A local amateur dramatic society, the Riverside Players, are putting on a production of this Edinburgh Festival favourite, ‘Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens’ – a show and a musical, that’s all about love, lust, justice and disco, but not necessarily in that order!
A head shot of the lead actor from the cast. Looks like it will be an amazing experience, with the setting for the production a cabaret bar, where the audience and the actors mix unlike traditional stage plays.
For those of you not familiar with this stage offering (as I confess I was until last week), villain Saucy Jack De’ath is a failed magician and seedy night club owner on a fictional planet somewhere in space around whom the events of the evening unfold. The audience are both watching and actually part of the production, sitting in the cabaret hall, buying drinks from the ‘staff’ at the bar, watching the events unfold. There’s a bit of cross dressing, some teeteringly high glittery boots, some songs and dialogue.
