Dirty Dancing; the Classic Story On Stage
Book now for the time of your life!
At the Congress Theatre, Eastbourne from Monday 15th – Saturday 20th July 2019
The sassy, heart-pounding musical Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage comes to Eastbourne’s Congress Theatre this summer for a week of pure exhilaration from 15th – 20th July.
The iconic story of Baby and Johnny, featuring the hit songs Hungry Eyes, Hey! Baby, ‘Do You Love Me? and of course (I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life, returns to the stage following two blockbuster West End runs.
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 holiday in New York’s Catskill Mountains with her older sister and parents, she shows little interest in the resort activities, and instead discovers her own entertainment when she stumbles across an all-night dance party at the staff quarters. Mesmerised 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.
Her 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, and two fiercely independent young spirits from different worlds come together in what will be the most challenging and triumphant summer of their lives.
The show originally opened at London’s Aldwych Theatre in 2006 with a record-breaking advance of £15 million, making it the fastest ever selling show in West End theatre history. It now returns to the South Coast as part of a UK tour; it’s the perfect summer night out so book now and have the time of your life!
