Australian and New Zealand community theatres were the first in the world to be given permission to stage this iconic musical. The movie is credited with defining the 1970's, the sound track sold 25,000,000 copies and since it debuted on Broadway the musical adaptation has set pulses racing around the world.
It was described by one reviewer as a "one of a kind miracle in song, dance and simplicity."
The central character is a 19 year old in a job going no-where whose life lights up on the disco floor.
The music by the Bee Gees includes their classic hits Stayin Alive, Night Fever, More than a Woman and How Deep is Your Love.
It has a large cast with terrific ensemble dancing opportunities.
