Set at the failing holiday camp Disco Heaven Holidays on an island in North Wales, this show celebrates classic 1970s disco music and it is riotous fun.
Featuring one of the best comedy ensembles you will find anywhere, the story revolves around a bride-to-be inviting three of her dad’s old flames to the camp, one of which she suspects is her mother.
With a live on stage band, the company go through most of the disco classics from Boogie Wonderland to You Make Me Feel Brand New.
The ten strong cast sing and dance their hearts out while going through all the comedy business supplied by scriptwriter Stephen Fletcher.
It all fits together beautifully and with many familiar Liverpool theatres faces on stage, the quality is assured.
Andrew Schofield is hilarious as the bewildered father who manages some very funny disco moves while the three suspect mums, goofy psychic Mandy (Keddy Sutton), sultry vamp Julie (Helen Carter) and jolly teacher Brenda (Eithne Browne), clown around wonderfully.
Alan Stocks plays Barry the general help with comic gusto and Paul Duckworth the gambling friend Alf. Writer Fletcher is the bridegroom and Rachel Rae the radiant but concerned bride.
This is the third production from the newly-formed Life In Theatre company and each show has proved, like this one, a winner. The Dome, a large theatre space inside the old Central Hall in Renshaw Street, is right for a show on this scale (the cast includes slinky singers Catherine Morris and Lauren Southwick) and a big but simple set involving numerous levels and steps serves its purpose.
Running until January 12, it’s different, great fun and very lively.
