DANCING AT THE DISCO AT THE END OF THE WORLD
is a brand new show from Replay Theatre Company. It takes audiences on a journey into a post-virus future where the survivors are young, but the rules are old:
Replay is looking for people aged 16-25 to get involved and perform in the show as characters in this dangerous new society.
Why would I want to do that?
Good question! We think it’ll be a lot of fun, and a great all-round way to spend your time, but here’s a few more specifics:
You’ll work with an expert team of theatre makers
You’ll learn and develop performance skills
You’ll perform on stage as part of the Belfast International Arts Festival
You’ll be working with a professional cast of actors
You’ll receive a full credit in the programme
You’ll gain new skills and experience.
What’s the show about?
Part Lord of the Flies, part Animal Farm, part rave, DANCING AT THE DISCO AT THE END OF THE WORLD is a brand new show which propels audiences into a post-virus future where the survivors are young, but the rules are old: Don’t Question. Don’t Challenge. Don’t Dare.
Audience members leave their seats behind and join the characters in The Homeplace to seek the truth... But you should only seek if you’re ready to find.
Who is Replay anyway?
Replay Theatre Company is a Belfast-based theatre company, founded in 1988. We specialise in making theatre for younger audiences. This show Dancing at the Disco at the End of the World is targeted at audiences aged 14+
What’s the commitment?
Rehearsals will begin on Thursday 21st September, and your involvement requires you to be available on Thursday evenings and each Saturday every week until the show opens on Fri 13th October.
The performances take place from Friday 13th – Fri 27th Oct each night at 7.30pm (no show Sun 22nd), and there are 10.30am matinees on weekdays from Mon 16th – Fri 27th for schools to attend.
You don’t have to be available for every show, as we’ll try to divide the chorus out across shows, but you should be available for at least half of them.
The show is part of the Belfast International Arts Festival and will be held in Riddel’s Warehouse in Belfast City Centre. The show is on from Friday 13th Oct – Fri 27th Oct. Rehearsals will begin in September, with possibly a small number of parkour (free-running) workshops prior to that. Participants should be willing to commit to the whole project.

You must be available every Thursday night and Saturday from 21st September until 13th Oct.
You must be available for at least half the shows between Fri 13th – Fri 27th Oct
