Following the postponement of their performance at Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn on 27 April 2021, Strictly Come Dancing stars Aljaž Škorjanec and Janette Manrara have announced they are to star in a streamed performance of their brand new, never before seen dance spectacular ‘Remembering the Oscars’ for a limited three-week season starting on 27 March 2021.
In what is sure to become one of the most popular streamed events of the year, this one-hour TV special will see Aljaž & Janette roll out the red carpet to celebrate the greatest award-winning songs, films and dance routines from the Golden Ages of Hollywood through to Disney family favourites and beyond.
Aljaž & Janette will be joined by a cast boasting some of the UK’s best dancers and singers on a specially constructed stage, as they dance their way through a dazzling array of bespoke and original musical arrangements of over 25 songs from classic films.
The announcement follows the news that their Remembering the Oscars UK tour has been postponed until March 2022 due to the continuing uncertainty regarding the reopening of venues currently closed across the country as part of the nationwide effort to combat the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
Aljaž and Janette said, “We feel awful having to postpone our Remembering the Oscars tour for a second time due to the pandemic, but we are delighted to have been given the opportunity to film some of the highlights from the show. We were devastated that another year would go by without sharing what we truly believe is our best show to date. Hopefully this will give our audience and fans a taster of what is to come next year. We love and miss you, and hope you enjoy the show!”
Theatre Severn are also promoting a special streamed concert and chat event with Scottish singer-songwriter Barbara Dickson titled ‘Ballads & Blether’. Following the singer’s postponed date at the venue to April 2022, this unique event is a stop-gap for Barbara to connect with her fans before taking to the road again in 2022. The concert will be broadcast online on 20 March 2021 at 7pm.
Tickets for online streams of Remembering The Oscars and Barbara Dickson are on sale now and can be found at www.theatresevern.co.uk
