Dirty Dancing the classic story on stage is here for you to enjoy at the King’s Theatre Glasgow. 

Dirty Dancing

The story of Baby Houseman (Roseanna Frascona) and Johnny Castle (Gareth Bailey) and the music that accompanies their blossoming love/lust - is known across the globe. This iconic show is a welcome addition to the musical theatre line up at The Kings.
Featuring all the iconic moments from the film, Dirty Dancing does exactly what it says on the tin. It brings Johnny and Baby's unforgettable love story to life with passion and credibility to the sheer delight of everyone in the audience.
Dirty Dancing

Set at Kellerman's summer camp in the 1960s, the clean, cheesy, wholesome fun that goes on is contrasted by the hot steamy backstage drama. Where Dirty Dancing truly comes into its own is in showcasing the amazing dancing. This cast work extremely hard throughout and their incredible movement is mesmerising. 
The entire play, including its staging, oozes with cheese. Once you buy into this fact and take its approach to the film as tongue-in-cheek, the characters and their struggles (ridiculous as it may seem)  become a whole lot more enjoyable!
As the final hip-swivelling moves are made, the buzz from the audience speaks for itself. This show is an empowering, romantic tale which will stand the test of time for decades to come.
