An Evening of Dirty Danc­ing: The Trib­ute Show is di­rected by Paul Spicer with chore­og­ra­phy by Leanne Har­wood.

It prom­ises to be a high en­ergy emo­tional roller-coaster of an evening with breath­tak­ing chore­og­ra­phy and buck­ets of nos­tal­gia. The au­di­ence can get on their feet and dance to the clas­sic hot movie songs in­clud­ing, Big Girls Don’t Cry, Hey Baby, Wipe­out, Do You Love Me, Hun­gry Eyes and the Os­car-win­ning (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.

Paul Spicer said “The at­mos­phere is al­ways elec­tric. We to­tally en­cour­age our au­di­ences to sing and dance and im­merse them­selves in the sum­mer of ’63. I watch peo­ple leave the theatre on a real high.

“I’ve seen peo­ple burst into tears of hap­pi­ness! This is a multi-award win­ning sound­track steeped in nos­tal­gia. I chal­lenge any­one to come along and not have a fan­tas­tic time.”
