SCHOOL DANCE

A WINNING COMEDY FOR THE LOSER IN US ALL

It's the glorious 80s. The decade of MTV, perms and shoulder pads. Muldoon's in charge, Poi E's taken over the airwaves, and three losers are on a mission to get to their school dance. Fuelled by a diet of raging hormones and Georgie Pie, the trio sets off on a strange and fantastical journey to escape the school bully, impress the girl, and save the world!

Inspired by old-school cartoons and John Hughes films, School Dance is a deliciously dorky comedy for the freaks, the geeks, and anyone who’s ever felt different. Featuring BMX heroics, Smurfs and 80s anthems, it's a nostalgia-filled ride all about being brave, facing your own self-loathing, and coming out on top.
