First | Previous | Next | Latest

The Oxford University Light Entertainment Society is proud to present The Sensational Story of the Splash (Not a Marvel Movie)

By day, Tim Blyton is a mild mannered unremarkable teenager, but by night he is THE SPLASH: the world's greatest water-based superhero! Join forces with the Splash as he teams up with earth's mightiest heroes (and the Justice League) to fight evil villains both new and old. Can the Splash save the day? Or will the mysterious villainous “Barista” prevail?

Join us on 5th, 6th, and 8th March (Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday of 8th Week) when doors open at 7.00pm in the Moser Theatre, Wadham College, for a super-powered musical comedy delight, all in the name of charity!
