A PIANO recital with a modern twist will be performed in a Weston theatre next month.Highly acclaimed music and comedy duo Katzenjammer makes its debut at The Playhouse on October 1.Katzenjammer consists of Kevin Farrell and Steven Worbey, both classically trained pianists and humourous songwriters.However, Kevin and Steven have developed their own unique, virtuosic and acrobatic style of performing that has been described as both funny and spectacular by the national press.With cheeky comic timing they parody a whole range of musical styles, from Liszt to Gracie Fields, from Beethoven to The Spice Girls, while the resulting tangle of hands and arms on their keyboard is projected onto a large screen.Some songs see the two talented pianists jostling, almost arm-wrestling, for access to the keys as the technical difficulty of the pieces sees all four hands dashing up and down the piano and in between each other, crossing, double-crossing, interweaving and out-dancing one another as they go.Other straightforward arrangements allow the pianists to demonstrate their teamwork, including their ability to mix a gin and tonic while playing.Tickets for Katzenjammer - The Four Hands on One Piano Music and Comedy Duo, priced £11, are available from the box office on 01934 645544 or via www.theplayhouse.co.uk* The Weston & Somerset Mercury has teamed up with The Playhouse, Weston, to offer one lucky reader the chance to each win a pair of tickets to see the show.To enter, please answer the following question: Which musical instrument do Katzenjammer play?Closes:9am on September 26.Usual Archant Regional Ltd rules apply and the editor's decision is final.
