UkuleleOpera presented FLEA! - a spectacular community theatre production, from 23-27 May 2017 at Bridport Electric Palace.
Based on an original idea by Sally Vaughan, written and composed by Andrew Dickson, and directed by Niki McCretton, FLEA! told the story of Madame Celine, the devious and exotic ringmistress of an extraordinary flea circus, where ukuleles formed the main musical backdrop and storyline.
The word ukulele literally means ‘jumping flea’ in Hawaiian and the show used the instrument as the main theme in both the story and the music. It was, however, by no means the only theme. The show brought together many different art forms including circus, music, dance, acting, design and making, digital technology… and even dog agility!
FLEA! appealed to a diverse audience, offering a thrilling spectacle that contained something for everybody, whatever your age or interests.
