DESERT Island Flicks - described as a ‘blockbuster, adventure and rom com’ - is coming to a community centre near you.

Spiltmilk Dance deliver a fun performance in their latest show presented by Creative Scene, an organisation bringing art and culture to North Kirklees with funding from Arts Council England.

If you love the movies you’ll love this show featuring dance, sketches and re-imagined by two leading ladies who re-make and spoof the most memorable movie moments of all time.

‘From timeless classics to modern day marvels, the show celebrates how iconic characters and thrilling plot twists have captured imaginations the world over, bringing people together to laugh, cry, and cheer along in a room full of strangers.’

Adele Wragg, co-director of Desert Island Flicks, who also stars in the show along with Sarah Boulter, said: “It is primarily a sketch show using dance. We re-imagine iconic, memorable moments from some smashing films.

“We remember up to 90 films on the night appealing to different age groups.

“It is filled with plot twists and cliff hangers, swoony romances and full on tear-jerkers.”

“Grab your popcorn for a whistle stop tour of suave spies, talking toys, singing nuns and pesky icebergs that have kept us glued to cinema seats over the last 80 years.”

Performances take place at Birstall Community Centre, Market Street, this evening (Friday March 22) and at Roberttown Community Centre, Church Road, Liversedge, at 7.30pm tomorrow (Saturday March 23).

Nancy Barrett, director of Dewsbury-based Creative Scene, said: “We are delighted to welcome Spiltmilk Dance back to the area for another wonderful show.

“They are specialists in the art of uplifting entertainment and always guarantee a good laugh for the audience. Why not come along and try something different?”
