A new stage show concept for Mill Rythe where the audience decide what the cast perform. A host presents the audience with a selection of production features, they then vote on what they would like the cast to perform next. Following the vote, the cast, band and technical team are given one minute to get ready, the countdown clock begins and the number starts ready or not. A stage show where every performance is different.
Set in the 1980s, Electric Dreams is the name of a Video, Arcade & Record shop where the cast; Gloria, Julie, Mickey, Frankie and friends work and hangout playing Space Invaders and listening to records. There is one arcade machine called Xanadu that is out of order, one night it mysteriously switches itself on and becomes a sort of time portal, through which Mickey is visited by Justin Bieber who shares the future and sets him on a mission to form a band. The show is comedy, light-hearted and packed with all things wonderfully 80s, including classic songs, adverts, fabulously retro costume and scenery all wrapped up with fun characters and dialogue telling nothing short of a ridiculously hilarious story line.
