Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story at Buxton Opera House

Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage is back, exploding with heart-pounding music, breathtaking emotion and sensationally sexy dancing!

Rescheduled from (1st – 5th September) 2020, this is your chance to see this worldwide phenomenon in Buxton.

Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage originally opened at London’s Aldwych Theatre in 2006 with a record-breaking advance of £15 million, making it the fastest ever selling show in West End theatre history. The production became the longest running show in the history of the Aldwych Theatre and played to over 2 million people during its triumphant 5 year run.

Seen by millions across the globe, this worldwide smash hit tells the classic story of Baby and Johnny, two fiercely independent young spirits from different worlds, who come together in what will be the most challenging and triumphant summer of their lives. Featuring the hit songs, including Hungry Eyes, Hey! Baby, Do You Love Me? and the heart-stopping (I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life.
