Dirty Dancing is an unprecedented live experience, exploding with heart-pounding music, passionate romance and sensationally sexy dancing on stage at The Teatro at Montecasino from October 26, 2012.
Seen by millions across the globe this worldwide smash-hit tells the classic story of Baby and Johnny, two fiercely independent young spirits from different worlds, who come together in what will be the most challenging and triumphant summer of their lives. Featuring hit songs performed by a rocking live band, including “Hungry Eyes”, “Hey Baby”, “Do You Love Me?” and the heart stopping “Time Of My Life.”
Dirty Dancing on stage is a re-imagining of the film, adapted for the stage by the same woman who brought it to the big screen in 1987, Eleanor Bergstein.
It's the summer of 1963, and 17 year old Frances 'Baby' Houseman is about to learn some major lessons in life as well as a thing or two about dancing.
On holiday at a resort called Kellerman’s with her older sister and parents, 'Baby' shows little interest in the resort activities, and instead discovers her own entertainment when she stumbles upon the staff quarters when an all-night dance party is in full swing.
Mesmerised by the raunchy dance moves and the pounding rhythms, ’Baby' can't wait to be part of the scene, especially when she catches sight of Johnny Castle the resort dance instructor.
'Baby's' life is about to change forever as she is thrown in at the deep end as Johnny's leading lady both on-stage and off with breath-taking consequences.
Produced by Pieter Toerien and Hazel Feldman, Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage is packed with breath-taking dancing by South Africa’s most sexy performers with million dollar costumes and stunning visuals.
Featuring everyone’s favourite scenes including “I carried a watermelon” and “nobody puts Baby in a corner” – if you loved the film you will adore the stage version! Appealing to young and old alike, the well known and loved original movie soundtrack performed and danced to live, makes Dirty Dancing the hottest ticket in town!
