Hucklebuck (named after the iconic dance)is a part immersive theatre experience set to perform as part of Clonmel Junction Arts Festival's 2023 season. The show will transport audiences back to 1960s Ireland when showbands ruled the dance hall circuit. While emigration, catholic morals and political instability rage outside, young people found a release inside dance halls all around Ireland. Audiences will watch boy meets girl in a world where traditional values were slowly beginning to bend. The show will have a full live band, a chorus of dancers and two actors at its core.
Successful applicants will rehearse evenings and weekends before an agreed production week schedule and then performing during the July festival.
