1st Night Photos: New Cast Dances into Aldwych

By • West End
The new cast of Dirty Dancing spent their first night (28 July 2010) onstage at the Aldwych Theatre, led by Royal Winnipeg Ballet dancer Johnny Wright as Johnny Castle.

He's joined by So You Think You Can Dance winner Charlie Bruce and former X Factor star Ray Quinn, who was recently seen in the West End production of Grease.

Dirty Dancing, currently in its fourth year, has been adapted for the stage by the film’s screenwriter Eleanor Bergstein, who based the story’s setting on her own childhood experiences of family holidays in America’s Catskill Mountains. The musical had its world premiere in Sydney in 2004 and has since proved a hit on tour in Australia and Germany as well as the UK.
