New Dirty Dancing tour starts September 2018

There is a new tour of Dirty Dancing  next year which opens at  Brighton Theatre Royal on 20th September before heading off  to UK venues which will extend into 2019 with further dates to be added.

Dirty Dancing is set in the the summer of 1963, and tells the story of 17 year old Frances "Baby" Houseman and how she learns some major lessons in life and a a thing or two about dancing!

While on holiday in New York's Catskill Mountains with her parent Baby shows no interest in the resort activities, until she stumbles across a staff party and catches sight of Johnny Castle the resort dance instructor (originally played by Patrick Swayze in the film of the same name). Baby's life changes forever as she is thrown in at the deep end as Johnny's leading lady both on and off stage.

Dirty Dancing is a fabulous musical journey with some incredible dance routines. It has no less than 35 songs, including “Hungry Eyes”, “Hey Baby”, “Do You Love Me?” and the classic “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life.” 

Dirty Dancing  had its West End premiere at the Aldwych Theatre in 2006, where it ran for five years. It has since gone on to tour the world and returned to the West End in 2013, playing at the Piccadilly Theatre. It returned again to the Phoenix Theatre last year an went on an extensive tour which ended in September 2017

Casting news and more dates to follow.
