The Curioso at Mansfield Museum Theatre show set in a curiosity shop.
‘The Curioso’ (McWheel & Munch Proprietors), is a quaint theatrical shop of curiosities in a time of it’s own which is opening it’s doors to your imagination and inviting you to enter the foolhardy, weird and wonderful world of artefacts from the chaotic & humorous life of harmless co-Proprietor Ian Munch. The silent partner Mr. McWheel never appears, as he travels far & wide in search of new curious objects to ‘flog off, but’ keeps check on the business and the less than competent Munch via telephonic contact. In the shop, Ninja Monkey; Mrs. T. Lady; The Cloaked One & The Curious Customer help Munch from the outset to reorganise the chaos into a total shambles!
Written, directed & performed by local actors Bob L; Georgia Munnion & Leon Wilmans, who met last year in Mansfield Palace’s Community Theatre, following which they formed their own theatre project called ‘Experimentrio’ and performed ‘All In The Timing’ by David Ives which was well supported & reviewed. They are joined in this show by newcomer to acting Andy Ashley, lead guitarist from the local Pink Floyd tribute band Floydian Slip.
‘The Curioso’ is intended as a fun family show, which breaks down some of the barriers between the audience and the stage and aims to involve everyone in a comfortable, friendly way. The idea to do the show has been around for some time, and the characters Ian Munch & friends have easily & eagerly to come to life now the idea has finally been realised.
‘The Curioso’ will take place on August 8th and 9th at Mansfield Museum. 7pm Start, 30 Tickets available at £5 each. All bookings will be through the Museum on (01623) 463088 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
The Curioso Characters will also be attending the Museum’s ‘Our Local Larder: Mansfield Food Past & Present’ Exhibition Launch on August 6th. This exhibition will be on during the show, so expect food & kitchenware themed curios. Refreshments will be available too.
