Photos: Charlie Bruce Stars as Christmas BabyDate: 20 December 2010
Charlie Bruce, who earlier this year won BBC series So You Think You Can Dance, will be making her West End acting debut this Christmas by taking on the iconic role of ‘Baby’ in hit West End musical Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage.
Bruce, who joined the cast in September and has been performing in the ensemble, will play the role from 20 to 24 December 2010 in place of Hannah Vassallo. She has been covering Baby since starting in Dirty Dancing in July but this will be the first time she has performed the role in her own right.
Bruce will star opposite Royal Winnipeg Ballet dancer Johnny Wright as Johnny Castle (the role made famous on screen by Patrick Swayze) and X Factor runner-up Ray Quinn as Billy Kostecki.
