Based on the Paramount Pictures film (Screenplay by Tom Hedley and Joe Eszterhas, story by Tom Hedley) the UK production described itself as “an unmistakably unique musical about holding onto your dreams and love against all the odds”. The show includes hits “Maniac”, “Manhunt”, “Gloria”, the award-winning title track “Flashdance – What a Feeling”.

Set in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the show revolves around 18 year old Alex, a welder by day and ‘flashdancer’ by night, and her dreams of attending the prestigious Shipley Dance Academy
