This classic Australian story returns to the Sydney stage in May/June. STRICTLY BALLROOM THE MUSICAL is the inspiring story of a championship ballroom dancer who defies all the rules to follow his heart. This uplifting and courageous tale originated as a stage play that Baz Luhrmann created as a student at the National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA) in Sydney back in 1984 and then turned it into a global movie sensation.
The show features songs from the hit 1992 film including "Love is in the Air", "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps" and "Time After Time", as well as new songs from internationally acclaimed artists and composers such as Sia, David Foster and Eddie Perfect. Strictly Ballroom has become a much loved Australian musical that is about to take the London’s West End by storm after successful productions in North America.
With a love story as its heart and a lot of ballroom dancing as its attraction, this return to Sydney of this beloved tale is not to be missed!
