A tale of love, failure and illusion is coming to Preston.


One-hit wonders Sandy and Bruno are the lead characters in THE BAND put on by Derelict theatre.

A blend of dance, physical comedy and aerial movement the show is touring UK-wide and stops off in the city on Thursday 30 March, performing at the University of Central Lancashire’s Media Factory.

Artistic director Eleni Edipidi and dancer Nathan Johnston are working together on the show.

The show outlines: “Sandy and Bruno met in the seventies and formed a band: she was fame hungry, he was doomed to follow her. But like so many one-hit wonders, through time they’ve been cruelly forgotten; washed up on the scrap heap.

“Now, they are opening the skeleton cupboard, dusting off old costumes and preparing for a comeback. Is this their last chance for fame? This is a story about love, failure, illusion, drama, glitter and tenderness.”

Tickets are £9 for adults for £6 for concessions online through Ticket Source.
