New UK Tour Of SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER Announced, From Nov 2014

Theatre Royal Bath is delighted to announce a brand new production of SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER, one of the most loved dance stories of all time, staged by Theatre Royal Bath Productions in association with the Robert Stigwood Organisation this autumn. Opening at the Theatre Royal Bath, Wednesday 12th to Saturday 22nd November, this iconic musical then embarks on a nationwide UK tour.

Featuring a large and hugely talented cast of actor-musicians, this spectacular new production 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. EverySaturday 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.

Ryan McBryde directs. His most recent credits include The Ruling Class for the English Theatre Frankfurt; Angus, Thongs And Even More Snogging at the West Yorkshire Playhouse; The Crucible at the Alte Schauspiel, Stuttgart and The Who's Tommy, European Tour. His production of Hamlet! The Musical at the Royal and Derngate, Northampton and Richmond Theatre, won the WhatsOnStage Theatregoers' Choice Award. Ryan is associate director for Perfect Pitch Musicals.

The production is choreographed by Andrew Wright, who 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 Chichester Festival Theatre's production of Singin' in the Rain.

In 2011, Theatre Royal Bath Productions (TRBP) presented the Tony Award-winning musical comedy Avenue Q on its first UK tour, in collaboration with Cameron Mackintosh. After opening in Bath in February 2011, the tour played venues nationwide. This spring TRBP is presenting two plays in the West End: Noël Coward's Relative Values at the Harold Pinter Theatre until 21st June, following a successful sell-out run at Theatre Royal Bath 2013 as part of its summer season 2013; and Julian Mitchell's Another Country, transferring from Chichester's Minerva Theatre to the Trafalgar Studios 26th March - 21st June.

Theatre Royal Bath has also just announced plans for its much anticipated 2014 Summer Season, which comprises four productions and stars Clare Higgins, Tim Pigott-Smith, Alison Steadman and Felicity Kendal. Beginning on 18th June with Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, the season continues with Kafka's Dick by Alan Bennett, followed by Thérèse Raquin by Emile Zola, and concludes on 6th September with Noel Coward's Hay Fever.
