IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE HAT FACTORY presents
Mixology: Ballroom California
Duration 30 mins.

Olympian Productions presents an extract from a brand new musical about Dunstable’s music venue California Ballroom. Set in the 1960’s this story is based around the love affair between Pearl and Oscar and how their love starts and blossoms at The California Ballroom. Like the rest of her generation, Pearl adores music and dancing but her strict parents have other plans for her as they desperately want her to take a different path and succeed in life.
Ballroom California is based on the true local story of a music venue which, at its peak in the 1960’s , had every major star performing on its stage – from The Rolling Stones to Dusty Springfield.
