SPONSORED — Relive the romantic '80s classic film on stage when Flashdance The Musical hits the stage at Winter Garden's historic Garden Theatre this summer from July 5 – 28, 2019.
Bringing the beloved film to life, the musical follows Alex, 18, who works as a welder in a steel mill by day and a nightclub dancer by night, yet dreams of becoming a professional dancer. When romance becomes entwined with her ambitions, she harnesses it to realize her dreams.
Fans of the film will enjoy hit tunes like “Maniac,” “I Love Rock & Roll,” and “Flashdance…What a Feeling,” and classic movie scenes bringing the romantic drama alive onstage.
Further immerse yourself in the 80s action with special karaoke nights following select shows. Both the July 13 and 27th performances will be followed by a special karaoke party, inviting you to hop on stage and sing your favorite 80s tunes on the Garden stage with DJ Di. This after-show event is free for attendees.
The show features impressive choreography by Director Jani Walsh-Weber, assisted by James Tuuao, and stars Paxton Brock as Alex and Clay Cartland as Nick.

ABOUT THE GARDEN THEATRE
Garden Theatre of Winter Garden celebrates its 11th anniversary during the 2018-2019 performance season. Originally built in 1935 as a single-screen cinema, the theatre was the first in Central Florida built for “talkies” and was a gathering place for locals to watch the latest newsreels and films of the day. The building was restored to its former glory in 2008, and the 295-seat Garden Theatre, with a current annual budget of $1.5 million, has grown to a performing arts center with extensive programming that includes professional live theatre, concerts, dance, special events, movies and a thriving year-round arts education program. Visit gardentheatre.org or contact 407-877-4736 for details about the 2018-2019 season.
