible Histories at the Grand are an eye-opening, gory, exciting and authentic theatrical experience for children and adults, like me. When I was a child I went to see Hiawatha and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with my junior school and I loved it; sitting high in the gods, ogling down at actual real life actors doing their thing on the stage.

I am privileged to have experienced a number of Grand Theatre productions and almost always some of my favourite’s have been children or teen theatre. That’s right. I am no stranger to Horrible Histories. Having previously watching The Tudors and The Stuarts, I found it a great way to spend my evening, refreshing my knowledge of Henry VIII and his unfortunate wives. Using catchy rhymes and songs the cast reminded the, mostly junior, audience which wife was executed and how they met their death in every grisly detail.

The next Horrible Histories is The Incredible Invaders and Groovy Greeks! It runs from Tuesday 7 to Saturday 11 July 2015. The Grand Theatre says:

Get ready for another exciting and educational journey through the ages when Horrible Histories return to Blackpool Grand with two new shows – Incredible Invaders and Groovy Greeks!

It’s thousands of years since the Gruesome Greeks competed in the first ever Olympic Games and the Ruthless Romans, Savage Saxons and Vicious Vikings stormed ashore on the coast of Britain. Now families can relive those horribly exciting times by coming along to Blackpool Grand to see the Birmingham Stage Company’s brand new Horrible Histories live shows!

As with their previous hugely popular productions, both these shows feature hilarious actors live on stage and 3D Bogglevision special effects! To celebrate this devilish double-bill, audiences can also save 25% off the cost of going to see both shows, and families can save with the great-value family ticket!
