Life in Orange County

Dirty Dancing comes to Segerstrom Center

The timeless love story of Dirty Dancing is hitting the stage at Segerstrom Center in Costa Mesa. Individual tickets to the Orange County premiere of Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage are now available and start at just $29! Catch the staged musical of the worldwide smash-hit film from February 3rd through February 15th, 2015.

North American tour of DIRTY DANCING – THE CLASS

It’s the summer of 1963, and 17-year-old Frances “Baby” Houseman is on vacation in New York’s Catskill Mountains with her older sister and parents. Mesmerized by the racy dance moves and pounding rhythms she discovers in the resort’s staff quarters, Baby can’t wait to be part of the scene, especially when she catches sight of Johnny Castle, the resort’s sexy dance instructor. Passions ignite and Baby’s life changes forever when she is thrown in to the deep end as Johnny’s leading lady, both onstage and off.

Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage was first performed at the Theatre Royal in Sydney, Australia in November 2004 before embarking upon a hugely successful tour of Australia and New Zealand. A new production opened at the Theater Neue Flora in Hamburg, Germany in March 2006 where it broke records for achieving the highest advance in European history. The production then began performances on London’s West End in October 2006 and went on to become the longest running show in the history of the Aldwych Theatre.
