Why See Strictly Ballroom?
North American Premiere
Shimmy on down to Toronto for the North American premiere of Strictly Ballroom. A gorgeously choreographed tale of romance on the dancefloor, this musical is based on the cult 1992 movie directed by Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet, The Great Gatsby), who helped to create this stage version. Featuring classic pop songs like 'Time After Time' and 'Love Is In the Air' as well as original compositions by Sia, David Foster and Eddie Perfect, Strictly Ballroom proved a smash hit when it debuted at Sydney Lyric Theatre in 2014.
What is Strictly Ballroom About?
Australian ballroom dancer Scott Hastings's style is unconventional to say the least. Following the latest fiasco of a competition when Scott started introducing his own steps, his dance partner leaves him, leaving him high and dry with only weeks before the big Grand Prix Dancing Championship. Desperate for a new partner, Scott picks the equally unconventional newcomer Fran, and over the course of their practise sessions, a romance begins to blossom. But can this unusual pair prove the doubters wrong and triumph at the Grand Prix?
Opening night: 26 April 2017
