About: Carnival Dreams

The World Premier of CARNIVAL DREAMS The Musical, will be presented at the Ashcroft Theatre, Croydon from 3rd to 6th
February 2016.

This new musical, written by Norman Mark with hauntingly original music by Robert Orledge and directed by Andrew Lynford stars Cheryl Fergison, who played the much-loved Heather Trott in EastEnders.

It's Carnival time in Argentina and a small community dance group are preparing for the annual Samba competition.

Whilst fighting his own inner demons, former dance champion Andre tries to instill a passion to succeed but senior dance tutor Jose's bullying and bigotry does little to raise morale. Jose is consumed with contempt for the people who surround him. A bible-quoting misogynist who physically and mentally abuses his wife Teresa, Jose delights in trying to humiliate the flamboyantly camp drag queen Carmen and is determined to quash the growing romance between his daughter Cristina and Duarte, whose only crime is the colour of his skin. When the embittered Maria persuades Teresa and Cristina to escape Jose's clutches, a heart-wrenching tragedy unfolds.

Can the dance troupe survive and win against this adversity?
