Baz Luhrmann’s smash-hit musical Strictly Ballroom runs at G Live in Guildford until tomorrow (Friday).
Directed by Craig Revel Horwood, it stars former Strictly Come Dancing champion Kevin Clifton as Scott Hastings, and EastEnders star and Strictly Come Dancing finalist Maisie Smith, who makes her musical theatre debut as Fran. They won the Strictly Come Dancing Children in Need Special in 2019.
Choreographed by Craig Revel Horwood and Strictly creative director Jason Gilkison, the musical is based on the film Strictly Ballroom that inspired Strictly Come Dancing.
Craig said: “I am absolutely delighted to be directing the amazing Kevin Clifton and the sensational Maisie Smith, together with our super-talented cast. Expect some sexy moves, sizzling costumes and a simply sensational evening.”
Kevin added: “I’m thrilled to finally be fulfilling my lifelong ambition to play Scott Hastings. When I was ten years old I first watched the movie that would become my favourite film of all time. This is my dream role. I’m beyond excited to be performing with Maisie again – she’s amazing.”
Maisie said: “Dancing in Strictly has been a huge part of my life, and been so much fun. I’m absolutely delighted to be able to continue that journey in Strictly Ballroom The Musical.”
