The latest Live and Local show at Crich’s Glebe Field takes place on Saturday, May 23, from 7.30pm.

Seven Ages by Kepow Theatre Company is an acclaimed semi-improvised show that is loosely based on Shakespeare’s As You Like It.

This semi-improvised comedy theatre show explores the idea that we go through seven stages in life.

Masks, puppetry, improvisation and storytelling all feature in this comic show about love, life, and the universe.

Taking true stories from his own upbringing, Kevin Tomlinson creates amusing and touching scenes based on a variety of topics such as going to school, falling in love, finding a job, having a child, and growing old disgracefully.

However, each performance is unique, as many of the scenes performed are based on suggestions made by the audience.

Fresh from a sell-out world tour, this delightful comedy features one of Britain’s funniest, most engaging, comic performers in Kevin Tomlinson.

Seven Ages has been praised for its brilliant combination of comedy, drama and pathos, as it aims to explore two of the most important questions one can ever ask oneself: Why am I here? and What’s important in my life?

It is a truly unique show that makes one re-assess one’s priorities in life, whilst simultaneously making you laugh.

The show is suitable for adults and children aged six and over and tickets are available in advance at a cost of £10 (16 and over) and £7 (£12-£16) or on the night (£12 and £8.50 respectively).

For advance tickets, you can call 01773 853260.

n Jazz ace Corey Mwamba will be at Derby’s Guildhall Theatre on Thursday, May 7, from 7.30pm.

New Dark Art and Yana also features Dave Kane and Joshua Blackmore in this special double bill, an intriguing blend of medieval and contemporary music.
