Arriving at the VAULT Festival in February 2017, Summer nights in Space is a new glam space rock musical rooted in classic science fiction, using the bizarre setting of musical theatre to combine the song and dance of entertainment with the really big questions.
This new musical comes from the creators of the critically acclaimed rock musical The Quentin Dentin Show and plays at the VAULT festival from the 15th to the 19th February.
Astronaut John Spartan has finally made it into space – only to discover that it is not all he had hoped. Marooned in space with a ferocious alien and a moody computer, the reluctant crew of Auxiliary Transport Shuttle 4 must stave off Space Madness and work together to survive in the void. But when Spartan receives a distress signal from an attractive Astro-nette, his newfound mission to find and save her threatens to uncover the dark truth of space itself. Some things are better left unknown…
A sequel to the Quentin Dentin Show, the musical is produced by Hannah Elsy Productions which is at the forefront of new musical theatre development in the UK. It features a book, music and lyrics by Henry Carpenter.
Summer Nights in Space will run as part of the VAULT Festival at the Brick Hall, The Vaults, Leake St, Lambeth, London SE1 7AD from the 15th to the 19th February. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://www.vaultfestival.com/event/summer-nights-in-space/2017-02-15/
