Pine Rivers Musical Association (PRIMA) is presenting the Queensland Premiere of Flashdance the Musical from 27 September to 6 October at the Redcliffe Entertainment Centre.
Flashdance The Musical tells the story of 18 year old Alex, a steel worker by day and 'flashdancer' by night, who dreams of going to the prestigious Shipley Dance Academy and becoming a professional dancer. When a romance complicates her ambitions, she harnesses it to drive her dream.
Featuring a cast of almost 40 performers, supported by a live band and under the guidance of professionals David Harrison (Director), Shelley Marshall (Choreographer) and Wendy Bird (Musical Director), Flashdance the Musical is a spectacle of dance, iconic music and special effects – including the water drop.
Leading the cast is local talent Aleisha Rose (pictured), who joined the cast with an impressive film and television resume including working opposite Hugh Jackman in The Wolverine and featuring as the lead role in feature film Arrowhead. Closer to home, Aleisha was the host of Channel 7’s Lab Rat’s Challenge as well as the lead character in Toybox on Network Seven.
“The show is an inspirational celebration of dance and art, featuring some of the best performers in South East Queensland. I couldn’t be prouder of what we have created together and can’t wait for audience to see this spectacular show,” said Director David Harrison.
