Coming to us direct from its 2013 Sydney Festival season, School Dance is a hilarious rite-of-passage comedy for anyone aged 14 to 114. A sell-out when it premiered at the Adelaide Festival in 2012, and heading to Wollongong straight from its 2013 Sydney Festival season, School Dance is a wonderfully original mash-up of `80s kitsch and kooky, tongue-in-cheek humour - perfect for anyone who is, or has ever been, a teenager.
Set in the midst of that terrifying rite of passage known as the school dance, the play follows three loveably awkward teenaged boys on a hormone- and mee goreng-fuelled quest for social acceptability.
Written by and starring Matthew Whittet (The Book of Everything), School Dance draws inspiration from the 1980s teen angst films of John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) to create a nostalgic, boisterous and achingly real theatrical gem that you won’t want to miss.
