Strictly Come Dancing’s Joanne Clifton will reprise her star role in Flashdance - The Musical when it comes to the Ipswich Regent next April.

It’s good news for her Suffolk fans, who had been told she wasn’t available for next year’s dates. Joanne is no stranger to Ipswich; having performed with Gary Avis at his fundraising gala at the theatre last year.

“I am having the best time ever on this tour and so am delighted to be staying on for 2018. We have so much fun on stage and off and I really am dancing like I’ve never danced before,” said Joanne.

Flashdance - The Musical is the inspiring and unforgettable story of 18-year-old Alex, a welder by day and flashdancer by night, who dreams of going to the prestigious Shipley Dance Academy and becoming a professional dancer. When a romance complicates her ambitions, she harnesses it to drive her dream.

• See it at the Ipswich Regent April 23-28.
