A New Play with added Strictly!...

A New Play with added Strictly! ‘

 

Come Dance With Me’ is a warm-hearted, poignant family saga with ballroom and Hollywood-era dancing. The show features show-stopping Strictly Ballroom dances and glorious Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers style routines, expertly choreographed by Strictly Come Dancing’s Richard Marcel, who has worked with Madonna, Kylie, Britney, and Olivia Colman, to name but a few.

 

LEN GOODMAN, professional ballroom dancer, Strictly Come Dancing judge and Patron of the show, says “I urge you to support this play Come Dance With Me. It shows how a working-class kid has to battle to make it in the world of Ballroom. This story could have been my story - and it's the story of anyone who struggles against disadvantage to find their success in the world."

 

The show is based on the true story of two battling sisters: Lillian wants to be a professional dancer and Joy wants to own a string of shops. They both have dreams, but who will get what they want? Spanning the years 1938 to 1951, including the tumultuous years of the Second World War, the two young girls go through extraordinary circumstances and challenges in their quest for a better life.

 

The cast of eight dancer/actors include Sam Archer from Channel 4’s Humans and ITV’s Mr Selfridge. Sam created the role of Edward Scissorhands for the stage and has played Prince in Swan Lake, Lermontov in Red Shoes and Pilot in Cinderella.

 

Steph Elstob was seen in ITV’s Victoria, as famous ballerina Marie Taglioni, and has danced in films Anna Karenina, Avengers – Age of Ultron, Beauty and the Beast and Alice Through the Looking Glass.

 

Come Dance With Me is at The Apex in Bury St Edmunds on Sunday 6 October at 7.30pm. Tickets are available from www.theapex.co.uk or 01284 758000.
