A play about those childhood dreams. 

Baz is the resident DJ of Brigdale Primary. Next week, it's the Year 6 Leavers Disco: the biggest gig of the year. With a mighty setlist of early-noughties bangers cued up, Baz is raring to go for the event of a lifetime. That is, until their old school rival barges his way back onto the scene, forcing Baz to recollect the things he'd kept buried for years, and face up to moments in his past that will define his future… 

Join Baz in the multimedia, solo adventure of the century: DJ BAZZER’s YEAR 6 DISCO, exploring childhood dreams that never wake up, the things that keep you up at night and the toxicity of comparing ourselves to others. As Baz traverses through the nostalgic sounds of his childhood, he asks the audience to consider the hopes they had for growing up, and what it means to be alive through a journey of Magaluf rooftop raves, hospital wards and the glow stick laden school halls of years gone by. 

Written by Georgie Bailey | Directed by Mike Cottrell | Performed by Jack Sunderland | Sound Design by Chrissy R Williams | DJ Consultant: Gaia Ahuja | Lighting by Chloe Stally-Gibson
