You’re never fully dressed without a smile
Meet Lewis. He’s a Redcoat. He’s living the dream and living it large in Bognor Regis. He likes to smile and show you a good time. But what happens when you’re having an ‘off day’? And you tell Barney the Dinosaur to piss off (in front of a load of kids)?
Join Redcoat Lewis as he sets out to make the world a little bit better through his love of entertaining and showing people a good time.
Redcoat is a fun and fabulous show, that’s loosely inspired by Lewis’ experiences as a holiday camp entertainer. Set in 2012, Redcoat is a flash dance of mishaps and misbehaving. It’s about getting your first real job, leaving home, making new friends, gagging over ‘The Slushie Guy’ and going out into the big bad world of children’s entertainment.
You can expect classic holiday tunes, adult weekender mischief, dance routines, balloon modelling, karaoke sing-a-longs and that extra special bot of Redcoat sparkle!
Are you ready to Redcoat?
PERFORMANCE OF THE YEAR 2021
A real tonic!
One high octane thrill after another
Fuelled by a likeable and energetic performance by Jobson – who it’s pretty much impossible not to be charmed by – this delightfully upbeat piece was an absolute joy.
Redcoat is touring in 2023 & 2024. For programming information contact Steven Blackshaw email@example.com
