The perennially popular An Evening of Dirty Dancing: The Tribute Show returns to The Cresset on October 26 featuring local talent from Peterborough Regional College.

Now in its 6th record-breaking year, the show is a fully choreographed, highly interactive concert celebration of the music from the iconic movie.

Musical theatre stalwart Julian Essex-Spurrier continues to lead 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.

We’ve caught the show before and it’s a high energy emotional roller-coaster with breathtaking choreography and buckets of nostalgia. It 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 Peterborough and to be welcoming back the students from PRC. I think it’s important to shine a light on local talent and the audience are in for a real treat with this talented group.”

Talking about the production, he added – “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.”

Please note this production is not affiliated with Dirty Dancing: The Classic Story on Stage in the West End or on tour in the UK or worldwide.

Tickets are available from the Cresset box office on 01733 265705.
