Chester Preps for SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER

Chester Preps for SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER

Disco fever descends on Storyhouse in Chester in three weeks when the smash-hit stage show Saturday Night Fever arrives in the city.

West End star Richard Winsor reprises his role as Tony Manero, stepping into the iconic white suit for the Autumn 2019 tour of Bill Kenwright's reimagined and revitalised production.

Saturday Night Fever comes to Storyhouse from Tuesday 10 September to Saturday 14 September 2019 for eight performances only, which includes three matinees. Tickets are on sale now.

Richard Winsor has performed around the world, starring as the principle dancer with Matthew Bourne for 10 years. He then landed the lead role in the cult dance film StreetDance 3D, and later went on to play Caleb Knight in the BBC flagship medical drama Casualty.

Full casting has now been announced. Richard Winsor is joined by Olivia Fines (Stephanie), Brandon Gale(Double J), Owen Broughton (Gus), Ross Clifton (Joey), and Will Luckett (Bobbie C).

In this newly updated and reimagined musical revival, which launched in August 2018, the cast will also be joined on stage by Danny Knott, Jake Byrom and James Kenneth Haughan in the roles of The Bee Gees, singing the hit soundtrack of all the disco classics.

Completing the cast are Faizal Jay (DJ Monty), Grant Neal (Frank Senior), Melody Jones (Flo Manero), Natasha Firth (Annette), and Phil Mennell (Frank Junior).

The ensemble features Benjamin Harrold, Brett Shiels, Fletcher Dobinson, Grace Swaby, Helen Gulston, Jade Heusen, Robert Anthony, Sophie Sass, and Zoe Heighton.

Saturday Night Fever tells the story of Tony Manero and his reckless yet thrilling road to dancing success. A film role made infamous by actor John Travolta and that instantly recognisable white suit, dance moves and music.

The musical features The Bee Gees' greatest hits including Stayin' Alive, How Deep Is Your Love, Night Fever, Tragedy and More Than a Woman, as well as 1970s favourites Boogie Shoes, Disco Inferno and, for the first time, will feature a group playing The Bee Gees live on stage.

The 1970s classic Paramount/RSO movie is based on the New York Magazine article Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night written by Nik Cohn in 1976, which 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 new stage version promises more drama, more music and hot new choreography.

It is directed and produced by Bill Kenwright, with choreography by Olivier Award winning Bill Deamer, designs byGary McCann, lighting by Nick Richings, and sound by Dan Samson. The stage adaptation is by Robert Stigwood in collaboration with Bill Oakes.

Tickets for Saturday Night Fever are on sale now and range in price from £20.50 to £46.50. Each ticket is subject to a £1.50 booking fee. Group rates are available Tuesday to Thursday.

Storyhouse has a dynamic pricing policy on the majority of shows, ensuring the earlier you book your tickets, guarantees the best seats at the lowest price.
