Flash Back Theatre

Flash Back Theatre are a professional theatre company that understands the importance of bringing people together and music is a great way to do that. We at Flash Back endeavour to bring the real theatre experience into the comfort of your homes. We perform 6 original shows every year, each with a different genre of music. From Rock 'n' Roll to Country, from Motown to Musicals.

Our 45 minute-1 Hour shows include an original story line that provokes reminiscence through historical and life events, using costume and props to help stimulate old memories. 
We always try to ensure that everyone can get involved in our shows and we do that in a variety of ways. 

Firstly all our shows include around 18 well known songs which we encourage everyone to sing along to. We then hand out small percussion instruments to all residents, these range from maracas to wrist bells so residents can join in with our simple movements that one of the two actors will lead the group with during the song.

Lastly while the whole group is engaged, the second actor will go out into the audience and ask a resident for a dance. This can be done sitting down or standing up. What ever the show, our aim is to get everyone joining in and enjoying themselves.
