Synopsis:

Space Ship Dazzle“Dazzle” has Book & lyrics by John Gardiner and Music by Andrew Parr and is a brilliantly funny parody of Star Trek, charts the voyage of the Starship Sunburster One on its highly important first mission under the control of dashingly handsome (and doesn’t he know it!) Captain Sarn Galactic.

Ray GunOrdered by the President of Homeworld to transport his daughter Dazzle Star, to her finishing school, Captain Sarn and his gallant crew are just tucking into a Chinese takeaway, space style, when they learn that Dazzle Star has been kidnapped by Slimebag the Haemorrhage, an Irish astral pirate!

At the end of Act One we are left wondering why Dazzle has been kidnapped; is Big Olga really Sam Galactic’s stepmother? And who is Slimebag? We find the answers to these questions, and more, in Act Two which includes a space warp back to nineteen sixty to encounter Sue Zuki and the Greasers.

After the “Spirit of the Stage” revue, the decision was made to once again do a full scale show, but something that was a little different… “Dazzle” is certainly that… a great cross between movies like Star Trek, and shows like “Return to the Forbidden Planet”!
