Fourteen youngsters from the Newark Avenue dance studios will be appearing at The Cresset on June 29, when the producers of An Evening of Dirty Dancing: The Tribute Show bring their brand new production - Summer Dreaming.

It is a new concert production that pays homage to a bygone era celebrating the iconic music from the 50s & 60s.

Relive the good old days with the Summer Dreaming gang as they take you back to a time of jiving, soda shops and high school hops. It’s a highly interactive rollercoaster of fun and frolics.

Musical theatre stalwart Julian Essex-Spurrier continues to lead the production having played numerous iconic leading roles including Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever, Rocky in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Riff in West Side Story and Rusty in Starlight Express.

The show director said: “I’m thrilled that we have the Tu Danse students joining us for this special evening.

“We believe it’s very important to give local talent a platform, and showcase that talent wherever we travel.

“There’s nothing better than immersing yourself in the music that you love. To feel all of the nostalgia. We like to get the crowd involved, it’s the audience who are the most important people in the room.”
