Teamwork makes the “Dream” work! New show at The Old Electric

The Old Electric welcomes spring with their new production, Dream; an exciting collaboration between Blackpool & the Fylde School of Arts, House of Wingz and The Electric Sunshine Project (TESP).

Dream is a unique spin on Shakespeare’s comedy classic, A Midsummer Night’s Dream but this version is set somewhere in the 1980s, bringing with it a broad range of influences from the era including vogue ballroom culture, striking workers, yuppies, gender- fluidity and neon.

Performances are on at The Old Electric theatre at 7pm on Friday 20 May and 2pm and 7pm on Saturday 21 May.  The show will last around 90- minutes with no interval. It is most suitable for ages 10 +. Tickets are priced at £7 and can be booked online at www.theoldelectric.co.uk or bought in cash by visiting the venue. TESP’s Community Theatre company will be bringing the rude mechanicals to life in their play-within-a-play performance, House of Wingz will perform the fairy kingdom full of street dance energy and trickery, and BA Acting students are the enchanted lovers where the course of true love
definitely does not run smooth…

The Old Electric theatre space has amphitheatre style seating that can’t be found anywhere else in town.
All views from around the auditorium are great and it provides a unique theatre-going experience for all
ages. All levels are accessible by a lift.
To ensure that audiences are safe and comfortable, the company continues to monitor government
advice for live performance venues.
The performance will run for around 90-minutes at The Old Electric from May 20 to May 21 with
performances starting at 7pm on Friday and at 2pm and 7pm on Saturday. Tickets are priced at £7 and
can be booked online at www.theoldelectric.co.uk or in cash at the venue, – although previous shows
here have sold out so don’t rely on turning up on the night.
