Strictly Ballroom The Musical UK Tour rescheduled for 2021/22

Kevin Clifton

DUE to the on-going Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 UK tour of Baz Luhrmann’s Strictly Ballroom The Musical, starring Kevin Clifton and directed by Craig Revel Horwood, has been rescheduled and will now begin in Autumn 2021.

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.

Details of how to exchange tickets will follow in the coming weeks.

Based on the award-winning global film phenomenon Strictly Ballroom, which inspired the world to dance, this all-singing, all-dancing and all-glittering tour will now kick off in Plymouth on September 27 2021.

The musical will then waltz across the UK and parts of Ireland, playing Plymouth, Portsmouth, Northampton, Sunderland, Ipswich, York, Bradford, Cardiff, Guildford, Darlington, Peterborough, Salford, Llandudno, Southampton, Reading, Nottingham, Canterbury, Southend, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dublin, Derry, Wimbledon (April 11 to April 16, 2022), Bournemouth, Hull, Wolverhampton, Bristol, Liverpool, Aylesbury, Sheffield, Newcastle, Bromley and Milton Keynes, before culminating in Blackpool in July 2022.

Kevin Clifton said: “I’m really delighted that the Strictly Ballroom tour has been rescheduled. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s my all-time favourite film and Scott Hastings is my dream role, so I can’t wait to bring this musical to theatres across the UK next year. In the meantime, please stay safe and keep well everyone.”

Craig Revel Horwood added: “I’m thrilled that our new production of Strictly Ballroom The Musical has been rescheduled for 2021/2022. The tour may be a year later, but you can still expect those same sexy dance moves, scintillating costumes and a simply FAB-U-LOUS show for all to enjoy, starring the one and only Kevin Clifton!”

Strictly Ballroom The Musical tells the beguiling 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.
