Welcome to Burjesta Theatre!


Welcome to Burjesta Theatre.  We’re now into our seventh year of existence during which time we’ve put on close to a hundred shows in nearly twenty productions.  This Christmas period we’ve finally got around to putting on our first ever panto.  And what a panto it is!  Adapted from the 1806 Drury Lane shows, it’s the original panto which put in place all the traditions you see today but mixed in with ‘commedia dell’arte’ the Italian form of improvised comedy with characters such as Harlequin, Columbine Pantaloon and Clown.  Click here for more details.

Mother Goose Xmas Panto – the People’s Panto


Ten shows running from 9th December to 13th January
The original and funniest panto of ‘em all!
And with tickets at only £7 for Adults and £5 for children this certainly is the best value around!
Suitable for all the family!

In our sixth year of existence we’ve finally got round to putting on our first panto and we’re truly all very excited about this one. We’re putting out Mother Goose based on the original 1806 Drury Lane shows it has all the classic characters from Mother Goose and her Golden Egg as well as some beautiful commedia dell’arte ones such as Harlequin, Columbine, Pantaloon and the Clown. There’s a love interest, some villains and of course a pantomime dame. And introducing a very bizarre character – ‘Oddfish’. You’ll just have to come along and see it if you want to know more!

All shows are at our place of residence – The Casa, Hope Street, Liverpool, L1 9BQ

‘Creating Drama’ Workshops


We have a new series of workshops beginning from Wednesday 1st November, 7pm @ The Casa. They’ll run each subsequent Wednesday throughout November and will then resume on 10th January running through into February. Please note due to our panto production there will be no workshops in December.
We’ll be looking at what goes into making great drama, what are the key ingredients as well as looking at some of the great dramas of all time – Oedipus Rex, Richard III, Macbeth and some of Brecht. We hope that they will be of interest to anyone involved in theatre be they actors, directors or writers. They’re open to all levels of experience including total beginners.

Each workshop costs £3/£2. No need to pre-book just turn up on the evening.
