Saturday Night Fever

Saturday Night Fever will begin a tour of the UK this month at New Wimbledon Theatre, and will star former Matthew Bourne dancer, Richard Winsor.

The tour will open at New Wimbledon Theatre on 30th August before performing across the UK until March 2019, where it will conclude its run at Newcastle Theatre Royal.

Richard Winsor, highly acclaimed for his dance, stage and screen work, is set to play Tony Manero, the role which rocketed John Travolta to screen stardom.

Winsor was previously a principle dancer with Matthew Bourne for ten years, and has starred around the world, leading Bourne’s production of Swan Lake, as well as Dorian Gray, Edward Scissorhands, The Car Man and Play Without Words

He landed the lead role in cult dance movie StreetDance 3D and went on to play Caleb Knight in BBC drama Casualty.

The Saturday Night Fever story

Saturday Night Fever centres around Tony Manero, and his reckless, yet thrilling road to dancing success. The musical features the Bee Gees’ hits Stayin’ Alive, How Deep Is Your Love, Night Fever, Tragedy and More Than a Woman, as well as 70s favourites Boogie Shoes, Disco Inferno and, for the first time, will feature a group playing the Bee Gees live on stage.

Whilst paying homage to the movie, this new stage version promises more drama, music and choreography. It is directed and produced by Bill Kenwright, with choreography by Olivier Bill Deamer. The stage adaptation is by Robert Stigwood in collaboration with Bill Oakes.
