Over the past weekend, I had the absolute pleasure of being given ticket to see Strictly Ballroom: the Musical by Nuffnang (thank you Nuffnang!).
I have always loved Strictly Ballroom the movie. I remember watching it as a kid and just wishing I could dance like that (listen to the rhythm), that I would meet some cute Australian who would sweep me off my feet (Oh, hey, wait a minute...).
Well, that last part is true, but only when I realised that they were Australian. It just never occurred to me, I just figured they were from some other part of the US that talked a bit funny compared to me. Whoops.
Anyway, like the truly terrible blogger I've become I didn't take a single picture of the theatre (which was dazzling-ly sparkly as one would imagine) or of Inspector Climate and me dressed up for a rare night out on the town (I wore make up ya'll!).
But the show was so much fun! The singing, the dancing, the enthusiasm – I came home tapping my feet and singing 'Time after Time' – as you do.
Anyway, if you're in Melbourne and get a chance to see Strictly Ballroom, do it!
