Saturday Night Fever at Storyhouse, Chester - Preview

The summer holidays are well and truly over and after enjoying 6 weeks with both my husband and children, I would be lying if I said I wasn't missing them today. However, every cloud has a silver lining and whilst I am a little sad about waving goodbye to the summer sunshine, I am incredibly excited about Autumn and some of the events that are lined up for the North West over the coming months.

You may have seen on previous blog posts that Storyhouse in Chester is one of my favourite theatres and I feel so fortunate to have this fantastic arts facility just minutes away from our home. The upcoming Autumn schedule is absolutely jam-packed full of some incredible shows and what better way to start the season than with Bill Kenwright's reimagined and revitalised stage version of cult film Saturday Night Fever.

Disco fever will be descending on the Storyhouse from Tuesday 10th September to Saturday 14th September when this smash hit show arrives in the city and tickets are on sale now.

Saturday Night Fever tells the story of Tony Manero and his reckless yet thrilling road to dancing success. It is directed and produced by Bill Kenwright, with choreography by Olivier Award winning Bill Deamer, designs by Gary McCann, lighting by Nick Richings, and sound by Dan Samson. The stage adaptation is by Robert Stigwood in collaboration with Bill Oakes.

West End star Richard Winsor reprises his role as Tony Manero, stepping into the iconic white suit for the Autumn 2019 tour. He 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.

Richard Winsor will be 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.

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 1970's favourites Boogie Shoes, Disco Inferno and, for the first time, will feature a group playing the Bee Gees live.
