A cappella sensation Semi-Toned are back for their ninth run at the Fringe. After surviving a plane crash, the boys in burgundy realise that they are stranded indefinitely on a desert island. Even worse, it might be too hot to wear their trademark velvet blazers. With nothing better to do, they decide now is the perfect time to practice their flashy choreo and shining harmonies... oh, and maybe try to find a way off the island! Join Semi-Toned through the hilarious twists and turns of trying to get themselves and the audience rescued and back to safety!

Brilliant! Loved every minute of this show. I’ve watched their show every show at the Fringe, and this for me is their best one yet.

This is the most incredible show my eyes, ears, and heart has ever experienced. I fell in love with every single one of the boys on stage and my life will never be the same. The charisma. The witt. The talent and charm. It was all impeccable. Honestly speechless. Going to see it again tomorrow I can’t get enough.

If you love having 8 beautiful talented boys stare deeply into your eyes and serenade you for an hour then get your tickets immediately. Fell in love, got my heart broke, and fell in love again. Wish Tom Brown would adopt me.

These lads never fail to impress, and there isn't a weak vocalist amongst them. This show is lots of fun, and the beatboxer was superb. If you don't like acapella, you should still go see this.

I have watched many A Capella groups before, but this has been a whole new experience. Such a funny script to accompany the perfect vocals. Tearjerking ballads transform into upbeat numbers, hilarious covers of cheesy pop roll into jaw-dropping beatboxing. Semi-Toned take A Capella to a new level. ⭐️

Semi-Toned always deliver with their incredible vocals. There are some standout performances in this year’s Castaway-themed show: ‘Glimpse of you’ was the highlight for me. Their humour, vocals and brilliant beatboxing make it a fantastic show for all ages. Surely their best fringe show yet. Not to be missed.

This shows has the best of a capella singing with humour injected throughout the show using a Castaway theme. The beat box element was amazing. It reminded me of the best of the TV show, Glee.

The singing was good, but their humor made it better than it otherwise would have been.

I saw this show a few days ago. I think saying that they had a standing ovation at the end says it all. What a performance. Simply outstanding!
