The 1987 film Dirty Dancing was a huge hit although it had a low production budget and relatively unknown cast, thanks to neat choreography and a romantic storyline revolving around 17-year-old Frances "Baby" Houseman and dance instructor Johnny Castle.

The movie was adapted for the West End stage in 2004 by Eleanor Bergstein, the film's scriptwriter and co-producer. It went on to break ticket sales records in Britain and Germany.

This year, Hong Kong fans reminiscing about classic songs such as Hungry Eyes and Hey Baby from the show will be in for a treat . The cast of 35, backed by a live orchestra, will perform at the Cultural Centre from April 19 . Tickets, priced from HK$395 to HK$995, go on sale at Urbtix ticketing outlets on Tuesday. The first 100 buyers at the Cultural Centre will get a free copy of the musical soundtrack from the Dirty Dancing original London cast.

CitySeen has two pairs of A-Reserve tickets (worth HK$795 each) to give away to Dirty Dancing fans. To win the tickets, tell us the name of the actress who played Baby in the original movie. E-mail your answers to with your name, contact number and address, and include "Dirty Dancing" in the subject line, by 6pm next Friday.
