MAKING CONTACT: OUR TRANSFORMATION Find out more

A celebration of what it means to be a football fan - the highs, the lows, the chants, the banter and the songs.

This unique theatre show puts the fans centre-stage, with the audience watching what only the players get to experience.

An exciting international collaboration based on an original idea conceived by the directors, formerly of legendary Belgian company het Kip.

Get Involved

We’re looking to recruit Man City fans of all ages to be part of this unique show. No acting experience needed. Don’t worry, it’s not really an opera, there’s no singing other than the chants and songs associated with the club!

What we need are people happy to do what you do week in, week out, on the terraces, at the games: the songs, the banter, the chants. The audience gets to experience what only a footballer normally sees and hears: you lot, going for it.

To take part we just need you to commit to most of the rehearsal period and all public performances, and most importantly, show the world how amazing Man City fans are!

Rehearsals take place at Contact, depending on day or evening availability, Sat 9 September to Wed 20 September. Shows take place Wed 20 September- Sat 23 September (4 days, 5 shows).

Interested or have a question? Please email Kyle, our participation co-ordinator (and City mega fan) kylewalker@contactmcr.com or call 07870 632255.
