‘It’s such a high energy show full of incredible dance and music, and this brand new tour is going to be a fresh and exciting new take on it.I can’t wait to bring the show to Portsmouth; we’re going to absolutely blow the roof off the Kings Theatre next March.’

The show will play at the Southsea venue from March 28 until April 2. Gareth plays Willard, friend to Ren McCormack, the latter played in the hit 1984 film by Kevin Bacon. Featuring ’80s hits including Let’s Hear It For The Boy and the title track, this show will get audiences on their feet.
