Strictly Come Dancing star Kevin Clifton will star in the 2020/2021 UK and Ireland tour of Baz Luhrmann’s Strictly Ballroom The Musical.

He will play the lead role of Scott Hastings, his first role since announcing his departure from BBC One’s flagship entertainment show. The musical is based on the award-winning film of the same name.

Kevin said, “I’m beyond excited to be finally fulfilling a lifelong ambition to play Scott Hastings in Strictly Ballroom The Musical. When I was 10 years old I first watched the movie that would become my favourite film of all time. This is my dream role. Plus I get to work with Craig Revel Horwood again! I really can’t wait to don the golden jacket and waltz all over the UK from September this year in what’s set to be an incredible show!”

The show is directed by Craig Revel Horwood and it will kick off in Nottingham on 26th September 2020. It will then waltz around the UK & Ireland before culminating in Reading in June 2021.

Strictly Ballroom The Musical tells the beguiling story of Scott Hastings, a talented, 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, this unlikely pair gather the courage to defy both convention and their families – and discover that, to be winners, the steps don’t need to be strictly ballroom.

The musical features a show-stopping book by Baz Luhrmann and Craig Pearce, and it brings together a sublime cast of over 20 world class performers. This tour will also feature some amazing new songs by internationally acclaimed artists including Sia, David Foster and Eddie Perfect.
