Strictly Come Dancing couple Janette Manrara and Aljaž Škorjanec have rescheduled dates, including one in Cambridge, for their hotly anticipated 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, including a residency at London’s Peacock Theatre from March 29 to April 3.

The tour will now take to the stage at Cambridge Corn Exchange on Tuesday, April 6, 2021.

All tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled dates.

Pocket rocket Janette Manrara 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!”

Husband Aljaž added: “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 producers and the couple showing their gratitude to these front-line heroes.

Information on how to claim these tickets will be announced very soon once normal services resume.

The professional dancers 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.”
