Saturday Night Fever Tour 2022
It’s time to put on your Boogie Shoes as the Saturday Night Fever UK Tour 2022 returns with all the great Bee Gees hits and enough heat to ignite an inferno. Saturday Night Fever Tour is now concluded. Full tour schedule below.
Saturday Night Fever tells the story of Tony Manero and his reckless road to dancing success. The musical features the Bee Gees’ greatest hits including Stayin’ Alive, How Deep Is Your Love, Night Fever, Tragedy and More Than a Woman, with special permission for this production to use added Bee Gees songs including Too Much Heaven and Words.
The ‘70s classic Paramount/RSO movie based on the New York Magazine Article Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night written by Nik Cohn in 1976 was an instant hit when it was released in cinemas. The album remains the best-selling movie soundtrack of all time.
Whilst paying homage to the movie, this musical revival of promises more music and hot new choreography. The new production also specially features onstage actor-musicians in the roles of the Bee Gees, singing the hit soundtrack alongside a talented cast.
Casting for the Saturday Night Fever Tour has been announced with Richard Winsor (Edward Scissorhands) leading the cast in the role of Tony Manero, joined by Olivia Fines as his dancing partner Stephanie. Jake Byrom, Oliver Thomson and James Hudson will be playing and singing the Bee Gees’ soundtrack.
The cast is completed by Kevin O’Dwyer (Bobby C), James Brice (Gus), Paul French (Double J), Michael Cortez (Joey), Jasmin Colangelo (Annette), Tosca Fischer (Connie), Lydia Bradd (Linda), Philip Aiden (Frank Senior), Marios Nicolaides (Frank Junior), Melody Jones (Flo Manero), Faizal Jaye (DJ Monty), Celeste Zollino (ensemble), Ashley Luke Lloyd (ensemble), Luca Rapisarda (ensemble), James Wilkinson-Jones (ensemble), Helen Gulston (ensemble) and James Cohen (ensemble).
Bill Kenwright says, “When I first saw the film over forty years ago, like the rest of the world I was not only mesmerised by a terrific small budget movie, but also by the soundtrack. It was that feeling of being carried along by Maurice, Robin and Barry’s searing vocals and melodies that I wanted to feature in my theatre production, and which led to me to include a live band on stage replicating that experience as well as we can.”
The Saturday Night Fever Tour is directed and produced by Bill Kenwright, with choreography by Olivier Award-winning Bill Deamer, design by Gary McCann, lighting by Nick Richings, and sound by Dan Samson. The stage adaptation is by Robert Stigwood in collaboration with Bill Oakes.
