Strictly Ballroom The Musical

Based on Baz Luhrmann’s award-winning worldwide film phenomenon, Strictly Ballroom: The Musical is heading to Northampton as part of a brand-new UK and Ireland tour starring Strictly Come Dancing favourite Kevin Clifton and BBC’s Eastenders’ Maisie Smith!

Directed and co-choreographed by Britain’s best loved TV Judge, Craig Revel HorwoodStrictly Ballroom: The Musical follows arrogant, rebellious young ballroom dancer, Scott Hastings (Kevin Clifton). When his radical and daring dance style sees him fall out of favour with Australian Federation, he must dance with beginner, Fran (Maisie Smith). Together they find the courage to defy tradition and discover that to win, your steps don’t need to be strictly ballroom!

Featuring smash-hit songs Love Is In the Air, Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps and Time After Time, and all new music written by internationally acclaimed artists including Sia, David Foster and Eddie Perfect. This feel-good ballroom sensation is sure to make for an unforgettable evening under the glitter ball that will send your heart soaring and toes tapping!

This production arrived in Northampton's packed out Royal and Derngate Theatre on Opening Night with an electric atmosphere.

The part of Scott Hastings was played by Edwin Ray rather than Kevin Clifton. Edwin did a fantastic job and this really highlighted the importance and appreciation of the understudy role. 

Strictly Ballroom is an exciting production filled with an amazing feel good soundtrack and the dances to match. This show is highly recommended.
