Some Like it Hip Hop

With a nod to Billy Wilder's much loved film and Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, Some Like it Hip Hop is a comical tale of love, mistaken identity, cross-dressing, gender stereotypes and revolution; all played out in ZooNation's trademark style of hip hop, comedy and physical theatre.

With a nod to Billy Wilder's much loved film and Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, Some Like it Hip Hop is a comical tale of love, mistaken identity, cross-dressing, gender stereotypes and revolution; all played out in ZooNation's trademark style of hip hop, comedy and physical theatre.


Directed by Kate Prince, with ground shaking original music, the all star cast includes Tommy Franzen (So You Think You Can Dance, Blaze, Goldberg) Lizzie Gough (So You Think You Can Dance, Blaze) and Teneisha Bonner (Into the Hoods, Insane in the Brain, StreetDance 3D, Shoes).


ZooNation Dance Company was founded in 2002 by Kate Prince. In 2006, the company premiered Into the Hoods, which went on to become the longest running dance show the West End has ever seen. In 2010 ZooNation became a Resident Company at Sadler's Wells, and Kate Prince became an Associate Artist.
