Cast Vs Crew – a uniquely chaotic performance combining improv thrills with theatrical flare

Budding new theatre group Foolish Bandits are bringing their brand-new show Cast Vs Crew for its festival debut at the Buxton Fringe Festival 2019. The show sees the Cast attempt to perform an audience-chosen fairy tale while the Crew of techies throw everything they’ve got at the Cast to try and stop them. The show sees many unexpected twists and turns as both teams attempt to outdo the other using a mixture of improv skills, theatre know-how and (most importantly) sheer determination. With audience involvement encouraged and no-one knowing where the next plot twist will come from, Foolish Bandits retell the world’s favourite fairy tales in a way never seen before!

After winning the award for ‘Best Ensemble’ and having their lighting techie given the ‘Best Tech Design’ award at the University of Sheffield’s Platform Performance Festival, Foolish Bandits are stepping outside of their hometown of Sheffield and making a name for themselves in the festival scene. They will be performing for the first time ever at the Buxton Fringe Festival on the 5th, 6th, 20th and 21st July at 22.15 (every night) at the venue Underground at the Arts Centre.
