THE OSMONDS, GARETH GATES, LOUISA LYTTON, ANDY ABRAHAM, CHICO and SHANE RICHIE JUNIOR will take to the stage in 2013 as BOOGIE NIGHTS – THE 70’S MUSICAL IN CONCERT heads towards the Milton Keynes Theatre and the Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage.
Boogie Nights was the West End’s original jukebox musical, conceived by Jon Conway and Shane Richie in 1997, and follows the hilarious and heart-warming story of Roddy O’Neil. Boogie Nights returns in 2013 as a remixed concert version of the ultimate party show!
THE OSMONDS will return from the USA as special guest stars, performing not just their own hits such as Crazy Horses and Love Me For A Reason, but also a range of classic hits. Jimmy Osmond first appeared in the award-winning Boogie Nights in 2004 and now for the first time ever he and his brothers will appear in a musical together. They are really looking forward to doing a little something different than their usual concert appearances.
GARETH GATES will play heartthrob Dean, recently in West End classics such as Les Misérables and Legally Blonde, will be covering If You Leave Me Now, Disco Inferno and performing a feature with The Osmonds including a cover of Donny’s Puppy Love.
Debs will be played by LOUISA LYTTON who played the Ruby in EastEnders, PC Beth Green in The Bill, and was a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing. I Will Survive and Don’t Go Breaking My Heart will mark Louisa’s musical debut.
The X Factor finalists ANDY ABRAHAM, playing tough guy soul singer Spencer and CHICO – who was also a finalist on Dancing On Ice 2012 – playing Terry bringing his energetic dance moves to such hits as Le Freak.
The all star line up is completed by a theatrical first when SHANE RICHIE JUNIOR takes over the role of Roddy, as created by his father, the original seventies bad boy.
Boogie Nights – the 70’s Musical in Concert features all your favourites from the original show including Y.M.C.A. and Happy Days, We Are Family and Boogie Wonderland as well as favourites from Gareth & The Osmonds
