Bernard , a successful architect living in Paris, thought he could easily cope with his three air hostess fiancées. It was all a question of timetables and a reliable, long-suffering housekeeper who reluctantly has the role of romantic air-traffic controller.

Unfortunately, schedules change, flights are delayed and a new turbo-charged Boeing aircraft is introduced: chaos ensues in this hysterical whirl of mayhem and matchmaking.
It's the 90's and every weekend a group of young girls shake off the weekly grind with a messy night on the town. They don't care if Monday's blue, Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too. It's Friday- they're in love. They never know where the evening will take them or who they'll wake up with the next morning, but one thing they do know is they'll end up in the smallest night club in the world with the biggest tunes - Dreamers. These girls don't care about the future, they have all they need right now, and it feels like it will go on forever. But of course life changes and twenty years on, those nights hold mixed memories to a scattered group of women who long to be the dreamers they once were and shake off the terrible hangover of the past. Dreamers is a musical with original songs plus 90's indie classics that tells the story of small town nights with big hearts.
