About this show

The iconic 1992 film by Baz Luhrmann (The Great Gatsby, Moulin Rouge!, Romeo + Juliet) is now a spectacular new stage musical.

Based on the celebrated Australian film that got the whole world dancing, Strictly Ballroom The Musical tells the story of champion ballroom dancer Scott Hastings and beginner dancer and ugly duckling Fran. When Scott’s unorthodox dance style causes his long-time dancing partner to abandon him, he finds himself forced to join in an unlikely pairing with Fran. With a championship looming, can the pair prove their critics, and each other, wrong?

An inspiring romantic comedy that will warm your heart and get your toes tapping, Strictly Ballroom The Musical features classic songs from the film, such as ‘Love is in the Air’, ‘Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps’ and ‘Time After Time’, as well as brand new songs from Sia, Eddie Perfect, David Foster and a host of other international superstars. A dazzling stage production and the feel-good show of the year, Strictly Ballroom The Musical is the perfect treat for the whole family.
