“Dirty Dancing: The Classic Story On Stage” comes to The Classic Center Theatre in Athens on Dec. 1 as part of a new North American tour.
Tickets will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m., and range from $39 to $75. A pre-sale for all tickets will be available early on Thursday at 10 a.m.
The show features an eight-piece band that performs the timeless hits on stage. The production’s book is written by Eleanor Bergstein, author of the original script of the film, and the North American tour is choreographed by Michele Lynch based on the original choreography by Kate Champion.
“As I learned how many people watched the movie over and over and over,” said Bergstein, “I began to think that what they really wanted was to share more physically in the event, to step through the screen and be there while the story was happening. And if that was true, then its natural form was theatre – live audiences watching live bodies dancing and singing here and now in the present.”
