The Congress Theatre is set for a great night on Thursday, February 21, when Boogie Nights comes to town for one night only.

Boogie Nights is a British musical, based upon the pop music of the 1970s, written by Jon Conway with Shane Richie and Terry Morrison.

The 2013 production stars Jimmy Osmond, Jay Osmond, Merrill Osmond and Gareth Gates.

The plot is about two lovers called Debs and Roddy. Roddy has a dream to be a rock star. They have been together for five years, as have their best friends Terry and Trish.

There is a fancy dress dance contest at their local disco ‘Boogie Nights’, and Roddy promises he will go with Debs.

Debs then reveals to Trish that she is pregnant with Roddy’s baby.

The hilarious and heartwarming story of Roddy O’Neil, set in a provincial British town in the height of the disco seventies, the decade that fashion forgot, became a massive hit show that ran five amazing UK tours after it’s London success, before then travelling to South Africa, New Zealand and America, where it is now a fixture on several cruise ships.

This remixed concert version sees the original characters in a packed hit-fest that promises 70 songs from the 70’s, that allows video images on a giant back drop to enhance an amazing array of live music and all star cast.
