Dirty Dancing tribute coming to the Isle of Wight

Fans of iconic chick-flick Dirty Dancing might like to head along to the Shanklin Theatre next month, as a stage revival of the 1980s box office smash is set to be performed.

Nobody puts Baby in the corner when it comes to tearjerkers aimed to melt the heart of women across the land and A Night of Dirty Dancing: The Ultimate Tribute Show will aim to capture the magic of the original film when comes to the theatre on March 9th.

Released in 1987, the story revolves around the unlikely romance of a young girl and her dance teacher while on a summer getaway, with lead stars Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze delivering a smouldering performance that has kept the film among the favourites of females across the planet.

The stage show promises to be equally as exciting and steamy, with the all-star cast of West End performers delivering a stunning remake that will have ticketholders wild in the aisles.

Set to an amazing soundtrack - with global album sales of more than 42 million and counting - featuring Big Girls Don't Cry, She's Like the Wind, Wipeout, Hey Baby, Hungry Eyes, Be My Baby, Do You Love Me and the Oscar-winning (I've Had) The Time of My Life, the curtain raises at 19:30 GMT and tickets cost from £18 per person.

Meanwhile, the Shanklin is also set to welcome folk and country legend Charlie Landsborough in the coming weeks, with the veteran performer taking to the stage on March 5th.

Having recently released his 25th studio album, Landsborough will be performing renditions of some of the most popular tunes from his long and distinguished career to date, including  I Will Love You All My Life, Part of Me, Heaven Knows, Love You Every Second and many more.

Tickets for the show will cost £20 and the multi award-winning singer-songwriter will be taking to the stage from 19:30.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801547274-ADNFCR
