What a feeling! The classic film now takes to the stage...

Why See Flashdance?

WHAT A FEELING!

Feisty 80s heroine Alex Owens is back and lighting stages of the US on fire with her sizzling dance routines in Flashdance The Musical, a touring production based on the iconic film. With a score including legendary hits like I Love Rock 'N' Roll and Manhunt (the production also includes 16 brand new songs composed by Robbie Roth and Robert Cary), and a plot almost tailor made for musical theatre, it's no wonder the cult classic is celebrating its 30th anniversary!

Adorn your finest tube socks, back comb that hair and get ready to have the words to What A Feeling stuck in your head till kingdom come!

WHAT IS FLASH DANCE ABOUT?

Alex is a young welder with dreams of becoming a professional dancer at a prestigious ballet school, and is stifled by the limitations of her small town in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and her lack of self-belief. While moonlighting as a dancer in a seedy nightclub, she catches the eye of her boss at the steel mill and the two begin a relationship that might just end up standing in the way of her aspirations.
