Portrait:Dorian Gray Reimagined

“There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.” - Oscar Wilde

Neon Performing Arts presents its Summer Show - Oscar Wilde’s The Portrait of Dorian Gray retold for the 21st Century. Join us to explore an adaptation of Wilde’s narrative of a quest for a life of hedonism and excesses; all in the name of beauty. 

Which path would you choose to venture down; if you could do everything you wanted to do with no consequence - would you? Are there ever really no consequences to ones actions…? Watch Dorian’s fate unfold - will the vices win or virtues manage to pull him back in...?

Neon Performing Arts (Neon) is one of the only UK specialist Performing Arts Schools offering all styles of dance (Ballet, Modern Jazz, Acrobatics, Contemporary & Hip Hop) alongside Singing, Drama, Art, Music Production, Costume Design, Event Management, Music Performance & Dj-ing. They also have their newly founded Youth Company NeonELEVATE


To date Neon has produced 14 sold-out live original shows, 7 written by their students – with a focus on innovative and experimental ways to blend history & classical literature with combined arts. By using classic books as a starting point Neon brings in contemporary pop culture to transpose universal stories into the present; Neon’s shows give a platform to showcase an authentic voice of their young talents.
