Take On Me

This event has passed

Dante or Die present

TAKE ON ME is a show taking place after hours in Broughton Leisure Centre. Set in the 1980s world of headbands and leg warmers, it follows a lonely woman coming to the gym for the first time and a lifeguard who has never saved anyone.

This performance takes place at Broughton Leisure Centre, Great Cheetham Street, Salford M7 2DN.

Live musicians belt out classic 80’s hits including I Wanna Dance with Somebody and Flashdance, and lead you through the changing rooms, gym, an aerobics class and finally the pool. You are a fly on the wall for one extraordinary day in these people’s lives, as characters from 80’s films appear out of nowhere to change the course of fate.

A guest cast of local people play various parts including the Karate Kid, the centre receptionist and pool spectators who suddenly break into a rendition of Holding Out for a Hero.

You’ll never look at your leisure centre in quite the same way again!

TAKE ON ME was commissioned by Farnham Maltings and Arts Partnership Surrey, co-commissioned by Harlow Playhouse and funded by Arts Council England. The 2018-2019 Project is funded by Big Lottery Fund, Garfield Weston Foundation and Arts Council England.
