Really Spicy Opera will appear at the O’ahu Fringe Festival in Honolulu, HI, January 12-14, 2017, and the Maui Fringe Festival in Wailuku, HI, January 21-22, 2017, for a reprise of its award-winning production Game of Thrones: The Musical.
A massively inappropriate children’s show featuring vocabulary lessons, spoilers, incest, moral lessons, betrayal, and truly terrible puppet-on-puppet violence. All is not well in Westeros, where a simple visit sets in motion the War of Five Kings, dragon attacks, and worse. A skewering parody of the hit HBO show Game of Thrones and the bestselling novels by George R. R. Martin. If you like Sesame Street and/or adore Avenue Q, this is the show for you.
