Written by the award-winning Luke Barnes and with James Frewer’s original tracks underscoring throughout, Weekend Rockstars tells of three young lives living for the weekend.

Director Paul Smith said: “Weekend Rockstars is an album play, with its influences including the work The Arctic Monkeys, The Streets and The Libertines.

“The show is a live gig with a pulsating soundtrack played by a company of actor-musicians who take you on a riotous journey through the best and worst week of a young man’s life.

“Weekend Rockstars guarantees a good night out and invites you to dance, drink and sing along with the highs and lows of Terry’s mid-20scrisis.”

This evening will be kick-started with a set from local band Bowfinger, as production company Middle Child Theatre and The Hat Factory team up in an effort to smash perceptions of a night out at the theatre.

Middle Child create stheatre for people who think the theatre is not a place for them and aims to produce work that gets an audience’s blood pumping as much as a nightclub, a football match or a gig.

The show starts at 8pm. Tickets cost £12 or £10 for concessions. Call 01582 878100 or go to www.lutonculture.com for more information or to book.
