Two a cappella groups, both alike in dignity, in fair Bristol where we lay our scene, from ancient grudge break to new harmony. From forth the fiery loins of these two foes, a duet of star-crossed lovers take their pitches. Academy and Pitch Fight return to the Edinburgh Fringe fresh from their incredible success in competition this year. With award-winning choreography and vocal percussion, the Bristol-based groups take inspiration from the great Bard of Avon in their brand-new joint show. If music be the food of love, sing on!

This is a cast with a huge amount of energy, gusto and joyful enthusiasm (and not just because there's 22 of them!). The amount of talent that lies within this group is shockingly great. With perfectly-executed numbers and playful, lighthearted comedy in between, this show is truly a delight and is well worth a watch this year at the fringe!

Fantastic show, full of energy! A vibrant cast of talented singers, beatboxers and dancers! It takes on the story of Romeo and Juliet loosely with forbidden love between two feuding a Capella groups, this light hearted show incorporates its choice of songs well within the dialogue and plot and makes for a very enjoyable experience.
