Catch a lit­tle Night Fever

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ONSHOW -

THE ICONIC mu­si­cal Satur­day Night Fever is set to visit the Wy­combe Swan in a brand new pro­duc­tion of one of the most loved dance sto­ries of all time.

Fea­tur­ing a 20-strong cast of hugely tal­ented ac­tor-mu­si­cians, this new show will run from Tues­day, Jan­uary 20 to Satur­day, Jan­uary 24, pro­duced by The­atre Royal Bath Pro­duc­tions in as­so­ci­a­tion with the Robert Stigwood Or­gan­i­sa­tion.

This new stag­ing of Satur­day Night Fever is packed with leg­endary 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.

The role of Tony Manero is played by Danny Bayne, who made his West End de­but as Danny Zuko in the mu­si­cal Grease at London’s Pic­cadilly The­atre after win­ning ITV’s Grease is the Word. He starred in the West End for two years and per­formed the role on tour.

He re­turns to the role of Tony Manero after tour­ing the US in Satur­day Night Fever.

A tal­ented dancer, he has achieved the sta­tus of Bri­tish Cham­pion in Freestyle, Hip Hop, Latin Amer­i­can and Rock ‘n’ Roll.

Naomi Slights plays the role of Stephanie.

Satur­day Night Fever runs from Tues­day, Jan­uary 20 – Satur­day, Jan­uary 24.
