Can You Dig It?
2:30pm Friday 30th August 2013 in What's On
GREEN-FINGERED veg enthusiasts Jo Stephenson and Dan Woods perform their hit show Can You Dig It? at the Millennium Hall in Seavington on Saturday, September14.
They will have the audience rocking with laughter, and if you hate slugs you’ll love this musical comedy about the ups and downs of growing your own veg.
Sprouting from the fertile brains of comedy songwriters and real-life allotment gardeners Jo and Dan, Can You Dig It? features a wheelbarrow-load of songs covering topics including compost, annoying allotment neighbours and, of course, digging.
Highlights of the show, which earned rave reviews at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, include a rap battle between an angry gardener and a slug, a 1980s-style power ballad to cuddly gardening guru Alan Titchmarsh and a virtuoso performance on the cucumber trumpet.
Can You Dig It? will appeal to vegetable-growing novices and seasoned cultivators as Jo and Dan delve into the mysterious and competitive world of vegetable shows and launch a campaign to give sprouts the recognition they deserve.
The show starts at 8pm with the doors opening at 7.15pm, and tickets are available from Seavington Community Shop at £10 in advance or £12.50 on the door. The show is suitable for all ages and under-16 tickets are half-price.
