Disco is 'Stayin' Alive' at Miller Auditorium

March 10, 2004

KALAMAZOO--"Saturday Night Fever--The Musical" comes to Miller Auditorium at Western Michigan University for five performances Friday through Sunday, March 12-14. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 and 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Inspired by the phenomenally successful 1977 film and featuring songs from the film's soundtrack by the Bee Gees, "Saturday Night Fever" tells the streetwise New York City story of an ambitious, talented Brooklyn kid with a burning desire to make it big in Manhattan. It is filled with hit songs that helped launch the 1970's disco-dancing craze, including "Stayin' Alive," "Night Fever," "How Deep Is Your Love?," "You Should Be Dancing," "If I Can't Have You," and Jive Talkin'."

The live version of "Saturday Night Fever" was first presented at the famed Palladium in London's West End in 1998. It was followed by a much-heralded Broadway engagement at the Minskoff Theater in New York City from September 1999 through December 2000.

Tickets for "Saturday Night Fever" range from $23 to 47. For tickets, call the Miller Auditorium Ticket Office at (269) 387-2300 or toll free (800) 228-9858, or visit <www.millerauditorium.com>.

"Saturday Night Fever" at Miller Auditorium is by WWMT Channel 3, 103.3 FM WKFR and 107.7 FM WRKR.
