Dirty Dancing in 2012
Fri 29 Oct 2010
DIRTY DANCING, THE RECORD BREAKING SMASH HIT MUSICAL, SETS PULSES RACING WITH THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE FIRST EVER NATIONAL TOUR FOR 2011/2012 – COMING TO SOUTHAMPTON MAYFLOWER
TICKETS ON SALE MONDAY 1 NOVEMBER
The producers of Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage, one of the most successful hit musicals in West End history, are delighted to announce the launch of the first ever national tour, opening in September 2011. The first seven cities are announced today, with further dates to be added.
Dirty Dancing plays at the Southampton Mayflower from Tuesday 3rd to Saturday 28th April 2012
Now in its triumphant fifth year at the Aldwych Theatre, Dirty Dancing, opened in the West End in 2006, breaking all box office records with advanced ticket sales of over £15 million, which made it the fastest selling show in West End history. It has since played to over 1 million people, receiving nightly standing ovations and continuing to enthrall and delight, and as a result, over 250,000 tickets have just been put on sale, extending the London run to 29th October 2011.
The success of the London show, which will continue to play at the Aldwych Theatre, has led to overwhelming demand from fans to experience the iconic love story that is Dirty Dancing in their home cities, and the producers are therefore delighted to announce this major new venture for the production.
Eleanor Bergstein, scriptwriter and creator of Dirty Dancing, said:
“I am happy to announce the opening of the UK tour of Dirty Dancing. In our fifth year in London, it is still astounding for me to sit amid our audiences, many of whom I discover have planned long in advance and travelled far to see us. Each performance, they honour us with a personal and loving response which delights us and makes us grateful It is a special pleasure then for us to plan a production that will have the chance both to visit and thank those who have travelled so far to see us, and to take our show to those who could not make the journey”.
Tickets are on-sale from Monday 1st November 2010.
