Singalonga Dirty Dancing
Sep 19 at 8pm, Grand Opera House, £17
It’s the Summer of 1963; it’s college boys versus dancing hunks; it’s one of the best loved movies of all time and, yes, there is a guy as great as your dad.
Join Baby and Johnny in a fun-filled screening of the 1987 dance classic where YOU are the stars of the show. With the help of our host, you can join in the Merenge Dance Class, feel your partner’s heartbeat, sing just like Lisa and make that dancing in the aisles really dirty…
Join in all the magic moments and boo rotten Robbie, hiss tarty Vivian, scream for Johnny, go aahh for Baby and shout “Creep” for Neil, the slimy uncle’s boy, Max’s slimy Nephew.
And remember, “Nobody puts Baby in the corner”. This is your chance to show Patrick and Jennifer how it’s done.
