Lewis Griffiths as Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing at The Bristol Hippodrome

Casting the role of Johnny Castle, the role made famous by Patrick Swayze, must be a tough gig. But we are delighted and very eagerly looking forward to Dirty Dancing returning to the Bristol Hippodrome this year as part of a nine month UK tour.

The show will be at the theatre from Monday 03 – Saturday 08 July with none other than Lewis Griffiths taking the male lead in the iconic story.

Lewis graced the Bristol theatre two years ago as Nick Massi in the UK tour of Jersey Boys.

He is now coming back with Katie Hartland as Baby Houseman and Carlie Milner as Penny Johnson.

This will be a laid back entertaining night at the theatre. Interval Orders at the ready!
