The Outfit Theatre Company don’t just make kids’ theatre, they make family theatre: shows for
the entire family. Shows which thrill children, titillate parents (indeed adults of all ages), and
leave the audience in stitches. Shows like “King Arthur”.
Over the last two years, The Outfit has earned considerable acclaim for their school holiday
productions of “Treasure Island”. Audiences and critics agreed that it was “a production of
elegance and hilarity” and “an authentic swashbuckling adventure” which appealed to all ages.
And now that Long John Silver and his crew have retired, The Outfit has set their sights on
adapting a tale even more exciting: the magical, action-packed legend of “King Arthur”, which
they have transformed into a laugh-out-loud family adventure show for the July school
A top-notch professional cast of skilled actors and performers present the rags to riches story
of a young man’s quest to defeat the evil villains, rescue the damsel and pull the Sword from
the Stone to become King Arthur. Unfortunately, this young man is no King – at least, not yet.
Instead, he’s Wart: stable-sweeper, amateur inventor and general all-round embarrassment.
When Merlin the wizard arrives in his village to recruit their bravest warriors, Wart is selected
to join the quest… as an assistant. As our band of heroes battle their way through enchanted
forests and overcome the most Pythonesque of obstacles, Wart finds the courage to mature
from lowly stable boy to noble King.
