Rossini meets Rock 'n' Roll in this 1950s Brylcreem and Teddy Boy makeover. Figaro, the famous Barber, finds himself in a mad world populated by strange nuns, a surprisingly amusing cop and a robber who stops at nothing. With superb singing, it's a battle of wits, witnesses and half-wits, bordering on hysteria - a joyously 'retro' refashioning of a classic, providing oodles of family fun.Performers John Furlong, Patrick Ashcroft, Richard Immerglock, Matthew Quirk, Nicola Smedley, Aurore Lacabe, Phillip Canner, Tony Harris, Jezz James, Elizabeth McCall, Harriet Campbell, Joseph Morgan, Ian Mass-Harris.
