Strictly Ballroom UK Tour tickets

Based on Baz Luhrmann’s award-winning film, Strictly Ballroom the musical is heading out on tour starring Kevin Clifton and Maisie Smith.

STRICTLY BALLROOM THE MUSICAL UK TOUR

Directed by Britain’s favourite TV judge Craig Revel Horwood and co-choreographed by Jason Gilkinson and Craig Revel Horwood. The Strictly Ballroom UK and Ireland Tour will be foxtrotting around the UK and Ireland from September 2022, the show is based on the award-winning, global film phenomenon, ‘Strictly Ballroom’ that inspired the world to dance.

The Strictly Ballroom UK Tour features a show-stopping book by Baz Luhrmann & Craig Pearce, and brings together a sublime cast of over 20 world-class performers with iconic songs, including Love is in the Air, Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps and Time After Time with dynamic and joyous verve. This tour will also feature some amazing new songs by internationally acclaimed artists including Sia, David Foster and Eddie Perfect.

Craig Revel Horwood added: “I’m thrilled that our new production of ‘Strictly Ballroom The Musical’ has been rescheduled for 2022/23.  The tour may be a year later, but you can still expect those same sexy dance moves, scintillating costumes and a simply FAB-U-LOUS show for all to enjoy, starring the one and only Kevin Clifton!”

Strictly Ballroom The Musical tells the beguiling story of Scott Hastings, a talented, arrogant and rebellious young ballroom dancer. When Scott’s radical dance moves see him fall out of favour with the Australian Federation, he finds himself dancing with Fran, a beginner with no moves at all. Inspired by one another, this unlikely pair gather the courage to defy both convention and their families – and discover that, to be winners, the steps don’t need to be strictly ballroom…

Strictly Ballroom Tour Cast

Kevin Clifton is to play Scott Hastings. Kevin is an international Ballroom and Latin dancer winning numerous titles, including the British Latin Championships four times. He is best known as a Pro Dancer on BBC One’s, ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ and is the only pro dancer to ever dance in four consecutive finals. Further casting is to be announced.

Kevin Clifton said: “I’m really delighted that the Strictly Ballroom tour has been rescheduled.  As I’ve mentioned before, it’s my all-time favourite film and Scott Hastings is my dream role, so I can’t wait to bring this musical to theatres across the UK next year.  In the meantime, please stay safe and keep well everyone.”

This uplifting and courageous musical originated as a stage play that Baz Luhrmann devised with a group of classmates at Sydney’s National Institute of Dramatic Art in 1984. Eight years later he made his screen directorial debut with ‘Strictly Ballroom’, the first instalment in Luhrmann’s acclaimed Red Curtain Trilogy. The vibrant film enjoyed staggering success, winning three awards at the 1993 BAFTA awards and a 1994 Golden Globe nomination for Best Picture, going on to become one of the most successful Australian films of all time, earning more than $80 million at the box office. In April 2014 Strictly Ballroom The Musical had its world premiere at the Sydney Lyric Theatre.

Baz Luhrmann’s Strictly Ballroom The Musical is a fabulous, feel-good evening full of sequins, singing and salsa. This unmissable kaleidoscope of glitz and glamour is a tonic for the soul and will send your heart soaring and toes tapping long after you leave the theatre!

Please note that Maisie Smith is currently scheduled to appear until 25 May 2023.
