A group of first year UCLan Music Theatre students are bringing Weird Romance to Preston.


Weird Romance is a musical with two separate stories; Act 1 is titled The Girl Who Was Plugged In, and Act 2 is Her Pilgrim Soul.

The show contains themes including the generation gap, love triangles, and the conflict between those who have and those who have none.

Two casts will perform alternate shows.

Head of Social Media and Marketing for the show, Michael Kerr, said: “Our cast is from all over the UK. Each of us also has a production role. For example, I play a character called Kevin but I am also looking after social media and am a music assistant.

“For many of us, this is our first show since before Covid, so it would be great to get as many people there as possible.”
