It's the dance musical you that will blind side you. Telling the life stories of occupants of a dance class and their teacher. This is the feel good production that everyone needs to see be it on film or on the stage.

You'll fall in love with the characters and their life stories, you'll find yourself angry, sad and happy all in the space of 2 hours. To hear that we'll finally get to see this on the stage makes us immensely happy.

Amanda Holden, Angela Griffin, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Tamzin Outhwaite and Nicola Stephenson will be Stepping Out in the West End when Richard Harris's award-winning comedy opens at London’s Vaudeville Theatre with preview performances from 1 March 2017 and opening night for press on 14 March 2017.

Directed by Maria Friedman, this brand new staging of the wonderfully funny and heart-warming play Stepping Out will first tour the UK from 12 October 2016 including dates at Theatre Royal Bath, Richmond Theatre, Cambridge Arts Theatre and Chichester Festival Theatre, as previously announced. Further casting for the West End production is still to be confirmed.

Stepping Out charts the lives of seven women and one man attempting to tap their troubles away at a weekly dancing class. Initially all thumbs and left feet, the group is just getting to grips with the basics when they are asked to take part in a charity gala. Over the course of several months we meet the group, and all of them have a story to tell. There's perfectionist Vera, mouthy Maxine and uptight Andy, bubbly Sylvia and shy Dorothy, eager Lynne and cheerful Rose, and, of course, Geoffrey. At the piano is the dour Mrs Fraser and spurring them all on, the ever-patient Mavis.
