Backwards Broadway

Performed at Blackburn Theatre, Prestfelde School, London Road, on November 23 2020, Backwards Broadway was a one-night only performance that left audiences truly entertained. Featuring beloved show tunes, but with a fresh perspective. Gender and ages were reversed and there were fun twists on classic and modern song favourites.

Award-winning! Backwards Broadway won the Best Concert Award for shows in our district in the 2019 National Organisation for Dramatic Arts Awards. Huge congratulations to cast and crew.
