Ready for an evening of ‘Dirty Dancing’?

Prepare for the time of your life as the moment arrives to indulge in some ‘Dirty Dancing’.

If you liked the film, you’ll definitely love the stage version. The record-breaking smash-hit musical makes its Singapore debut at the MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands from 24 May to 16 June 2013.

‘Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage’ is written by Eleanor Bergstein, script writer and creator of the original film. The stage version features the much-loved characters, all the famous lines and of course all the sexy moves from the iconic film, with extra scenes added in for good measure.

The film ‘Dirty Dancing’ made worldwide stars out of Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey after its release in 1987. Set in the Catskill Mountains at the Kellerman’s holiday resort, the story tells of Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman, and her transformation from daddy’s girl, to the woman of dance instructor Johnny Castle’s dreams.

Over five million people worldwide have now seen ‘Dirty Dancing’, with the London show alone having been seen by over one million people. When it opened in London’s Aldwych Theatre in 2006, ‘Dirty Dancing sold out six months in advance, breaking West End records.

What you can expect come May is an electrifying show which includes steamy dance sequences and brand new choreography set to all the hits from the unforgettable soundtrack, including ‘Do You Love Me?’, ‘Hungry Eyes’, and the Academy Award-winning ‘I’ve Had The Time Of My Life’, and many more songs that weren’t on the original recording, making the show a truly unforgettable experience. You will never leave Baby in the corner after watching this.
