A Strictly dancer will star in an upcoming musical.

The Wedding Singer stars Kevin Clifton for a strictly limited season at the newly opened Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre from Thursday, January 30, to Sunday, March 1.

Based on the 1998 Hollywood Blockbuster film of the same name starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, The Wedding Singer features music from the Tony Award-nominated composer Matthew Sklar of Elf the Musical and The Prom.

After thrilling audiences in the UK tour of Rock of Ages this year Kevin Clifton will return to the stage to play Robbie Hart in The Wedding Singer in 2020. Kevin Clifton is an international Ballroom and Latin dancer and has won numerous titles, including the British Latin Championships four times. He is best known as a pro dancer on BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing and is the only pro dancer to ever dance in four consecutive finals.

Kevin made his musical theatre debut in Dirty Dancing the Musical at the Aldwych Theatre in London’s West End and went on to become a principle dancer in Burn The Floor Dance Company performing in the West End, on Broadway and across the world.

The Wedding Singer is set in 1985. Hair is huge, greed is good and rockstar wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey’s favourite wedding singer. When his own fiancée dumps him at the altar a seriously bummed out Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Can sweet-natured Julia and her best friend Holly lure Robbie out of the dumpster and back into the limelight? Or is he going to see her head off down the aisle with Wall Street bad boy Glenn?
