Saturday Night Fever
From the 6th to the 10th of January 2015, Saturday Night Fever comes to The Mayflower Theatre in Southampton. Based on the smash hit film featuring songs by the Bee Gees, the production is based in the 1970's the prime time of disco!
Brooklyn teen Tony Manero lives for Saturday nights at the local club, where he's king of the disco, thanks to his stylish moves on the dance floor. But outside of the club, things aren’t all fun and games. At home, Tony fights with his father all the time and has to compete with his family's idealistic view of his older brother who is a priest. To make matters worse he’s stuck in a dead-end job at a paint store. However, things begin to change when he meets the beautiful Stephanie at the disco and starts training with her for the club's dance competition. Stephanie dreams of a world beyond little old Brooklyn, and her plans to move to the big city will change Tony's life forever.
The original performance premiered in the West End on 5th May 1998 at the London Palladium and has since travelled the world from America, to Europe and even Asia. The production cost in the region of £4 million and choreographed by the award winning Arlene Phillips. It was also co-producer Robert Stigwood who is one of the world’s leading performance organisers and entertainment entrepreneurs whose films have included the phenomenally successful film Grease.
