Dancing up a storm

Theatres across the city may be touting their festive shows — but the Theatre Royal is sidestepping panto farce in favour of disco fever.

A 20-strong cast have been dancing up a storm in Saturday Night Fever — and the fun continues until January 3, providing just the distraction when you reach Christmas overload.

The Bee Gees musical is packed full of dancefloor fillers like Stayin’ Alive, Night Fever, Jive Talking, How Deep is Your Love? and You Should Be Dancing.

For those unfamiliar with the now iconic film (a game-changing role for John Travolta), the scene is set in 1976 New York, and Tony Manero, has one ambition in life: to leave the mean streets of Brooklyn behind and become the disco king.

Every Saturday night, Tony dons his flares and hits the floor, wowing the crowds with his moves — and when he meets Stephanie and sets out to win a dance competition, both their lives begin to change.

Whether it’s a family affair or a break from the festive flurry, a trip to see Saturday Night Fever could be just the ticket — it’s Christmas, after all, and you really should be dancing.

The show runs until Jan 3 — times vary. For time and ticket info, call 08448717647 or visit www.atgtickets.com/glasgow.
