“Your Disco Needs You –The Musical” encompasses the songs of Kylie Minogue and is set around the struggles of ordinary people uniting in a mission to save a local dance studio hit by recession.  The main characters come to the dance class to escape their own personal dilemmas but find their problems being resolved through new friends and relationships made at the class.

DanzGraceful is a community dance studio that is failing because of lack of class members and the recession.  Grace, who runs DanzGraceful, decides to enter a dance competition, which has a prize that could save her business and help the community.  She puts out the ad – “Your Disco Needs You” in a local paper and this attracts new members that help revitalise class numbers and bring new ideas to the class.

The first part introduces the separate characters one by one where each person’s drama is revealed. Sophie lacks confidence because of her alcoholic husband wearing her down and not being able to find new work. Immy is going through treatment for breast cancer but has a loving husband who supports her in everything she does, even if he doesn’t agree.  Immy is instrumental in bringing her fellow patients from their clinic exercise class to DanzGraceful to spice it up with the hula hooping exercises they have been doing and Immy’s exploits at pole exercise.

Rosie is introduced in an argument with her partner that ends their relationship. A strong woman, she sees the class as an opportunity to find a new woman; and finds love in the class. Jan is bored with her boyfriend that she has been with since school and also finds a new love interest at the dance studios.

The musical brings all these characters together at the dance class as they help change and support each other to the emotional climax.

Overall this feel good musical is fast paced and the Kylie songs embed seamlessly into the scenes helping tell the story. New songs and old favourites will delight all Kylie fans and non fans alike.  It also imparts the important message that exercise during cancer improves fitness and quality of life.
