Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
The nation’s favourite ballroom couple, Anton du Beke and Erin Boag, will bring together the worlds of ballroom dancing and musical theatre in their brand new show for 2019.
Set to iconic theatrical music from shows including The Phantom of the Opera, Mary Poppins, 42nd Street, Wicked, Top Hat, Hairspray and Jersey Boys, and featuring stunning costumes and breath-taking choreography, Dance Those Magic Musicals will burst onto stage from January 2019.
Joining the illustrious dancing couple live on stage will be the London Concert Orchestra with conductor Richard Balcombe, a sensational West End dance ensemble and the brilliant star vocalist, Lance Ellington. The show will also feature the very popular Q&A section providing some fun interaction with the audience.
Anton and Erin have been professional dance partners since 1997. They joined the inaugural series of BBC behemoth Strictly Come Dancing in 2004, and Anton has gone on to appear in all 15 series of the show, partnering with the likes of Jerry Hall, Ann Widdecombe, Ruth Langsford and Katie Derham. Erin appeared in the first 10 seasons, finishing as runners up with celebrity party Colin Jackson in the show’s third series.
Speaking of the new tour, Anton said, “Get ready for West End live on the dance floor! Erin and I can’t wait to bring our new show to a venue near you. Expect fabulous dancing, music and song.”
