Saturday Night Fever 40th Anniversary Tour


The greatest dancefloor musical of all time, SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER, will tour Tauranga November 2017.

Today’s announcement coincides with the 40th anniversary of the release of the film starring John Travolta — spawning a decade of disco, fuelled by Bee Gees hits including Stayin Alive, Disco Inferno, More than a Woman, You Should Be Dancing and Jive Talkin.

SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER is the iconic coming-of-age story of young Tony Manero who learns the value of life in 1970s Brooklyn. By day he is a humble paint store clerk but at night he turns into the polyester-clad king of the local discotheque. He uses the dance floor as an escape from the reality of his dead-end job, clashes with his unsupportive and squabbling parents, racial tensions in the local community, and his association with a gang of dead-beat friends.

This contemporary retelling of the classic story captures the energy, passion and life-changing moments that have thrilled movie audiences since 1977. Now, a new generation of talented actors, singers and dancers meets a new generation of theatre-goers to explore the soaring sounds and pulsating rhythms of this coming-of-age disco fantasy.

Combining some of the most groundbreaking choreography ever with the best-selling motion picture soundtrack of all time, SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER will be staged in 24 arenas and theatres around New Zealand as the ultimate end of year party event.

The Sound of Music

The hills are alive with THE SOUND OF MUSIC

One of the world’s best-loved musicals, THE SOUND OF MUSIC, is coming to Tauranga October.

From the producer of the recent touring stage shows Grease, HMS Pinafore, Menopause the Musical and South Pacific, THE SOUND OF MUSIC will be performed in 20 cities throughout New Zealand.

Tickets go on sale 3rd March.

This legendary Rodgers and Hammerstein musical features an unforgettable score that includes some of the most famous songs ever performed on the musical stage including “My Favorite Things”, “Edelweiss”, “Do-Re-Mi”, “Sixteen Going on Seventeen”, “The Lonely Goatherd”, “Climb Ev’ry Mountain”, and the title song “The Sound of Music”.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC tells the uplifting true story of Maria, the fun-loving governess who changes the lives of the widowed Captain von Trapp and his seven children by re-introducing them to music, culminating in the family’s escape across the mountains from Austria.

The musical originally premiered on Broadway in 1959 to record-breaking advance ticket sales, where it won eight Tony Awards – including “Best Musical”. The show opened in London in 1961 and became the longest-running American musical of its generation. The 1965 Hollywood film, which starred Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, won five Oscars, including “Best Picture”, and quickly became the highest-grossing film in history. Even today, THE SOUND OF MUSIC remains the most successful movie musical in history.

Since the turn of the 21st century, the enduring magic of THE SOUND OF MUSIC has lead to major productions around the world, giving testament to its title as “The World’s Most Popular Musical”.
