Press Start transports audiences inside the bright, pixelated world of video games.

It’s a musical starring youngsters from across the Fylde Coast with Cou-Cou Productions and brings gaming characters to life. In gaming style the characters decide to put on a musical fundraiser that will help them raise gold rings and play on. Through hilarious and heartfelt musical numbers, heroes, villains and sidekicks will play out a story – but when things go awry, it’s the quiet sidekick Little Mushroom who must find the hero within. It runs on Friday and Saturday at Thornton Little Theatre.
