Programme Information

How do you play the piano without practising? Is the triangle hard? Why is organ music so boring?

This brilliant stand-up comedy show with a difference has been entertaining people across the world for over two decades. The friendly, interactive style of Rainer Hersch takes you on a hilarious journey from ‘Every Good Boy Deserves Football’ to Grand Opera. Nobody really needs to know anything about music in advance and, frankly, nobody really learns anything from the show, but you will have a brilliant time on the way.

Suitable for children age 12+
