Following on from the announcement that Dirty Dancing will return to the West End for a limited time, further dates for the UK tour have been confirmed for 2017, with dates in Woking, Blackpool, Liverpool and Sunderland being added.
Based on the hugely popular 1980’s film, the classic story of Baby and Johnny will now be visiting Sunderland (26th June-1st July 2017), Blackpool (29th August-2nd September 2017), Woking (4th-9th September 2017) and Liverpool (18th September-23rd September 2017).
Since hitting the road in August, this latest UK tour of the production has already taken roughy £5.5 million at box offices across the country, meaning that additional dates can be added.
Featuring hit songs such as “Hey Baby”, “Hungry Eyes” and of course the iconic “(I’ve Had) the Time of My Life”, Dirty Dancing is filled with romance and of course dancing delighting audiences through two West End runs, two UK tours and various international productions.
For this UK tour, the show has been re-conceived in an all new production that is directed by Federico Bellone, choreographed by Gillian Bruce and with design re-imagined by set designer Roberto Comotti. This production originally premiered in Milan in July 2015, subsequently packing out the 15,000 seat Roman Arena in Verona, before playing a season in Rome.
Dirty Dancing originally opened at the Aldwych Theatre in 2006, going on to become the theatre’s longest running show in its history, running for five years and was watched by two million people. Following a UK tour, it returned to the West to play at the Piccadilly Theatre in 2013, closing on the 23rd February 2014.
Dirty Dancing is touring the UK until the 23rd September 2017. For more information and to book tickets visit: https://dirtydancingontour.com/
