The stage musical is based upon Dirty Dancing which was a successful movie that was released few decades ago in 1987. The movie starred Patrick Swayze who played the character of Johnny Castle, a dance instructor at a resort and Jennifer Grey who played the role of Frances “Baby” Houseman. The story is set in the New York’s Catskills Mountains at a stuck-up summer resort where 17 year old Baby comes with her parents and older sister for a vacation. She is highly disappointed to discover that the resort is not even close to being a fun place. She is not at all interested in the activities at the resort. She is almost certain of spending the most boring summer of her entire life when she stumbles upon Johnny. Together the two perform several dance numbers and end up falling in love with one another. The stage show will feature several heart stopping hit songs from the movie such as, “Do you Love Me?”, “Hey Baby ”,“ The Time of My Life” and “Hungry Eyes”.
