May 10-15, 2016

Dirty Dancing treats you to an unprecedented live experience, exploding with achingly cool music, romance, and above all, sensational dancing. This touring production hews closely to the movie, packing in all its anthemic songs and cheesy one-liners with aplomb. It delivers everything the audiences can hope for - lots of sexy dancing and plenty of rock 'n' roll!
