A comedy play with music set in a tap dancing class with a group of women and one man who come together each week to try to learn the steps and routines. From different backgrounds, they each have their reasons for joining the class. They all have their troubles, and poor Mavis, their ever-patient teacher does her best to enthuse the group, accompanied by the acerbic pianist Mrs. Fraser.
Their transformation is unbelievable and Mavis enters them for a grand charity performance! Will they be ready to deliver the performance of a lifetime?

Stepping Out is a warm and funny play, hilarious at times. A much needed feel good evening out!

The casting can be found to the right hand side of this page.

Liane has been the Company's choreographer for many years and also returned to the stage for this production. Gavin and Gemma starred in our November 2013 production of
