A show for anyone who’s ever loved music
“ONE OF OUR FAVOURITE PRODUCTIONS…INSPIRED BY MUSIC FANS AND THEIR OBSESSIONS” NARC.
Loud, live gig theatre, Fans is an electric mix of stories told through bold new writing, raucous live music and real music fan confessions. Full of emotion, humour and musical pulse, this is a celebration of music lovers.
It’s the story of four friends and band members members from completely different backgrounds, united by their love of music, searching for not only a sound and a philosophy but also a name.
It’s about not fitting in at school, rebelling against your parents, falling in love and figuring out who and what it is that you want to be.
Feat. music from over 50 artists and bands. Plus, original music and arrangements. This should be enjoyed at maximum volume.
Fans was awarded the Bridging the Gap award in 2016 and has toured throughout the UK to venues including Live Theatre and Northern Stage (Newcastle), CAST (Doncaster), Alnwick Playhouse, the Albany and Theatre N16 (London).
