Terrible Tudors

Well we had a fantastic morning today. We spent the morning at the Lyceum Theatre in Sheffield watching the Terrible Tudors based on the Horrible Histories series.

We enjoyed every minute of it.

The four member cast were able to describe the main features of the Tudor reign using songs, rhymes and 3D animation. I don't think the boys will forget about the Spanish Amada in a hurry, or the fate of the wives of Henry VIII. What was nice, they used the same rhyme D and I had done when we did a project on Henry VIII some years ago-divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survivied!

They are touring the country, so if you get the opportunity, it is well worth going to see. They are also performing the Vile Victorians, but we were unable to do both this time.

I wish I could have been there! I was just reading about the Tudors last night. Who says history is boring? Nothing boring about that family!
