Kee-eep dancing and get your tickets now for what is going to be most glittering night of the year - Strictly Musicals in aid of Marie Curie.
The date is September 26th and the venue is the Magherabuoy House Hotel for a night of ballroom, entertainment and fun.
Organised by Gerald McQuilken and Stepping Out Productions, the event will raise money for Marie Curie and will feature seven couples who are currently practising their steps.
The first couple is the hugely talented dancer Olivia Hayes who will be tripping the light fantastic with Mr (Ice Cream ) Nino Morelli.
Olivia can’t wait to get on the dance floor with Nino who says he was “quite nifty on the dance floor back in the day”.
At over 80 years of age, he will be the oldest contestant to date and is sure to bring style and refinement to the floor.
The second couple performing at Strictly Musicals 2015 will be the fabulous Emma (Sutcliffe) Durrant, former choreographer of Ballywillan Drama Group pantomimes and the one and only Roger Boyd of X Factor fame. This couple will be one of the highlights of the evening.
Third to grace the dance floor will be tutor Brenda Tosh and her partner Paschal Proctor, a former GAA player. They already have begun practising a very lively Charleston which will add sparkle and fun to the evening.
Next up will be Leroy Dempster, a well-known face on the local stage. He will be teaching Avril Lamont the American Smooth. Hopefully Avril, who runs Dunluce Castle Tearooms, can find time to rehearse at this busy tourist season at the Castle.
The fifth couple to spin round the dance floor local estate agent Kate Peden and event organiser Gerald McQuilken. Gerald is delighted to be doing a swing /jazz number with Kate.
Couple No6 to waltz away the evening is no other than the fabulous Maureen Roddy and Aaron Wright
There are sure to be a few surprises with Maureen!
Last but not least, the final couple performing at Strictly Musicals is the gorgeous and talented Cara Button Kelly who will dance the Paso Doble with Ballymoney hairdresser Stephen Cairns. This couple will add glamour and style to the evening.
Tickets are already on sale at the Magherabuoy House Hotel for this fantastic event!
With performances on the night too from Roger Boyd and the cast of Portrush Music Society’s Addams Family Musical, this is a night not to be missed!
