1984 ICONIC SCIENCE FICTION ROMANTIC COMEDY IS NOW A NEW STAGE PRODUCTION
Music Theatre Melbourne is excited and proud to announce the first full showing of a new stage production, ELECTRIC DREAMS The Musical, at Gasworks Theatre, Albert Park, from 20 to 24 November.
Written by DREW LANE the story takes you back to the wild innocence of 1984, combining a love triangle (boy-girl-computer) with a brilliantly catchy score that features 22 original songs.
It’s 1984. The year of ‘Gremlins’ and ‘Ghostbusters’, string vests and shoulder pads. The year George Orwell chose as the title for his apocalyptic novel about Big Brother. The year that Rusty Lemorande created his iconic cult movie called ‘Electric Dreams’, with a title song that made everybody sing along.
The stellar cast is headed by Tom Green as Miles (Miss Saigon; Gladys Moncrieff Award; The Project) who finds a brave new world of love and technology, and Madeleine Featherby (Paris: A Rock Odyssey; Follies; LaTraviata), as Madeleine, girl next door and cellist extraordinaire.
It also features Stephen Mahy (Miss Saigon; Jersey Boys; Mamma Mia; Crossroads!) as Miles’ Casanovan best pal, and Angela Scundi (Rocky Horror Show; Thoroughly Modern Millie; Tick Tick Boom), as Madeleine’s, the thoroughly modern Millie. Owen James plays Edgar, the computer with human aspirations. Sophie Loughran, Zak Brown, Anthony Scundi, Courtney Smyth and Aidan Nairros
