Lights, Camera, Spandex! is a tongue-in-cheek production that pokes fun at 1980s stereotypes. Think fluro, big hair, lycra and Olivia Newton John! Known to be fast paced and hilarious, Kate Beck’s formula for comedy inspired this award-winning production. With only three characters on stage (at all times!) mischief is bound to ensue.

This play was incredibly quirky! Audiences loved the dancing, jokes and 80s references riddled throughout the show. With only a go-go stage as a set, Lights, Camera, Spandex! pushes the boundaries for comical hilarity!
