The Walker Center presents ‘Dirty Dancing: The Classic Story on Stage’

Staff Report

WILKESBORO — “Dirty Dancing: The Classic Story on Stage” brings an unprecedented live experience, exploding with heart-pounding music, passionate romance, and sensationally sexy dancing, to the Walker Center on Nov. 10. Seen by millions across the globe, this worldwide smash hit tells the classic story of Baby and Johnny, two fiercely independent, young spirits from different worlds who come together in what will be the most challenging and triumphant summer of their lives.

On vacation with her older sister and parents, Baby shows little interest in the resort activities. Instead, she discovers her own entertainment when she stumbles upon the staff quarters during an all-night dance party in full swing. Baby’s life is about to change forever when she is thrown into the deep end as Johnny’s leading lady both on-stage and off with breathtaking consequences.

“Dirty Dancing” features hit songs “Hungry Eyes,” “Hey Baby,” “Do You Love Me?” and the heart-stopping “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.”

Showtime is 8 p.m. and doors will open at 7:30 p.m. This performance is sponsored by Wells Fargo.
