The new stage musical Strictly Ballroom in London - based on the Baz Luhrmann's 1992 multi-award-winning film
The inspiring story of Scott Hastings - a championship ballroom dancer who defies all the rules and follows his heart, not only to find his true calling but also his true love.
Featuring all the hit songs from the movie including Love Is In The Air, Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps and Time After Time along with a number of new songs.
Directed and choreographed by Drew McOnie with sets by Soutra Gilmour, costumes by Catherine Martin, lighting by Howard Hudson and sound by Gareth Owen. Created by Baz Luhrmann with book by Craig Pearce and Baz Luhrmann. Original screenplay by Baz Luhrmann, Craig Pearce and Andrew Bovell.

His London choreography credits include Max Webster's production of David Greig's stage adaption of Dr. Seuss's The Lorax at the Old Vic Theatre in 2016, returned 2017; Timothy Sheader's revival of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar at the Open Air Theatre Regent's Park in 2016, returned 2017; and Sean Holmes's revival of Alan Parker's Bugsy Malone at the Lyric Theatre Hammersmith in 2015, returned 2016.
Baz Luhrmannís musical Strictly Ballroom originated in 1984 as a stage play that he devised with a group of students at the National Institute of Dramatic Art in Sydney, Australia. It was staged a couple of other times before it was picked up as a film, with Baz Luhrmann involved in adapting the story and directing the movie which was released in 1992. The film, featuring Paul Mercurio as 'Scott Hastings' and Tara Morice as 'Fran', went on to become one of the most successful Australian films of all time. The stage musical adaptation of the film was originally presented at the Lyric Theatre in Sydney, Australia in April 2014, with seasons in Melbourne and Brisbane in the following year. The UK Premiere - directed and choreographed by Drew McOnie - took place at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds in December 2016, and it is this production that cmes to London's Piccadilly Theatre in April 2018.
