Have Heard About the upcoming Peppersoup Theatre Show? Here’s All You Need to Know
To be a Playgoer is to live like the Elite who ceases every chance for a Theatre experience that proffers such an incomparable load of fun and excitement in relation to what the cinema, karaoke bar and music or comedy concerts can offer.
Hence, theatre going has been largely reckoned as an aristocrat activity. Among other issues, infrastructural deficit is a major challenge to the development of the theatre-going culture in Nigeria. Thus, most teenagers and young adults in Nigeria do not have an experience of what it feels like playing audience in an ideal theatre.
However, Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE) prides itself with the possession of the most recent and amazing university ideal theatre facility in Nigeria, which domiciles in the Department of Theatre and Media Arts. The FUOYE Theatre Complex stage that opened in 2017 with the command performance of the University’s premier convocation play directed by Prof Ojo Rasaki Bakare, is an exclusive purpose building made for the delectation of playgoers, as part of education, in the citadel of intellectualism.
Hitting the stage of this fanciful Theatre complex, first, in the new year (2018) is the performance of a Nigerian hilarious comedy written by Elechi Amadi-Peppersoup, directed by Tayo ISIJOLA, for the celebration of Valentine’s day. The performance is scheduled to run from Wednesday 14ththrough Friday 16thFebruary 2018 at 2pm daily.
From the on-going rehearsals, our reporter gathered that the Director’s interpretation transposes the play from its Port Harcourt setting to Ibadan, to ensure an overwhelming and immediate connect with the audience, and on each day of the performance, Director and Host, is poised to treat the audience to a bonus of valentine fantasia in a wisecrack moment,all for a gate fee of Two Hundred Naira (N200) only.
The performance indeed, promises to be a swell time in this season of love; for stale and new lovers, the lots that are seeking to fall in love again, and the not-set-for-this-love-thing others, in this event that X-rays the conditioning of a HEART that is shared between two ladies at the time. Do not miss this wonderful experience.
