Dirty Dancing, the first of the smash hit West End musicals hitting Venue Cymru this Autumn is fast approaching.

Seen by millions across the globe, Dirty Dancing is an unprecedented live experience, exploding with heart pounding music, passionate romance and sensational dancing.

Jessie Hart  stars as the idealistic Baby Houseman. Jessie recently graduated from Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, and has since played ‘Agnes’ in the ITV drama Arthur and George and the lead role of ‘Gerda’ in The Snow Queen (Nuffield Theatre).

Lewis Kirk stars as Johnny Castle, one of the most iconic roles in popular culture. Lewis, who started his Dirty Dancing journey as a member of the 2014/15 touring company, was previously seen on tour around the UK in Hairspray and has also appeared in Our House 10th Anniversary Concert (Savoy) and in the world premiere of Soho Cinders (Soho).

Also in the cast are Lori Haley Fox as Marjorie Houseman, Georgina Castle as Lisa Houseman, Kane Verrall as Neil Kellerman and Matthew Colthart as Billy Kostecki. Albey Brookes is also part of the ensemble.

The tantalising dance sequences and brand new choreography come alive on stage, set to the hits from the unforgettable soundtrack including ‘Do You Love Me?’, ‘Hungry Eyes’ and the Academy Award winning ‘(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life’, plus many additional songs, making the show a truly extraordinary live experience.

Dirty Dancing can be seen at Venue Cymru, Llandudno, from October 6-17.
