And today it is announced Dirty Dancing will return to the Winter Gardens from Tuesday August 29 to Saturday September 2 2017.

Promoters say more than 30,000 will have seen the show in Blackpool this summer by the end of its initial run, across 23 separate shows.

Winter Gardens Managing Director Michael Williams said: “We are absolutely delighted to be making this announcement.

“When we revealed this summer’s run of a brand new production of Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage, we knew from that initial reaction it was going to be an incredibly popular show.

“Since we opened less than two weeks ago the cast have experienced a standing ovation at every show. It really is the perfect Blackpool summer show so therefore it makes absolute sense to bring the UK tour back to Blackpool next summer.

“The audience reaction to Dirty Dancing really is something else – everyone absolutely loves it and is showing their appreciation at every opportunity.”

This new tour of Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage is the first time the show has come to Blackpool and follows two West End runs, two hit UK tours, and various sensational international productions.

The show is the classic story of Baby and Johnny, featuring the hit songs ‘Hungry Eyes’, ‘Hey! Baby’, ‘Do You Love Me?’ and the heart stopping ‘(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life.

Producer Karl Sydow added: “We have loved seeing the amazing reaction from Blackpool audiences, and we’re really excited to be able to announce DIRTY DANCING’s return in 2017.”

Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage is at Blackpool Opera House until Tuesday August 30. It will then return from Tuesday August 29 to Saturday September 2 2017.
