A foot-stomping tale of resilience and strength promises to have County Durham audiences on their feet.
A dance marathon in a northern town forms the backdrop for The Letter Room’s northern soul musical No Miracles Here, which is coming to the Gala Theatre on Thursday, 28 February.
Follow the journey of Ray and his band, The Raylettes, in what is an uplifting and joyful look at how people can overcome depression through dancing.
The vibrant musical production was made in association with the mental health charity Mind, and developed through support from the Royal Shakespeare Company, Northern Stage, Shoreditch Town Hall and The New Wolsey Theatre.
Packed with live music and dance, No Miracles Here is an anthem to feeling alive and keeping the faith.
Stan Hodgson, co-artistic director of The Letter Room, said: “We’re delighted to be performing No Miracles Here, our music-filled story of resilience and hope set in a dance marathon.
“We tried to tell a personal story of human struggle, but fill it with music, movement and humour. And we can’t wait to pick up our instruments, get our sweatbands on and bring it to new audiences across the country in 2019.”
Robin Byers, manager of the Gala Theatre, said: “We’re pleased to be able to welcome No Miracles Here to Gala on its national tour. We always like to offer exciting new work to our audiences, and we’re particularly pleased that this is a production which celebrates the power of music and culture.
Show begins at 7.30pm and tickets cost £15 (£13 concession), free to Gala and GTSS members. Book online at www.galadurham.co.uk
