DanceEast, The New Wolsey Theatre and New Art Club are currently seeking talented community performers for Hercules: A Dance Cabaret

Created by and starring the award winning comedy double act, Tom Roden and Pete Shenton, of New Art Club, this story of Hercules is told through hilarious dance routines and amazing speciality acts. It’s a modern cabaret for the whole family: a pantomime, a history lesson and a party all rolled into one side-splitting adventure.

What is the commitment?
