Four shining planetarium stars for Loserville. Packed with teenagers screaming their delight!
Written by former Busted member James Bourne and prolific composer Elliot Davis, Loserville is a rollicking pop-punk extravaganza described as Grease meets Glee meets High School Musical, and is based on Son of Dork's (Bourne's band) album Welcome to Loserville. Since this production Loserville has been performed across the globe.
Set in an American high school in 1971, Michael Dork is in a race to invent a way for computers to communicate with each other (basically, the internet), whilst his best friend, Lucas, is writing a science fiction novel where a character called Darth Vader captures a Princess Leia, and two other characters, Hans Solo and Luke Skywalker attempt to rescue her (sound familiar?). Both are constantly bullied by Eddie, a rich kid jock who plans to steal Michael's ideas, but undeterred they continue on with their efforts to change the world as they know it.
When the beautiful and brainy Holly arrives on the scene, with her ambition to be an astronaut, Michael has someone who matches his intelligence and can share ideas with. That is soon complicated by Eddie who has lascivious intentions towards Holly. This throws Michael's world into disarray has he's forced to decide between changing the world or getting the girl.
Eliza Bennett, who plays Holly, made her West End debut in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at nine, and went on to play Nora, one of the children in the movie Nanny McPhee.
