“This show is camp, colourful, full of fantastic dance numbers and a must for any Strictly Come Dancing fan”
As an avid fan of the hit TV show, Strictly Come Dancing, I knew as soon as this musical was announced, that I had to see it. Not only is the musical Directed and Co-choreographed by Craig Revel Horwood, but it also stars professional dancer and 2018 winner of Strictly Come Dancing, Kevin Clifton, alongside finalist from 2020 Maisie Smith. Surely this was an instant hit with me? Well, read on to find out!
As we take our seats in the auditorium, we are greeted with the recognisable voice of Craig Revel Horwood himself, albeit in his native Australian accent. He gives us the usual rules around photography etc, but also insists that we have a FAB-U-LOUS time. The set by Mark Walters is reminiscent of the inside of a ballroom, with lights adorning the top of the set, however it was noticeable that some lights where not working, perhaps the reason we had a 20-minute delay to the start of the show? Nevertheless, it did not distract from the overall staging.
