Opera At The Casa
La Bohème – Flat Pack Music
Saturday 29th September 7.30pm
Tickets – £10
We’re delighted to welcome back Flat Pack Music to The Casa for Puccini’s unforgettable story of love and tragedy between Rodolfo and seamstress Mimi set in 19th century Paris against a backdrop of ill health and poverty. Will the flame between the two lovers survive or flicker and die? Flat Pack Music are a professional opera company who sing in English to live musical accompaniment.
Anyone who came to The Casa earlier this year to see their performance of Cosi Fan Tutte can testify how breath-takingly great they were. And if you’re not convinced here’s a 5 star review for La Boheme from North West End:
‘You’ve got to know what you’re doing to take opera in a slightly different direction and Flat Pack Music have that in droves as this superb production perfectly fills the void between traditional opera and the more recent musical interpretation of Rent, with the English language translation adding to the audience’s appreciation of superbly performed arias from the cast.’
Mark Davoren, North West End

GAME OVER is a comedy musical about two men who take their own lives on the same night and compete in a game-show for the right to stay dead – It’s X-Factor meets judgement day in this unique, site-specific experience.
At the start of the play we see them arrive at ‘Limbo’, a dark place populated by lost souls (the audience) and ‘Death’. Death explains that due to a clerical error, only one of them will be allowed to die – and that the other will have to go back to ‘their living hell on Earth’.
To decide who dies, both characters are forced to play a series of game-show style rounds to see who had the more miserable existence, thereby showing themselves worthy of the Grim Reaper’s scythe. As the play unfolds, game-show devices are used to uncover the truth about each character’s back-story and ask them to explore the reasons for their current predicament.
The play explores some issues around suicide and depression in a way that is entertaining and original, humorous and anarchic.
Satan and Mrs Smith
Thursday 1st November at 8pm
Mrs Smith has been a good woman all her life. On the day she meets her maker, it all goes a bit wrong. It’s OK, she can handle anything but Satan can’t wait for her to get out of Hell and take her nice ways with her – before the other occupants start getting used to them.

Marilyn Monroe. Did we really know who she was? Did she? This playful and poignant play is Marilyn’s story, told by her – alone in her dressing room. Not the girl in that white dress with the pouting red lips and the curvaceous figure but Marilyn stripped back and bare – just an ordinary girl telling her story.
