Casualty’s Richard Winsor is to play Tony Manero, the role which famously rocketed John Travolta to screen stardom, in a new stage production of Saturday Night Fever coming to Wales Millennium Centre.
Saturday Night Fever is a reimagined and revitalised music and dance spectacular. It 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 70’s favorites Boogie Shoes, Disco Inferno and for the first time will feature a group playing the Bee Gees live on stage.
Richard Winsor was a principle dancer with Matthew Bourne for ten years, he has starred around the world, leading Bourne’s celebrated 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 was snapped up by the BBC to play Caleb Knight in flagship medical drama Casualty.
Whilst paying homage to the movie, this new stage version promises more drama, more music and hot new choreography.
Saturday Night Fever is at Wales Millennium Centre 27 November 2018 – 1 December 2018
