Theatre Royal Bath have announced a new production of Saturday Night fever, in association with the Robert Stigwood Organisation, opening at the Theatre Royal Bath, Wednesday 12th to Saturday 22nd November, before a UK tour.
With a talented cast of actor-musicians, this spectacular new production of Saturday Night Fever is full of hits from the Bee Gees including the classics Stayin’ Alive, Night Fever, Jive Talking, How Deep is Your Love? and You Should Be Dancing.
The date is 1976 and in New York, Tony Manero, a young man from a tough Brooklyn neighbourhood with a dead-end job and an extraordinary ability to dance, has only one ambition in life – to become the disco king. Every Saturday night, Tony dons his flares and hits the dance floor, creating a stir as he wows the crowds with his phenomenal moves and routines. When he meets Stephanie, who also dreams of a world beyond Brooklyn, and they decide to train together for a dance competition, their lives begin to change forever.
The smash hit 1977 film of Saturday Night Fever starring Oscar-nominee John Travolta inspired the definitive soundtrack by the Bee Gees and popularised disco around the world. The multi Grammy Award-winning music behind the film, combined with its gripping storyline captured the imagination of millions.
Co-producer Robert Stigwood is one of the world’s leading impresarios and entertainment entrepreneurs, whose stage shows have included Hair, Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar, and whose phenomenally successful films have included Grease and Saturday Night Fever.
Andrew Wright won Best Choreographer at the WhatsOnStage Awards 2013. He was nominated for Best Choreographer at the 2012 Olivier Awards and Broadway World 2011 Awards for his choreography of Cameron Mackintosh’s production of Singin’ in the Rain.
Saturday Night Fever appears at the Theatre Royal Bath from Wednesday 12th November to Saturday 22nd November 2014.
