Arriving at the Sydney Lyric in March 2014, STRICTLY BALLROOM THE MUSICAL will tango, sashay and bogo pogo its way on to the stage thanks to the original creative team behind the classic 1992 film, including director and co-writer Baz Luhrmann, set and costume designer Catherine Martin, choreographer John "Cha Cha" O'Connell and co-writer Craig Pearce.

STRICTLY BALLROOM THE MUSICAL is the inspiring story of a championship ballroom dancer who defies all the rules to follow his heart.

This uplifting and courageous tale originated as a stage play that Baz Luhrmann devised with a group of other students at the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) in 1984, before dancing into the hearts of audiences worldwide as the award winning feature film.

In a brand new all-singing, all-dancing theatrical production, STRICTLY BALLROOM THE MUSICAL will bring this iconic story to life, featuring the beloved music from the original film as well as new compositions.

Be a part of history and experience the drama, the humour, the romance in the sparkling, sequined spectacular that inspired the world to dance.
