Kiss Me Quickstep will be the theatrical event at the Winter Garden this summer and the show includes the brilliant Alan Burkitt who returns to Eastbourne following his jaw-dropingly good performance in the fantastic Top Hat at the Congress Theatre last year.

Alan, whose previous credits also include Singin’ in the Rain and 42nd Street at Chichester Festival Theatre, We Will Rock You in the West End and The Prince in Adam Cooper’s Shall We Dance at Sadlers Wells, is one of the most accomplished actor dancers of his generation.

Kiss Me Quickstep is an exciting venture for the Winter Garden, which is being transformed with the addition of raised seating to create a brand-new space - turning the dancefloor into a Theatre In The Round. The show is a bitter-sweet comedy from acclaimed playwright Amanda Whittington, set against the finals of the Blackpool National Amateur Dance Championships - so expect plenty of fake tan and feathers, sequins and smudged mascara from tears of both laughter and sadness as we witness three different couples following their dancefloor dreams.

This is a great night out for Strictly and drama fans alike and the perfect pick-me-up night out
