REVIEW//An Evening Of Dirty Dancing At The Baths Hall

It has been a busy weekend in Scunthorpe. But we were invited along to review a full house on Saturday Night at Scunthorpe’s Biggest entertainment venue The Baths Hall.

I’m not going to lie I’ve never watched the film Dirty Dancing. I’ve seen parts and references to it and I did know pretty much all the songs. I had looked up the show before hand so I had an idea of what to expect. Some dancing and singing to songs from the film.

Outside the Baths about 20 minutes before showtime there were still people eager to get through the door outside queuing up. I didn’t quite prepare myself for how popular this show was, obviously with the women. The bar area was packed out and the noise of chattering excitement. The 5-minute call came around and everyone rushed to their seats to prepare for the show.

The vocals throughout the show were very impressive and the overall choreography was well thought out and nicely executed. It was nice to see the whole cast get involved in singing the different hits as a groups, couples and solos.
As always in the main arena of The Baths Hall the lighting and sound was top notch.

The show was good in the sense it didn’t drag on the same song or leave big gaps in-between. It flowed through song by song. If I were to speak on behalf of the audience reactions one of the biggest reactions would have been a topless man.

Songs the cast performed included well known tracks Big Girls Don’t Cry, Hey Baby, Wipeout, Do You Love Me, Hungry Eyes and the Oscar-winning (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life. (Which I just can’t help thinking of the Saga holiday advert when I hear it.)

For a Dirty Dancing fan that loves the songs, this show was the perfect night out. I was absolutely amazed at the amount of people out of their seats. I struggled to find anyone sat down at all. So for this I give the show ‘An Evening Of Dirty Dancing’ an applause for managing to get the whole room, women & men onto their dancing feet. It created such an energetic atmosphere.

If I had to pick something I wasn’t keen on about the show, it was maybe a little cheesy at times in the talking and audience interaction. But I don’t think people seemed to mind and it did get people interacting with the people next to them so I guess a little cheese doesn’t hurt.

Overall as a package the show fulfilled the needs of the soundtrack song lovers and people had smiles on their faces and all seemed to have a great time. There were some particularly passionate dancers on the balcony who were so excited they kept raising their arms with a wooo & high five to their friend.

The cast ended the night with a selfie of themselves with the Baths Hall crowd. It was a little confusing because they asked the audience to tweet or Facebook the cast in any photos taken throughout the night, yet a lot of people were told by staff to put their phones away so I don’t think it was quite clear if you were or weren’t allowed to take photos that could maybe be a bit clearer at future shows or mentioned on announcement.


The popular show will return to The Baths Hall late next year on 2nd October 2015. So check the website to book tickets or go into the box office at The Baths Hall or Plowright Theatre.


If you have any photos/videos from this weekend or any in the future send them in an attachment with your name to or post them on our Facebook wall. Our posts are reaching better than ever week by week. 6,000 to 10,000 on average weekly. Keep supporting Scunthorpe Nights.

Review// Jasper Carrott – Stand Up And Rock

Jasper Carrott took to a sold-out Baths Hall in Scunthorpe with his Stand Up and Rock tour.

The show is exactly as it says on the tin – a mixture of standup comedy from Jasper, and The Bev Bevan Band – covering mostly 60’s and 70’s rock hits from the likes of Jimi Hendrix, The Stones and The Beatles, with a little Motown  and R&B thrown in for good measure.

The band itself featured a few famous faces, Bev Bevan himself was the drummer from the Electric Light Orchestra, The Move’s Trevor Burton on Bass guitar, Geoff Turton the lead singer from The Rockin’ Berries, and Joy Strachan-Brain of the celtic rock band Quill also featured.

The first act opened with Jasper Carrott performing a solo standup set. He began the show recounting his first gig at The Baths Hall in 1974, which is one of his more well-known sketches.

Jasper continued his set keeping in theme with the era of music, recanting stories and anecdotes from the 60’s and 70’s, adding in his clever wit, delivery and sarcasm. After the routine, The Bev Bevan Band took to the stage.

The songs were played with expert precision, as you’d expect from a superband of veteran musicians. Each member of the band made playing their instrument look effortless. The song choices were excellent, and had most audience members singing along, with Jasper occasionally popping up on stage between songs for a couple more gags.

After a short interval, the second act followed the same format as the first, headed by more standup from Jasper Carrott. Again, the band followed, although this time Jasper donned an acoustic guitar and joined in on a couple of songs – including a cover of Status Quo’s Rockin’ All Over The World.

My personal favourite cover of the night was Fleetwood Mac – The Chain, featuring Joy Strachan-Brain on lead vocals. See the video here.

The show ended on a high with the audience on their feet applauding, giving off an electric vibe in the auditorium.

My only negative to the show was that being a Jasper Carrott fan, I’d have liked to have seen a little more standup than music, however I did like the mix of comedy and music, as it made for an interesting show.

There’s still quite a few dates left on the tour of Stand Up And Rock, I’d certainly recommend it to any Jasper Carrott fans as he is still on form and still entertaining crowds.
