Matthew Mckenna and Tricia Adele Turner to Join AN EVENING OF DIRTY DANCING Tour as New Leads

Stage Acts Entertainment's smash hit tribute to one of the greatest movie soundtracks of all time, An Evening of Dirty Dancing: The Tribute Show has today announced new casting and summer tour dates. Now in its 4th smash-hit year, the show is a fully choreographed highly interactive celebration of the music from the iconic movie.

Matthew Mckenna will lead the production direct from the final cast of London's We Will Rock You. His previous theatre credits include Riff Raff in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Electra in Starlight Express and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera. He's joined by Tricia Adele Turner who recently played played Vivienne Kensington in Legally Blonde and Jane in Carnaby Street The Musical. The production also features Matt Cox, James Williams Davies, Laura Ellis, Peter Houston, Victoria Rachael Mccabe and Grace Reynolds.

An Evening of Dirty Dancing: The Tribute Show is directed by Paul Spicer with choreography by Leanne Harwood. The award-winning soundtrack to Dirty Dancing is one of the best-selling albums of all time and all the hits are here, superbly performed in this fast moving, slickly choreographed theatrical treat. Songs include: Big Girls Don't Cry, Hey Baby, Wipeout, Do You Love Me, Hungry Eyes and, of course, the Oscar-winning (I've Had) The Time of My Life.

Paul Spicer said "The atmosphere is always electric. There's something about this soundtrack that ignites even the dullest of days. We totally encourage our audiences to dance and sing and immerse themselves in the summer of '63, and it seems they can't get enough of it. This is a multi-award winning soundtrack steeped in nostalgia. I challenge anyone to come along and not have a fantastic time."
