Australian dancer Josef Brown reprises his performance, created for the original 2004 Australian production, as the rugged dance instructor Johnny Castle. British RADA graduate Georgina Rich plays the role of Frances “Baby” Houseman, who falls for the dance instructor during her stay at the Kellermans holiday camp, where the story is set. The stage version includes the film’s Oscar-winning song “The Time of My Life.” Brown is a former principal dancer with the Australian Ballet, and Rich made her West End debut in this year’s revival of Honour, appearing with Diana Rigg, Martin Jarvis and Natascha McElhone.
