Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 UK tour of Strictly Ballroom The Musical has been rescheduled and will now not visit Scotland until March 2022.
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.
More information on how to exchange your tickets will be released 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 visit three Scottish cities - Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Takin on the role of Scott Hastings in the show is Kevin Clifton, who 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.”
Director Craig Revel Horwood said: “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.
Featuring a show-stopping book by Baz Luhrmann and Craig Pearce, and bringing together a sublime cast of over 20 world class performers, Strictly Ballroom brings to life iconic songs, including Love is in the Air, Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps and Time After Time with dynamic and joyous verve.
This tour will also feature some amazing new songs by internationally acclaimed artists including Sia, David Foster and Eddie Perfect.
The show’s scintillating singing, dazzling dancing and eye-popping costumes will combine together to bring audiences a story of heart, comedy and drama, and promises to be an unforgettable night under the glitter ball.
Baz Luhrmann’s Strictly Ballroom The Musical is a fabulous, feel-good evening full of sequins, singing and salsa, and this unmissable kaleidoscope of glitz and glamour is a tonic for the soul and will send your heart soaring and toes tapping long after you leave the theatre!
The tour's Scottish dates are now as follows:
March 7-12, 2022 - Aberdeen's His Majesty's Theatre.
March 14 - 19, 2022 - Glasgow's Theatre Royale.
March 21-26, 2020 - Edinburgh Playhouse.
