Gotta Sing, Gotta Dance (theatre)

The big summer show at the Devonshire Park Theatre during August is the latest incarnation of Gotta Sing Gotta Dance. It was created by Eastbourne Theatres Artistic Director, Chris Jordan, together with musical director, Robert Cousins. As well as now being a home town favourite, the show has also since embarked on a nationwide tour. The new show will feature all the best bits of the previous shows and includes some brand new numbers. Plus there will be a new whistle-stop tour of the entire West End completed in under four minutes!

The production is two hours of spectacular song and dance numbers from both stage and screen. You can expect to see and hear songs from Singin In The Rain, Les Miserables, 42nd Street, Oliver and Hairspray. All will be performed by a West End cast accompanied by an excellent live band.

"An unforgettable night at the musicals!"

  1. Fun afternoon at Gotta Sing Gotta Dance on Saturday. The fast-moving show draws together over sixty songs from musicals old and new including - shock, horror - a few I didn't know! The three women and three men of the cast throw themselves into the wide range of dance genres with amazing aplomb, and the singing is easily West End standard. Only one song became overpowered shoutyness but it was from Sister Act, which I haven't yet seen, so could have been accurate to the original. The band are excellent and create a much richer sound than expected from four musicians. I particularly liked the imaginative pairings of songs - Lambeth Walk with 42nd Street and Lady Is A Tramp with Wannabe. The show is slick and sharp throughout with tons of energy. My highlights were If, Stars, Wilkommen & Money, the a cappella tapping, and the West End 4 minutes. However my partner mentioned different songs as his favourites, and the friends who came with us selected others again!
