Marcel The Shell With Shoes On
Kids Tickets Only £2.50 Marcel offers 90 minutes of poignant whimsy, all of it inducing genuine laughter and tears. If it doesn’t move you, then perhaps nothing will.
Hired to helm an Americanized take on a British play, director Lloyd Fellowes (Michael Caine) does his best to control an eccentric group of stage actors.
During practice sessions, things run smoothly. However, when Lloyd and his actors begin a series of performances leading up to a Broadway premiere, chaos ensues. Star actress Dotty (Carol Burnett) is quickly passing her prime, male lead Frederick (Christopher Reeve) has no confidence, and bit actor Selsdon (Denholm Elliott) is rarely sober.
