The new dance musical is set to open at the Curve in Leicester on the 1st August.
Paul Morrissey Ltd has confirmed the UK Tour and lead creative team for the world premiere of new musical La Bamba! set to open in Leicester this Summer. Further venues and casting have yet to be announced.
La Bamba! is set to be choreographed by Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer and Italian Latin champion Graziano Di Prima. The creative team will also include director Ray Roderick, with music by award-winning Alfonso Casado-Trigo and with associate choreography by Giada Lini.
The musical is set to follow the story of Sofia, a young LatinX girl in Pacoima, California. A girl with a big heart and even bigger dreams. La Bamba! will be told predominantly through dance accompanied by a live onstage band.
Talking about choreographing the musical Graziano Di Prima said: ” I am honoured to be choreographing this brand-new dance show – La Bamba!. We workshopped it last year and I am so excited that it will now be touring across the UK from July. Audiences will get to experience a different kind of musical and some real Latin passion from our incredible cast.”
Inspired by the life and legacy of Rock ‘n’ Roll legend, Ritchie Valens, and featuring a sensational soundtrack of some of the most popular songs of the 20th century, La Bamba! smashes together musical and dance styles from contemporary R&B to Latin folk music.
