Kentish Express Ashford & District - What's On - - NEWS -

Forty years since its UK cin­ema re­lease, Satur­day Night Fever has been re­vi­talised into a mu­sic and dance spec­tac­u­lar on stage.

Its tour will be at the Or­chard The­atre, Dart­ford, un­til Satur­day, Jan­uary 12. The Bill Ken­wright pro­duc­tion stars ac­claimed dancer Richard Win­sor as Tony Manero, the role made fa­mous by swag­ger­ing John Tra­volta in the 1978 film, which was a world­wide hit.

This is his first ma­jor mu­si­cal lead for Richard, who will be joined by Kate Parr (Fol­lies) in the role of Stephanie, Owen Broughton (Gus), Michael Cortez (Joey), Raphael Pace (Bob­bie C) and Jared Thomp­son (Dou­ble Jay).

The cast will be joined for the first time, by a group play­ing the Bee Gees with Ed Han­doll (Barry Gibb), Alas­tair Hill (Mau­rice Gibb) and Matt Faull (Robin Gibb) singing the hit sound­track of the disco clas­sics. Satur­day Night Fever tells the story of Tony’s reck­less, yet thrilling, road to danc­ing suc­cess, and fea­tures the Bee Gees’ hits in­clud­ing Stayin’ Alive, How Deep Is Your Love, Night Fever, Tragedy and More Than a Woman - the film sound­track re­mains the best-sell­ing movie sound­track of all time. While pay­ing homage to the orig­i­nal movie, the new show prom­ises more drama, mu­sic and some hot new chore­og­ra­phy.
