Stage Acts Entertainment’s smash hit tribute to the greatest movie soundtrack of all time, An Evening of Dirty Dancing: The Tribute Show, will return to the Baths Halls in Scunthorpe in October and Lincoln’s Theatre Royal in November.
Embarking on its Fifth Anniversary tour, the show is a fully choreographed, highly interactive celebration of the music from the iconic movie.
Musical theatre stalwart Julian Essex-Spurrier will lead the production having played numerous iconic leading roles including Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever, Rocky in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Riff in West Side Story and Rusty in Starlight Express.
He’s joined by Aimie Atkinson who was the winner of the BBC Radio 2 Voice of Musical Theatre and returns to the production for a third season having recently played the leading role of Penny in Carnaby Street: The Musical and Chloe in the Take That musical, Never Forget.
The show is directed by Paul Spicer and pays homage to the movie soundtrack in a high-energy, emotional roller-coaster of an evening with buckets of nostalgia.
The night includes the classic songs Big Girls Don’t Cry, Hey Baby, Wipeout, Do You Love Me?, Hungry Eyes, and the Oscar-winning (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.
“The atmosphere is always electric,” enthused Paul Spicer.
“We totally encourage our audiences to sing and dance and immerse themselves in the summer of 1963.”
“I watch people leave the theatre on a real high and I’ve even seen people burst into tears of happiness.”
“This is a multi-award winning soundtrack steeped in nostalgia.”
“I challenge anyone to come along and not have a fantastic time.”
The show is at the Baths Hall on 2nd October and the Lincoln Theatre Royal on 12th November.
