New 2022 dates for Edinburgh Playhouse

Strictly Ballroom the Musical, staring Kevin Clifton has rescheduled its planned tour putting its dates back a year to 2021/22, arriving at the Edinburgh Playhouse in March 2022.

Tickets are now on sale for most dates of the tour, which will now set off from Plymouth’s Theatre Royal in September 2021, arriving in Scotland in March 2022, playing Aberdeen the week beginning March 7, Glasgow’s King’s from March 14 and the Edinburgh Playhouse from March 21.

The tour producers said in a statement: “To ensure everyone’s safety in these uncertain times, the producers of Strictly Ballroom The Musical had to take the difficult decision to reschedule the original tour dates.

“But the good news is that all of the shows in the touring schedule have been rearranged and tickets for each performance will be exchanged automatically, so fans will not miss out on this musical extravaganza.”

Adapted by Baz Luhrmann from his ferociously successful 1992 movie, the musical had mixed reviews in its 2018 UK debut in London’s West End, when it was directed and choreographed by Drew McOnie.

Kevin Clifton

The new UK and Ireland tour will star Strictly Come Dancing’s Kevin Clifton, with direction and choreography from dancer, choreographer, theatre director and Strictly judge, Craig Revel Horwood, whose most recent productions as joint director and choreographer include Fiddler on the RoofSon of a Preacher Man and Sister Act.

Featuring a cast of over twenty, the show follows arrogant, rebellious young ballroom dancer, Scott Hastings. When his radical and daring dance style see him fall out of favour with Australian Federation, he must dance with beginner, Fran.

Together they find the courage to defy tradition and discover that to win, your steps don’t need to be strictly ballroom!

The show features break-into-song numbers such as Love is in the Air, Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps and Time After Time, as well as new songs by artists including Sia, David Foster and Eddie Perfect.
