Synopsis

Do you remember where you were the night Elvis died? Well, tonight's the night. Boogie Nights-The Musical tells the hilarious and heart-warming story of Roddy, a Jack-the-lad, whose life of birds, booze and boogie is about to be turned upside down.

It's the night that the King, Elvis Presley, died and Roddy O'Neill is busy dreaming of life as a rock star! Debs, his girlfriend, has her own thoughts... basically that Roddy's a selfish, arrogant, horrible, unfeeling, rude, heartless pig! But the truth is that Roddy is in love with Debs, and Debs is in love with Roddy, but Debs knows that her Roddy has more than a roving eye! Through all their tears and laughter - can they both find what they are truly searching for?

Packed with all the greatest Disco classics Boogie Nights-The Musical will have the audience up on its feet doing The Bump and The Hustle, and funking along to the grooviest chart topping hits like 'You Sexy Thing',' Y.M.C.A.', 'I Will Survive', 'In The Navy', 'Can You Feel The Force', 'I Love To Love', 'Boogie Wonderland' and many many more!
