Dirty Dancing at the Artscape

One of the greatest love stories of stage and screen comes to the Mother City


Have the time of your life with famed rebellious lovers Baby and Johnny from Friday, 18 January until Sunday, 3 March 2013 when the eighties film-classic-turned-theatrical-production twirls its way onto The Artscape’s stage this summer in Cape Town.

Experience and relive all the magic from Jennifer Grey’s (Baby) drama-filled holiday in the Catskills as supremely talented local performer Bryony Whitfield and international hunk Gareth Bailey guide you into a world of dirty dancing. Audiences more drawn to the musical component of the movie can take solace in the fact that the engine of the show undoubtedly  motors forward fuelled by the teenage romance’s anthemic songs, such as ‘Time of My Life’ and ‘Hungry Eyes’,  which are sung live by a fantastic local chorus line.

Produced by Karl Sydow, Peter Toerein and Hazel Feldman and coming to Cape Town after a successful run in Johannesburg (150,000 tickets were sold), this interpretation of Eleanor Bergstein’s work has theatre gold written all over it.

Shows are Friday, Saturday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays.
