Based on Baz Lurhmann’s award-winning worldwide film phenomenon, Strictly Ballroom: The Musical is heading out on a brand-new UK and Ireland tour starring Strictly Come Dancing favourite Kevin Clifton and BBC’s EastEnders star Maisie Smith and will visit the Cliffs Pavilion, Southend, from March 20-35, 2023.

Directed and co-choreographed by TV judge, Craig Revel Horwood, Strictly Ballroom: The Musical follows arrogant, rebellious young ballroom dancer, Scott Hastings (Kevin Clifton). When his radical and daring dance style sees him fall out of favour with Australian Federation, he must dance with beginner, Fran (Maisie Smith). Together they find the courage to defy tradition and discover that to win, your steps don’t need to be strictly ballroom!

Featuring hit songs Love is in the Air, Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps, Time After Time and all new music written by internationally acclaimed artists including Sia, David Foster and Eddie Perfect.

This feel-good ballroom sensation is sure to make for an unforgettable evening under the glitter ball that will send your heart soaring and toes tapping!
