Theatre The Beacon


This ‘ground-breaking’ immersive comedy show from the makers of Faulty Towers The Dining Experience returns to Lighthouse Poole in September.

Totally immersive and highly improvised, The Wedding Reception is a 2-hour theatrical dining experience that’s all confetti and chaos and 5-star reviews. The show invites audiences to become guests at a very surprise, not-so-civilised wedding reception... Cue gatecrashers, misbehaving family, and secrets better left in the closet! Perfect for the curious, the celebrating, or anyone looking for a fun night out, The Wedding Reception features four performers playing nine characters in a whirlwind of laughter, love and tears – plus there’s a 3-course meal, and maybe even some dancing!

The Wedding Reception: Confetti & Chaos is an immersive comedy written and produced by Australia’s Interactive Theatre International, the people behind the smash hit Faulty Towers The Dining Experience. It’s an original piece that features four phenomenal actors in multiple madcap roles; the cast for Lighthouse Poole in September features Ben Hood, Nerine Skinner, Laura Sheppard and Otis Waby.
