A weird psychedelic History of Britain dream presented by acrobatic children popping out of the ground draped in neon dried fruit and signing Beatles songs choreographed with glitter pyrotechnics. 1 of 6Also Voldemort, Mary Poppins, Puck, from A Midsummer Night's Dream and Alice from Wonderland. It will remind you of college. Print from Bouf
