Preview: Have a peek at the dancin’ feet in Stepping Out

A new production of the uplifting comedy by Richard Harris is opening at London’s Vaudeville Theatre in March and it’s on tap for success.

Want to see a heart-warming, toe-tapping musical? Look no further than Stepping Out, where an ever-patient instructor tries to teach a diverse group of students how to tap their troubles away.

Opening 1 March 2017, the show stars Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden. Appearing alongside her are Angela Griffin, Nicola Stephenson, Tamzin Outhwaite and Tracy-Ann Oberman – all well-loved television and West End actresses with many credits to their names.

Choreographer Tim Jackson is in charge of their exuberant dancing, but he jokes “they are not supposed to be good”. From this recently released video of rehearsals, it looks like he and the cast are having a blast so far.

Stepping Out originally opened in 1984 in London, where it ran for almost three years. A film adaptation was released in 1991 with Liza Minnelli as the dance instructor.

With pre-West End dates for the new Stepping Out production announced at the Theatre Royal Bath, the Richmond Theatre and the Cambridge Arts Theatre beginning in mid October, we can hardly wait for the cast to bring their enthusiasm and their tenacity to triumph over their left feet to London.

Stepping Out will play at Vaudeville Theatre in the West End from 1 March – 17 June 2017. Tickets are available now at
