London, UK | Summer 2022
Did you enroll in the class of 1963 at Kellerman’s Mountain House alongside Johnny and Baby for a summer like no other?
Audiences were transported to the tranquil mountaintop resort in the Catskills where they enjoyed a summer full of cha-cha classes, classic competitions and a cocktail or two in the sun…
The staff quarters
It was a hot summer at Kellerman’s! Things got steamy at the Staff Quarters as audiences were invited to join the staff for a forbidden after-dark dance.
Robbie finally got his comeuppance in a public scuffle with Johnny, and Baby looked for someone to help her carry her watermelon. Did you help her?
The Kellerman’s Cup
Six families attended, but only one could win the Kellerman’s cup! Attendees competed in sports and dances to see their family triumph in a nail-biting finale.
Dancing was on the menu every night! From Vince’s dance classes to taking part in a thrilling flashmob to even getting a one-to-one lesson from Johnny.
What an amazing experience, absolutely loved our evening!!
Fabulous night, thank you! Staff quarters was the high.
It was fantastic! It really felt like we were at Kellerman’s!
I can’t cope, I wanna do it all again!
It was an amazing experience, I felt like I was truly on holiday!!
I had the time of my life.
The screaming, the laughter, the constant dancing – I’d never seen an audience reaction like it..
One big party, and everyone’s invited..
It’s a festival built around a movie.
