THIS PRODUCTION IS AT PAVILIONS TEIGNMOUTH, NOT THE ICE FACTORY
Wonderfully funny and heart-warming, Stepping Out charts the lives of seven women and one man attempting to overcome their inhibitions and tap their troubles away at a weekly dance class.
Initially all thumbs and left feet, this unlikely but loveable crew is just getting to grips with the basics when they are asked to perform in a charity gala, and can’t quite believe it when they agree!
Each of these unique characters has a goal and story to tell. Over the course of several months we follow tap teacher Mavis and her colourful troupe through their journey towards a hopeful triumph at their recital finale.
This uplifting comedy is a tale of tap, tenacity and truth, where friendship is found, discoveries are made and challenges overcome. Feel good theatre at its best.
