“The Social” Brought to you by Not Too Tame and Down To Earth.

Award-winning, great night-out specialists Not Too Tame invite you to their new production THE SOCIAL. The company that brought ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ at Shakespeare North Playhouse’ and sell-out tours of CINDERELLA and EARLY DOORS, returns with a show that celebrates all things community, clubland and Wigan Casino’s Northern Soul. The Social uses Northern Soul (“the dance movement that refused to die”) as a highly charged vehicle to tell the stories of Wigan’s community those who will forever ‘KEEP THE FAITH’. This heartwarming show doffs its cap to the challenges of the last few years and looks at what we need to do to push on to a better future. So get your glad rags on for a dance floor full of fun, fancy footwork and family feuds. It’s an immersive, site-specific show in a real local boozer.

The cast includes the incredible Sally Molloy, who was crowned World Northern Soul Dance Champion in 2022 so audiences can expect authentic dancing and music to get lost in. Sally has an ever-growing fan base across social media and has appeared on Craig Charles’ Funk and Soul show with her singing. Sally’s unique story of winning the title will be told in the show. We will be holding open auditions across the region in order to recruit the final roles for the production.
