Frodsham’s Zodiac to stage “Flashdance The Musical”

FRODSHAM-based musical theatre group The Zodiac has become the first amateur group to receive the rights to perform “Flashdance The Musical “ in the North West.
They are planning to stage the critically-acclaimed show in April next year at The Grange Theatre, Hartford.
The show is based on the 1983 movie of the same name, which follows the story of steelworker Alex Owens as the auditions to get into the prestigious Shipley Academy to follow her dream of becoming a professional dancer.
Many of the best-loved moments from the film are retained in the stage version, such as the songs ‘Maniac’, ‘Manhunt’ and ‘What a feeling’, as well as the famous audition scene and iconic water-drop moment.
Chairman of The Zodiac, Jude Kenyon, said: “It’s a very exciting time for us as we are the first amateur group in the North West and, at this moment in time, the second in the UK to secure the rights to perform this visually-stunning musical.
“This means we will be able to put The Zodiac stamp on it. As an award-winning group that celebrated its 50th Anniversary two years ago, we are confident we will put on a show of West End standard.
“Auditions will take place in November and will be advertised on our social channels, but we would advise that interested parties get in touch now via chairman@zaos.org.uk. We welcome anyone who wants to take part, whether performing or helping out with the production.”
The show has previously been performed professionally in the West End and has toured the US and the UK, most recently in 2018.
