Dirty Dancing tribute show comes to Buxton

The perennially popular An Evening of Dirty Dancing: The Tribute Show  returns to Buxton Opera House  on March 23.

In its 7th record-breaking year of touring the UK and internationally, the show is a fully choreographed, highly interactive concert celebration of the music from the iconic movie.

Musical theatre stalwart Julian Essex-Spurrier  currently leads the production having played numerous iconic leading roles including Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever, Rocky in The Rocky Horror Picture Show , Riff in West Side Story  and Rusty in Starlight Express.

He’s joined by Amanda Coutts  who recently played the leading role of Scaramouche in the smash hit Queen  musical We Will Rock You . Amanda’s other credits include Pearl in Starlight Express, Rusty in Footloose and Serena in Fame The Musical.

An Evening of Dirty Dancing: The Tribute Show is directed by Paul Spicer with choreography by Leanne Harwood and pays homage to the greatest movie soundtrack of all time.

A high energy emotional roller-coaster with breathtaking choreography and buckets of nostalgia, which includes the classic songs: Big Girls Don’t Cry, Hey Baby, Wipeout, Do You Love Me, and many more.

The Director said “We’re thrilled to be returning to Buxton on what will be our 7th UK tour. The atmosphere is always electric. We totally encourage our audiences to sing and dance and immerse themselves in this incredible music. I watch people leave the theatre on a real high. This is a multi-award winning soundtrack steeped in nostalgia. I challenge anyone to come along and not have a fantastic time”.
