We’re huge Strictly fans at ESP so we can’t wait to catch Strictly Ballroom the Musical at the New Theatre in Peterborough this November.

Baz Luhrmann’s smash hit musical is set to sweep Peterborough audiences off their feet when the brand-new tour, directed by the fab-u-lous Craig Revel Horwood, waltzes into the New Theatre from November 28 – December 3.

Former Strictly Come Dancing champion, Kevin Clifton stars as Scott Hastings and EastEnders star and Strictly Come Dancing finalist, Maisie Smith makes her musical theatre debut in the lead female role of Fran. Kevin and Maisie were previous champions of the Strictly Come Dancing Children in Need Special 2019.

The production, choreographed by Craig Revel Horwood and Strictly Come Dancing's Creative Director, Jason Gilkison, plays for one week only in Peterborough as part of a 40 venue tour so don’t miss it!

Foxtrotting around the UK and Ireland, the show is based on the award-winning, global film phenomenon, Strictly Ballroom, that inspired the world to dance and spawned the smash hit TV series Strictly Come Dancing.

Strictly Ballroom The Musical tells the story of Scott Hastings, a talented, arrogant and rebellious young ballroom dancer. When Scott’s radical dance moves see him fall out of favour with the Australian Federation, he finds himself dancing with Fran, a beginner with no moves at all.

Inspired by one another, this unlikely pair gather the courage to defy both convention and their families – and discover that, to be winners, the steps don’t need to be strictly ballroom…
