The hit stage show is currently wowing audiences at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens where it has just begun a brand new production which runs until August 30. And today it is announced, that due to its popularity, Dirty Dancing will return to the Winter Gardens from Tuesday August 29 to Saturday September 2 2017.
Tickets for 2017 go on sale at 10am today (Tues) from www.wintergardensblackpool.co.uk Winter Gardens Managing Director Michael Williams said: “We are absolutely delighted to be making this announcement. “When we revealed this summer’s run of a brand new production of Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage, we knew from that initial reaction it was going to be an incredibly popular show. “Since we opened less than two weeks ago the cast have experienced a standing ovation at every show. It really is the perfect Blackpool summer show so therefore it makes absolute sense to bring the UK tour back to Blackpool next summer. “Of course all shows are different and all audiences react in a different manner. However, the audience reaction to Dirty Dancing really is something else – everyone absolutely loves it and is showing their appreciation at every opportunity.”
This new tour of Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage is the first time the show has come to Blackpool and follows two blockbuster West End runs, two hit UK tours, and various sensational international productions. The show is the classic story of Baby and Johnny, featuring the hit songs ‘Hungry Eyes’, ‘Hey! Baby’, ‘Do You Love Me?’ and the heart stopping ‘(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life. Producer Karl Sydow added: “We have loved seeing the amazing reaction from Blackpool audiences, and we’re really excited to be able to announce DIRTY DANCING’s return in 2017.
It’s great that the wonderful people of Blackpool have embraced this brand new production in record numbers.” Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage is at Blackpool Opera House until Tuesday August 30. It will then return from Tuesday August 29 to Saturday September 2 2017.
