UkuleleOpera presents FLEA! - a spectacular community theatre production, taking place in 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! tells the story of Madame Celine, the devious and exotic ringmistress of an extraordinary flea circus, where ukuleles form the main musical backdrop and storyline.
The word ukulele literally means ‘jumping flea’ in Hawaiian and the show uses the instrument as the main theme in both the story and the music. It is, however, by no means the only theme. The show will bring together many different art forms including circus, music, dance, acting, design and making, digital technology… and even dog agility!
FLEA! will appeal to a diverse audience, offering a thrilling spectacle that contains something for everybody, whatever your age or interests.
