Charlotte Neville set and costume designer for Jason and the Argonauts gives us exclusive access to the set build process for the production. We were also lucky enough to see some of the amazing costume and mask designs for the show.

“We’ve drawn together a range of influences, from 1980s animation theme tunes and the soundtracks of Wes Anderson, to the fantasy films of Jim Henson, by way of the deck of the USS Enterprise and the Doctor’s TARDIS.”

“Jason is an ordinary human in a world bursting with gods, monsters and superheroes. Assembling a team of mighty Argonauts, he takes the fabulous ship Argo on the ultimate adventure – the quest for the Golden Fleece. But it won’t be easy. Along the way, he’ll meet crazy Kings, horrific Harpies, sinister Sirens… and the skeleton army of the Earthborn Dead. Does Jason have what it takes to be a hero, and bring the Golden Fleece back home? 

Jason & The Argonauts is a brand new version of the classic legend – a blockbuster theatre experience full of hope, heart and humour for the whole family. Suitable for everyone aged 7 and over.”
