Wayne Sleep’s national tour has so far wowed audiences, receiving raving reviews as he has taken them on a trip through memory lane.
In Stafford, with the use of his own rare film footage and photos, Wayne will describe how he became a Principal Dancer at the Royal Ballet with numerous roles specially created for him before moving on to starring roles in the West End, founding his own dance company, and touring the world with it in his show Dash.
“Wayne Sleep is the greatest virtuoso dancer the Royal Ballet has ever produced” - Dame Ninette De Valois, the founder of the Royal Ballet
He will describe his first steps into the world of film and TV are illustrated with rarely seen clips and cover his own TV series The Hot Shoe Show, the prestige of being a special guest on The Morecambe and Wise Show, starring alongside Sean Connery, and all of the off-camera gossip about The Real Marigold Hotel. Bringing it all up to the present Wayne will cover his recent appearances in Celebrity Reality shows and will talk about his long-standing association with the Royal Family, including his relationship with Princess Margaret and his close personal friendship with Diana, Princess of Wales.
“This intimate insight into his life was interspersed with footage from Wayne’s private archive … I think it’s fair to say that we were all captivated by his stories and we will keep an eye out for what’s to come next in Wayne’s world.” - Spalding Today
