Barbershopera II by Rob Castell and Tom Sadler
Directed by Sarah Tipple
Performed by Rob Castell, Tom Sadler, Lara Stubbs and Pete Sorel-Cameron
This award-winning musical comedy tells the unlikely story of a Catalan matador who inherits a Norfolk barbershop. A delightfully madcap show packed with laughs, tears and stampeding cows – all in four-part harmony.
Will our young hero manage to enchant the locals with his continental flair? How will he fare against local favourite Trevor Sorbet in a high-stakes coiffeurs' cut-off? Can he win the heart of the beautiful town crier? And will he ever leave Norfolk again?
