Based on RKO’s Motion Picture
Book by Matthew White & Howard Jacques

Featuring Strictly Come Dancing Champion Joanne Clifton as Dale Tremont, Ovation is delighted to present the London fringe premiere of Top Hat. An all singing, all dancing musical theatre classic packed full of Irving Berlin’s greatest hits including ‘Cheek to Cheek’, ‘Let’s Face the Music & Dance’, ‘Puttin’ on the Ritz’ and the title song. The show is a wonderfully entertaining story wrapped around Irving Berlin’s magical score. Celebrating the best of 1930s, Top Hat tells the story of Broadway sensation Jerry Travers who dances his way across Europe to win the heart of society girl Dale in a riotous mistaken-identity plot.
