AUDIENCES are set to have the time of their lives next month when An Evening of Dirty Dancing takes the Swan Theatre by storm on March 1 and 2.

Matt Firth and Stephanie Ticknell-Smith head up the cast of this sexy song and dance spectacular which features all the hits from one of the greatest ever movie soundtracks.

She’s Like the Wind, Big Girls Don’t Cry, Hey Baby, Wipeout, Do You Love Me, Be My Baby, Hungry Eyes and, of course, the Oscar-winning (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life are all performed in this slickly choreographed theatrical treat.

Firth is originally from Leeds and has enjoyed a prolific West End career having appeared in the Rod Stewart rock musical Tonight’s the Night, Fame the Musical and a season with the world famous Royal Shakespeare Company.

Ticknell-Smith recently played the role of Bridget in A Slice of Saturday Night. This production marks her UK touring debut.

The show’s producer Paul Spicer said: “The atmosphere is always electric. There’s something about this soundtrack that ignites even the dullest of winter nights. We totally encourage our audience to get up and dance and sing and immerse themselves in the summer of 1963.”

The show starts at 8pm and tickets cost £18 from the Box Office on 01905 611427 or visit
