The ultimate feel-good comedy, with live music and tap dancing!

A modern classic about a group of strangers who come together every week for a tap dancing class in their local church hall, this comedy features a cast of ten characters, who gradually form friendships and reveal secrets, whilst their dynamic dance teacher Mavis strives to keep them in time.

This play won the Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Comedy and has been has performed all over the world – now it’s your chance to see it at the Stephen Joseph Theatre for the very first time, directed by the SJT’s Artistic Director Paul Robinson, with the same creative team who brought you last summer’s hit comedy The 39 Steps.

Stepping Out was also made into a film starring Liza Minelli and Julie Walters, and the play recently enjoyed a successful West End run. This brand new production promises to be fun-filled, heart-warming and toe-tapping.
