Baz Luhrmann's musical Strictly Ballroom is set to sweep audiences at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre off their feet next year – with a new tour directed by television judge Craig Revel Horwood.

The musical, based on the award-winning, global film phenomenon, will visit the Grand Theatre between October 5 and 10.

Strictly Ballroom will bring to life iconic songs including Love is in the Air, Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps, and Time After Time. The tour will also feature new songs by internationally acclaimed artists including Sia, David Foster and Eddie Perfect.

Craig Revel Horwood said: "I am absolutely delighted to be directing the 2020/21 UK tour of Strictly Ballroom The Musical – it’s going to be fab-u-lous.

"The theatre is where I come alive and it is there that I feel in my most creative element. Having directed the UK Arena Tour of Strictly Come Dancing for the past few years, I simply cannot wait to put my stamp on this iconic and much-loved musical.

"Expect some sexy moves, sizzling costumes and a simply sensational evening."

Strictly Ballroom tells the story of Scott Hastings, a talent, arrogant and rebellious young ballroom dancer. When Scott's radical dance moves see him fall out of favour with the Australian Federation, he finds himself dancing with Fran, a beginner with no moves at all. Inspired by one another, the unlikely pair gather the courage to defy both convention and their families – and discover that, to be winners, the steps don't need to strictly ballroom.

Tickets go on sale on Wednesday, December 11. To book, call the box office on 01902 429212.
