Will you see an arseholed-Dodger, a fuddled Fagin or even an out-of-it Oliver? Each night a different actor will get drunk before the show, when they’ll attempt to perform an hour long version of Oliver! complete with choreography and harmonies, whilst their poor fellow actors have to deal with whatever’s thrown at them (occasionally literally).

Sh!t-faced Showtime is the all-singing, all-dancing, all-drinking phenomenon from the professional piss-heads behind Sh!t-faced Shakespeare. Featuring a cast of professionally trained musical theatre performers, classic show tunes, complex choreography and one entirely Sh!t-faced actor every night ... What could possibly go right?

So how does it work? Well each performance has a cast of actors, who all arrive 4 hours before the start of the show for a ‘party’ – however this party is dry for all but one performer, who gets Sh!t-faced. The rest is a balancing act between the songs as they appear in the sheet music and the improv rules, which state you must go with WHATEVER the drunk actor decides to do. Every single show is a one-off. Every single performance has a different drunk actor. Every single time they are genuinely inebriated.
