Have the time of your life with the ultimate live experience; Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage. Full of passion and romance, heart-pounding music and sensationally sexy dancing, the record-breaking musical is even better than before in this all new production.
It’s the summer of 1963, and 17 year old Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman is about to learn some major lessons in life as well as a thing or two about dancing.
On vacation in New York’s Catskill Mountains with her older sister and parents, Baby shows little interest in the resort activities, and instead discovers her own entertainment when she stumbles upon the staff quarters when an all-night dance party is in full swing. Mesmerized by the raunchy dance moves and the pounding rhythms, Baby can’t wait to be part of the scene, especially when she catches sight of Johnny Castle the resort dance instructor.
Baby’s life is about to change forever as she is thrown in at the deep end as Johnny’s leading lady both on-stage and off with breath-taking consequences.
Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage – a worldwide stage phenomenon
In the beginning
Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage was first performed at the Theatre Royal, Sydney, Australia on 18 November 2004. Following this, the production went on a national tour of Australia and New Zealand, visiting Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Auckland. In total, the show had a sell-out season of 18 months throughout Australia and New Zealand. A new production opened at the Theater Neue Flora in Hamburg, Germany in March 2006 where it broke records for achieving the HIGHEST ADVANCE IN EUROPEAN HISTORY.
Globally Breaking Records
Following this success, Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage broke more records in London where it opened on 24 October 2006 at the Aldwych Theatre. The production began previews with £11 MILLION IN ADVANCE SALES – a West End Theatre record. In an unprecedented move, the theatre had to add an additional 25 seats into the auditorium to accommodate the demand for tickets and ran for six months of completely SOLD-OUT PERFORMANCES. Dirty Dancing is the longest running show in the history of the Aldwych theatre!
In 2013 Dirty Dancing completed a hugely successful multi-record breaking nationwide tour across the UK and Ireland, which was seen by over one million people since it launched in 2011.
Following the end of the first ever UK tour, Dirty Dancing returned to London for a strictly limited season at the Piccadilly Theatre and a new UK tour will launch in Bristol in March 2014.
The show has gone on to perform across the world in Toronto, Canada; Utrecht, Holland; a North American Tour including Chicago, Boston and LA; Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa. The show opened in Berlin, Germany, April 2009 and closed on the 14th November 2010, making it the longest run in the history of the Potzdamer Platz theatre.
