Dancer Richard Winsor is set to play Tony Manero in a revival of Saturday Night Fever which will tour the UK this autumn.
This new musical production sees Winsor take on his first leading role in a major musical and it is his first stage appearance since Casualty.
More than 40 years since its famous UK cinema release, Saturday Night Fever has been re-imagined and revitalised.
Saturday Night Fever tells the story of Tony Manero and his reckless, 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 favourites Boogie Shoes and Disco Inferno.
And, for the first time, the show will feature a group playing the musical numbers live on stage.
The 1977 movie, starring John Travolta, was an instant hit when it was released and the album remains the best-selling movie soundtrack of all time.
While 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.
Winsor was principal dancer with Matthew Bourne for ten years, starring in the choreographer’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.
He appeared in the show for over three years until his dramatic exit last year.
