Melanie Whitehead, Artistic Director of The Old Electric, said: ““We’ve tried to stay faithful to the original story but since we started rehearsals in September it’s been great fun to play with new ideas.”

It’s performed by the Electric Sunshine Project (ESP) - a community theatre group that aims to widen accessibility to the arts in Blackpool.

This production builds on their sold out summer show; Wonderland.
