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.
Venue: Broughton Leisure Centre
Duration: 80 minutes
Recommended for ages 15+ contains strong language and brief full frontal nudity.
This is a promenade performance, which moves the audience around the leisure centre and involves periods of standing.
Take On Me has British Sign Language integrated into the show using a hearing BSL Communicator, who will be present at every performance.
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!
