a new Musical Comedy
postponed until 2021
“hilarious from the opening number, an entirely convincing bonkers world” ★★★★★ London Pub Theatres
“a delightful and playfully sexy new musical. the full-on Las Vegas style finale, ‘What Would Julie Andrews Do?’ sends the audience out into the night on a whoosh of feathers, fantasy and fun” ★★★★ The Spy in the Stalls
“great fun show, a lot of heart, very very entertaining. I do know a really good show when I see one and Tickle is just that” ★★★★ LondonTheatre1
“frothy fun to be enjoyed, performed with zest and zing and will put a smile on your face” ★★★★ BOYZ
“genuinely funny, camp humour brimming with innuendo and moments of downright filth, the audience were lapping it up. It’s a good score too, they all sound good, lyrics comedy gold, getting swept up in the fun of it all” THEATRE WEEKLY
“attractively tuneful score, it’s all really rather good fun” THERE OUGHT TO BE CLOWNS
“the show is a romp, enjoyable for its zany humour, its attractive performers and the inventive lyrics and music” MUSICAL THEATRE REVIEW
DAVINA scouts scallies. Working for the TINA TICKLE EMPIRE she’s on the lookout for some good lookers to compete in the sport of ENDURANCE TICKLING. It’s really, really, well paid, and for subscription members only, so why wouldn’t you? Our 2 lads are drawn into this lucrative sport, and enjoy the financial gains, opportunities and the sort of fame only dreamed about by their mates on the estate.
The Tina Tickle Empire adamantly claims it’s a “wholesome sport”. Where’s the catch?
Tickling. Innocent fun. But when a lot of money can be made online is everything as it seems or will lives be ruined and hearts broken?
Inspired by the documentary TICKLED
and loosely based on fact
this new musical comedy explores the bizarre World of Competitive Endurance Tickling.
