Based on the 1977 movie starring John Travolta, this is the story of 19-year-old Tony Manero, a Brooklyn youth whose weekend is spent at the local discotheque, where life lights up on the disco floor. There, Tony luxuriates in the admiration of the crowd and a growing relationship with Stephanie Mangano, and where he can temporarily forget the realities of his life, including a dead-end job in a paint store and his gang of deadbeat friends. The lead role of Tony Manero is played by Euan Doidge and Stephanie Mangano will be Melanie Hawkins. Other main roles will be played by Tim 'Timomatic' Omaji, Stephen Mahy, Angelique Cassimatis, and Ryan Morgan. Joining them will be Boby Fox, Paulini, Natalie Conway and Nana Matapule. Australia’s original disco diva, Marcia Hines, will play the role of The Diva, who performs at Disco Odyssey 2001. Saturday Night Fever is based on the Paramount/RSO movie and the story by Nik Cohn, adapted for the stage by Robert Stigwood and Bill Oakes, while the new version has been arranged and edited by Ryan McBryde. Music and lyrics are by artists including the Bee Gees.
