About Oh! What A Night

The unashamedly escapist, high-energy, feel-good show, Oh! What a Night, combining comedy, romance and stunningly choreographed versions of everybody's favourite disco hits, comes to the Sunderland Empire in February and makes the perfect party night out!

The setting is New York in the mid 1970s and the action centres on the city's hippest disco - The Inferno, a domain of the funkiest, coolest DJ of them all - Brutus T. Firefly (Kid Creole). It's the only place to be and to be seen. Everyone's life revolves around a Saturday night, the one night to put on your best threads, meet your friends, dance to the coolest music and hopefully fall in love so why not join the fun!

This is the one night to put on your best threads, meet your friends, dance to the coolest music on the planet, and hopefully fall in love! Assuming of course that you can actually get into the Inferno. To do that means surviving the rigid but totally arbitrary door policy of the Inferno greeter and head doorman the outrageous Mr. Stretch Mulligan.

The club is facing a financial crisis. The club's manager, Jack has run up some large gambling debts, and owes money to some very dubious characters. As luck would have it, a major Hollywood studio is casting a big budget disco movie!!

To get the right atmosphere, the movie company want to use a club just like the Inferno and to use 'real' people, not actors.

They send their top casting director Roxie Rochelle to check out the club and to audition the dancers!

So put on your platforms, zip up your cat-suit and boogie on down for a great night out.
