"Flashdance has to be the hottest musical to hit the stage this year "
- Whats on South West
Sparks will fly this summer as the World Premiere production of FLASHDANCE – The Musical explodes onto the stage in Southampton starring Bruno Langley (Coronation Street), Bernie Nolan (The Bill, Brookside), Noel Sullivan (Hear'Say) and Victoria Hamilton-Barritt as Alex.
Set in Pittsburgh, USA, Flashdance – The Musical tells the story of 18-year-old Alex, a welder by day and 'flashdancer' by night, whose dream is to obtain a place at the prestigious Shipley Dance Academy.
Based on the Paramount Pictures film (Screenplay by Tom Hedley and Joe Eszterhas, story by Tom Hedley) Flashdance is an unmistakably unique musical about holding on to your dreams and love against all the odds. The show features an iconic score including the smash hit Maniac, along with Manhunt, Gloria, I Love Rock & Roll and the Academy Award-winning title track Flashdance - What a Feeling as well as 10 original songs created especially for this new musical.
Full of pulsating raw energy and breathtaking choreography by Arlene Phillips (Strictly Come Dancing, Grease, Starlight Express, Saturday Night Fever), Flashdance – The Musical promises to be the theatrical event of the year – so take your passion and make it happen!

Her theatre credits include Mrs Johnstone in Blood Brothers, both in the West End and on tour and Mum's the Word on tour.
