The twinkled-toed super-talented siblings will be tripping the light fantastic

A pair of Strictly stars will be waltzing their way to Wellingborough to bring their special socially-distanced all-singing, all-dancing evening of sparkle and glamour to the stage.

Strictly Champion siblings Kevin and Joanne Clifton will be hot-footing it to The Castle Theatre with an intimate show produced for a socially distanced audience.

Their touring show, An Evening With Kevin and Joanne Clifton for a Socially Distanced Audience will see the Strictly siblings sing songs, share stories of their dancing lives, and perform some favourite Ballroom and Latin dances with their professional partners.

Kevin said: “Although we all miss performing and producing live shows and it is great to be able to get back on stage, we know people’s health and safety is paramount.

"Myself, Joanne and our producers feel a responsibility to the theatre industry to help rebuild audience confidence, so that one day theatres will be full again.”

The talented brother and sister were originally due to tour together for the first time earlier this year in the world’s leading Ballroom show, Burn the Floor, but unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the tour was unable to go ahead.

While the tour has been successfully rescheduled to 2021, Kevin will now be headlining it without his sister, as Joanne’s prior commitments mean she is no longer available.

Keen to still work with his sister, Kevin and the show’s producers came up with the idea of the An Evening With show, for a smaller audience.

Producer Paul Irving of Strictly Theatre Co. said: “We feel this is a great way to support venues across the country, as well as provide work for freelancers from the theatre industry who have had limited support.

"The aim is to boost audience confidence levels so that they feel safe to come to a theatre and watch live shows again. It also gives venues the opportunity to perfect safe social distancing measures.”

They have both also won the highly sought after glitter ball trophy on the hit BBC show Strictly Come Dancing - Joanne in 2016 withTV presenter Ore Oduba and Kevin in 2018 with journalist Stacey Dooley.

The show will give audiences a glimpse into the Clifton’s dancing lives, from young children growing up in a dancing family, to the successful performers they are today.
