Back in 1987 a low-budget film captured the hearts of cinemagoers the world over as two relatively unknown performers – Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey – danced their way to movie immortality, and $214m at the box office.

Since then, generation after generation has continued to take the legendary production – Dirty Dancing – to their hearts.

Now a new tribute show inspired by everyone's favourite dance movie is taking to the stage at Cromer Pier's Pavilion Theatre.

A Night of Dirty Dancing fast forwards theatregoers to Kellerman's end of season show, retelling the tale from an alternative perspective, and featuring the classic hits from the film.

Recast and re-scripted for 2016, more than 100 dates are already scheduled for the tour.

There's no doubt music and dance fans are crying out for a new brand-new dose of Dirty Dancing, according to the show's producer Michael Taylor.

'Having enjoyed many sold-out performances as we criss-crossed the country we are now proud to announce an even more extensive tour with a larger cast,' said Michael.
