Centre Stage in Barrow: ‘Dancing in my Dreams’ HPHS

Community Centre Friday 9 October, 7.30pm

BUSCA is delighted that the professional Oxfordshire Theatre Company is returning to Barrow this autumn with another musical play: ‘Dancing in my Dreams’ by award-winning playwright Neil Duffield.

Kathleen loves dancing and Ginger Rogers & Fred Astaire but when the bombs fall, she must swap her life in London for the farms and fields of the countryside. Kathleen and her sister are evacuated, along with many of their friends, and find themselves sent to live with different families. Kathleen must cope with the trauma of separation whilst experiencing the jealousies and prejudices of her new ‘family’. Escaping the daily reality of wartime Britain, she enters the fantasy world of her film idols, Fred and Ginger until an unlikely person comes to her rescue.

The play was inspired by the many children whose lives were changed forever by the experience of living in war time Britain. With songs from the 1930s (Top Hat and Dancing Cheek-to-Cheek), and movement inspired by Hollywood, this enchanting play embraces the harsh reality of being an evacuee but also exposes the newfound freedom and fun of life in the British countryside.

The show is suitable for families and young people aged 8+. Tickets will be on sale from the Paper Shop or by phoning Judith on 07718 153117. Full price tickets cost £8.00 (concessions: £7.00) but bought in advance £7.00 or £6.00 (concessions).
