ST HELENS Theatre Royal is set to keep people dancing - with three Strictly shows coming to town this year, starting from Tuesday.

Fans of the BBC hit show Strictly Come Dancing will be dancing in the aisles as former and current dancers grace the stage of the Corporation Street venue in 2020.

St Helens Star:

On Tuesday, January 21, the party gets started with former Strictly professional Kristina Rihanoff - famed for her dance with journalist John Sergeant - bringing a one night only show of Dance To The Music.

The show choreographed by Rihanoff will be hosted by Jake Quickenden, who first found fame on the X Factor, I’m A Celebrity and Dancing On Ice, with an exciting troupe of dancers featuring South African Dancing With The Stars professionals, Marcella Solimeo and Dylon Daniels.

St Helens Star:

Then on Monday, March 23, former pros Ian Waite and Vincent Simone will be bringing their new show Act Two to the theatre showcasing old-fashioned variety - dance, comedy and song!

With beautiful costumes, gorgeous lighting and world class routines, including the Viennese Waltz, the Foxtrot, the Rumba… and of course… there has to be another incredible Argentine Tango routine by the master Vincent Simone.

St Helens Star:

Then on Tuesday, June 23, the 'Italian stallion' and three time Strictly finalist Giovanni Pernice will bring his new show This is Me to the stage with his fourth UK tour.

The show promises to pay homage to the music and dances that have inspired Giovanni’s career, from a competition dancer to one of the biggest names on the hit BBC show.
