Sexy, exciting, and daring.

Bonnie & Clyde tells the story of real-life fugitives, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. In the midst of the country-wide depression the couple find notoriety and love in this thrilling, fast-paced musical. The pair’s craving for fame and thrills leads them into a life of crime and a life on the run.

The musical brings together music by Frank Wildhorn, lyrics by Don Black and a book by Ivan Menchell to bring the famous outlaws alive on stage. Bonnie & Clydecombines gospel, rockabilly, and blues music to produce an innovative score that compliments the action-filled plot.

Shotgun Theatre is the University of Exeter’s award-winning musical theatre society, returning to Exeter Phoenix for its fifth consecutive year following previous productions such as Avenue Q and RENT. In 2014, Shotgun Theatre’s production of Spring Awakening was awarded the Cameron Mackintosh Award for Best Musical.
