LIMA — If you’re a fan of the movie “Dirty Dancing,” visit Veterans Memorial Civic Center to swoon over Johnny and Baby.
This is the third in the Broadway Series that the Civic Center Foundation has booked.
The musical follows the script of the movie version of “Dirty Dancing.” The classic story follows Johnny and Baby as they fall in love.
“Absolutely, it’s the same script, everything basically. If you loved ‘Dirty Dancing’ the movie, this is something you’ll love too,” said Jolene Molaski, operations manager of Modo Media in Lima. “Seeing it live will be so much better.”
The musical features the hit songs, “Hungry Eyes,” “Hey Baby,” “Do You Love Me?” and “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life.”
The performers travel all over the country performing the musical. Some of them have performed on Broadway. The stage actors even look like their counterparts from the movie.
The audience will have a chance to take part in the production.
“When they dance down the aisles, you’re going to be part of the show. That’s what it’s going to seem like,” said Molaski.
