Strictly Come Dancing’s favourite couple Janette Manrara and Aljaž Škorjanec have announced the rescheduled dates for their new dance spectacular Remembering The Oscars.
Having been due to start earlier this month, the tour was postponed following the closure of theatres across the UK as part of the nationwide effort to combat the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
The 38-date tour, in which Janette and Aljaž give the red carpet treatment to Oscar-winning songs, dances, movies and stars, will now begin on Saturday March 20 2021 and end on Tuesday May 4 2021.
All tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled dates.
Aljaz and Janette are favourites on BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing.
Janette said: “We are so thrilled to have the opportunity to put on this magnificent show that we are so proud of in 2021.
“We hope that when these difficult times pass, we can bring joy and smiles to everyone’s hearts; nothing would make us happier.”
Aljaž said: “It was heartbreaking to not be able to open with our show this year.
“But we are now so thrilled that our beautiful show will still be seen by the UK audiences next year. Cannot wait to be back on stage and perform for you all.”
In addition, 10 free VIP tickets, which include a meet and greet with Aljaž and Janette, will be made available to NHS staff, at every venue, as a way of the[roducers and Aljaž and Janette showing their gratitude to these front-line heroes.
Aljaž said: “We know what we are offering is a relatively small gesture, but we want to acknowledge the amazing effort of the NHS staff who are facing unimaginable pressure on a daily basis as they treat patients across the UK affected by coronavirus.
“We’ll be rolling out the proverbial red carpet for these heroes and we look forward to thanking them in person throughout the tour.”
