'Boogie Nights', a feel good show packed with 1970s hits will be at FTH from October 30 to November 3.

Stepping back in time with their latest production are Falkirk Bohemians.

But forget the Wild West at the turn of last century for ‘Calamity Jane’ or Edwardian London with ‘My Fair Lady’, this talented bunch are only turning back the clock to the 1970s.

The cast will be pulling on their dancing shoes and preparing to dance the night away with their production of the feel-good musical ‘Boogie Nights’.

Packed with disco classics, if this doesn’t have the audience dancing in the aisles, nothing will!

Featuring over 30 classic disco hits, it tells the entertaining story of Roddy, a Jack-the-lad, whose life of “birds, booze and boogie” is about to be turned upside down.

For this is the night that the King, Elvis Presley, died and Roddy (Kevin Chalmers) is busy dreaming of life as a rock star, while girlfriend Debs has other ideas (Katie Gardiner). Through all their tears and laughter can they both find what they are truly searching for – go along and find out as you are entertained in spectacular fashion.

President Jim Allardyce admitted: “This show is a departure from the usual musical comedies presented by the society over the years.

“Featuring music of the 1970s, it is a replay of some of the greatest hits of the time. The superb music, combining with entertaining dialogue and exciting choreography is sure to delight and have many in the audience desperate to boogie down.”

Classic hits include ‘You Sexy Thing’, ‘YMCA’, ‘I Will Survive’, ‘Sugar Baby Love’, ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ and ‘Boogie Wonderland’ to name but a few.

‘Boogie Nights’ will be performed at Falkirk Town Hall from Tuesday, October 30 to Saturday, November 3 with curtain up at 7.30 p.m.

Tickets cost £10 with £8 for concessions from Tuesday to Thursday. These can be obtained from Falkirk Steeple Box Office, call (01324) 506850 or from ticket co-ordinators, call 07900905114 or 07926082555.

So if you feel the urge to do The Bump or The Hustle ... well, blame it on the boogie!
