Show Notes

We're kicking off the week with an extra helping of In The Frame with Richard Winsor who is starring as Tony in the West End production of Saturday Night Fever.

Richard previously played this role on tour across the UK and internationally ahead of bringing the show to the Peacock Theatre in London.

Featuring the Bee Gees’ greatest hits, Saturday Night Fever tells the story of Tony Manero and his reckless road to dancing success. The role was originated by John Travolta in the 1977 film.

Richard started his career as a principal dancer for Matthew Bourne, starring in his productions of Spitfire, The Nutcracker, Play Without Words, Edward Scissorhands, The Car Man, Dorian Gray and Swan Lake. These shows have taken Richard around the world and to some of the most prestigious theatres.

Richard then ventured in television, playing Father Francis in Hollyoaks and Caleb in BBC1's Casualty for over 100 episodes.

His credits also include Swan Lake 3D (Universal), Streetdance 3D (BBC), Frankenstein (Royal & Derngate), The Anastasia File (Theatre Royal Windsor) and most recently he reunited with Matthew Bourne for The Midnight Bell on tour.

Saturday Night Fever runs at the Peacock Theatre until 26th March 2022.
