ACCLAIMED ACTOR & DANCER
REPRISES HIS MEMORABLE ROLE AS THE ICONIC TONY MANERO
IN BILL KENWRIGHT’S AUTUMN 2019 TOUR OF
SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER
VISITING THE THEATRE ROYAL NOTTINGHAM
FROM 3-7 SEPTEMBER 2019
Ignite The Inferno. Feel The Fever. Like Never Before.
Richard Winsor will be leading the Autumn 2019 tour of Bill Kenwright’s reimagined and revitalized production of Saturday Night Fever, as the iconic Tony Manero.
Winsor has performed around the world, starring as the principle dancer with Matthew Bourne for ten years. He then landed the lead role in the cult dance film, StreetDance 3D and then went on to play Caleb Knight in the BBC flagship medical drama, Casualty.
The production will visit the Theatre Royal Nottingham from Tuesday 3 to Saturday 7 September 2019 as part of a national tour.
Saturday Night Fever tells the story of Tony Manero and his reckless yet thrilling road to dancing success. 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 ‘70s favorites Boogie Shoes, Disco Inferno and for the first time will feature a group playing the Bee Gees live on stage.
The ‘70s 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 by Gary McCaan, lighting by Nick Richings, and sound by Dan Samson. The stage adaptation is by Robert Stigwood in collaboration with Bill Oakes.
