Dirty Dancing at the Southam Hall, Ottawa

Dirty Dancing

From 14 Apr 2015

Dirty Dancing - The Classic Story Live on Stage treats you to an unprecedented live experience, exploding with achingly cool music, romance, and above all, sensational dancing. Adapted by the movie's original scribe Eleanor Bergstein, this North American touring production hews closely to the plot of the movie, packing in all its anthemic anthems (I Had the Time of My Life, Hungry Eyes) and cheesy one-liners with aplomb. It delivers everything the audiences can hope for - lots of sexy dancing and plenty of rock 'n' roll.
