    "I do love nothing in the world so well as you. Is not that strange?"Join us for this hilarious, bold, and bittersweet show featuring love, deception, confrontations, and second chances.
    Suitable for all ages, enjoy a perfect summer’s evening with Shakespeare’s most enduring romantic comedy showcasing a vivacious ensemble, razor-sharp wit, and live music. Sun & Moon Theatre are delighted to be showcasing it at St Austell Arts Centre!

    Sun & Moon Theatre will be touring this summer with a joyous, vibrant production of Much Ado About Nothing, one of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies.

    It's 1945, the war has ended, and Messina’s young men have returned ready for peace, celebration and … romance?
    Hero and Claudio are in love and engaged to be married, while Beatrice and Benedick are in a perpetual ‘merry war’, engaged in battles of wits and wills. But not everyone has come back unscathed, not all scars are visible, and the spread of misinformation has its consequences ...

    Reviews of past shows:
    ★★★★★ "Creative genius … a magical production. I can't wait to see what happens next!"
    ★★★★ "Shakespeare at its best. Catch this dynamic theatre company, whether you are a fan of Shakespeare or not … you soon will be!"
    ★★★★ " A summer’s delight … charming and funny."
    ★★★★ 'Such a talented cast’
    "This production succeeded in magnificent style. Boasting hilarity and heart in equal measure, Sun & Moon harnessed the comedy’s madcap energy while foregrounding the very human, very relatable relationships that make this play tick."

    The Daniel Smith Blues DuoThe Daniel Smith Blues Duo - (Daniel Smith & Pete Emery)
    An unrivalled duo of British blues, with Daniel Smith being described as: “A serious challenger to Jools Holland as the UK's number 1 boogie pianist' (Blues in Britain) and Pete Emery (guitar) just freshly back from Canada, playing with The Blues Band on their Farewell Tour.

    Together as The Daniel Smith Blues Duo, Daniel and Pete certainly know how to deliver an incredibly varied, personable, informative - also humorous - set of good-time infectious music and a great night out!

    Collectively, they put on a dynamic, awe-inspiring and warm show of brilliant blues & boogie-woogie.
    Mature, sensitive, responsive, respectful and funny... they combine a great on-stage rapport and enthusiasm for their music with fantastic, foot-tapping music.

    Daniel expertly guides his audience through the great boogie-woogie & blues music, explaining narratives and revealing the essence of some of the classic numbers we all know and love.
    His accompanying autobiographical anecdotes - usually self-mocking - add a delightful twist to the stories; whilst some of his musicianship is simply jaw-dropping.

    With BBC Radio 2 appearances; international festivals; tours with Chicago blues masters; 18 albums; and numerous blues awards nominations… this is a class act which brings great joy - replete with a real, authentic, good-time, speakeasy feel.
    A very special evening awaits!

    Paulus -Music of Victoria WoodVictoria Wood was one of the UK's greatest comedians, playwrights and actresses. Much of her best work is vividly, irresistibly and hilariously brought back to life in “Looking For Me Friend”.

    Victoria Wood was one of the UK's greatest comedians, playwrights and actresses. Much of her best work is vividly, irresistibly and hilariously brought back to life in “Looking For Me Friend”,

    The show is performed and presented as a loving tribute to his idol by the celebrated Cabaret Performer and TV Personality Paulus (BBC’s All Together Now), as he enters enters his 30th year in entertainment.

    Joined on-stage by sought-after Musical Director, and old friend, Michael Roulston (Fascinating Aida, Julie, Madly, Deeply), together the two prove what many have known for decades: that it takes two men to do the work of one woman – half as well!

    Initially curated for the Edinburgh Festival 2020Paulus will remind us of many of Victoria’s best-loved songs including ‘It Would Never Have Worked’, ‘Reincarnation’ and, of course, the classic, epic ‘Ballad of Barry & Freda (Let’s Do It)’, as well as some of her lesser-known and more poignant compositions.

    As well as the songs, Paulus explores the musicality of Victoria’s sketches and catchphrases, the northern accent and the modern ‘Polari’ that has evolved amongst her legions of fans through the quoting of her enormous body of work.

    Directed by multi-award-winning cabaret star and close friend Sarah-Louise Young (An Evening Without Kate Bush; Julie Madly Deeply)Looking For Me Friend is a nostalgic evening of entertainment filled with love, laughter and fabulous memories for Victoria Wood fans.
    It also serves as the perfect ‘Beginners Guide’ for audiences new to her work.

    This is a personal story from a life-long fan. Paulus' show Looking For Me Friend is warm, relatable, relevant and incredibly funny; much like Victoria Wood herself was.

    ‘I loved the show.’ Adele Anderson, Fascinating Aida
    “Impeccable comic flair” Time Out
    “A most enjoyable evening...highly amusing” Sunday Express
    “King of Cabaret” The Stage
    “The kind of chap you could invite round for a cup of tea” Edinburgh Evening News

    Paulus aka Paul L Martin has been performing in theatre and cabaret for 30 years.
    Trained in musical theatre, he has won awards for his acting, producing and promoting work within the fields. He has performed across the world, including Berlin, Paris, Melbourne, Rome, New York, Dublin, Nicaragua and extensively around the UK.
    He is best-known to many as the hard-to-impress judge on BBC’s award-winning TV show, All Together Now, as well as previously working as a talent judge, mentor and presenter for Channe l4 and Sky Television.

    Suzi Ruffell: Snappy

    Suzi Ruffell likes things snappy: her stand up, her decisions and her suits.

    A multi-award nominated comedian, Suzi's brand new show is all about settling down (but not settling), becoming a mother (without becoming mumsy) and still worrying about everything (of course she is, have you seen the news?!).

    Her last tour, 'Dance Like Everyone Is Watching', received great critical acclaim and was recorded as an Amazon special. Suzi has also appeared on numerous shows such as Live At The Apollo, The Jonathan Ross Show, QI, The Last Leg, and Womanhood, to name but a few.

    Suzi is also known for her hugely popular podcasts 'Like Minded Friends', with fellow comedian Tom Allen and 'Out'.
    Her many radio appearances include BBC Radio 4's The News Quiz and The Now Show.

    “instinctively, exquisitely funny from the moment she sashays onto the stage… a crowd-pleasing show packed with punchlines.” Evening Standard  

    “a very likable presiding spirit, combining daft physical comedy… with disarming emotional candour” The Guardian

    Troy Hawke : 'Sigmund Troy'd

    Troy Hawke is the award-winning comedy character and viral sensation star of the hilarious ‘Greeters Guild’ series of online videos.
    The creation of comic genius, Milo McCabe, Troy is a wonder you have to see for yourself: do so, and be transported to a world of old-school hilarity.

    How to describe Troy Hawke?
    Raffish 1930's throwback, homeschooled charmer, unlikely stealer of hearts and minds, adorable cad, unreconstructed bounder, smoking-jacketed mother’s boy, scrabble enthusiast… and yet this only scratches the surface.

    Last year Troy found the nefarious link between Ikea, the Nazis and Kanye West.
    This year, in his show Sigmund Troy'd,/b> he returns to investigate and to battle a new enemy on behalf of all people everywhere…PSYCHOTHERAPY!

    As Troy would say: “Have at it!”

    'A spectacular character...brilliantly sharp, lacing his wit with a touch of the surreal’– Fest
    ‘Milo McCabe’s creation is quite superb...blisteringly funny, with perfectly worded jokes’– Broadway Baby
