The ‘devilishly’ good 70s musical Disco Inferno will be performed at Derby Theatre from September 10-15 and tickets are now on sale.

Starring Dani Harmer, Sam Attwater and Javine Hylton, the musical gives you the chance to dust off your platforms and flares and come and celebrate the sensational 70s decade.

Disco Inferno is a spellbinding story and devilish musical to captivate audiences, packed with over 30 classic seventies floor-fillers from the combined talents of the likes of Donna Summer, Stevie Wonder, Gloria Gaynor, Jackson 5, Elton John, Cliff Richard, Earth Wind & Fire. Hits include Hot Stuff, Signed Sealed Delivered, Relight My Fire, I Will Survive, Blame It On The Boogie and many, many more…

A musical celebration of the perpetual spirit of the decade that brought us flared trousers, platform shoes and more glitter than can be found in Liberace’s wardrobe. An hilarious script, fantastic characters and an electrifying score combine to create a high energy musical guaranteed to warm hearts, have feet tapping and audiences sitting on the edge of their seats.

Dani Harmer is one of the biggest stars of children’s television in BBC history. Winner of the 2010 Children’s BAFTA for Best Drama, Dani was also nominated for her performance as Tracey Beaker in its various incarnations, with the programme attracting another nomination in the Children’s Drama Category at the 2011 RTS Awards.

Sam Attwater was the winner of the sixth series of ITV’s Dancing On Ice in March 2011. He trained at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts. He landed his first role playing Ricky in Hollyoaks in 2009. In January 2010, he joined the cast of Eastenders and its online spin-off Eastenders E20 playing the character Leon Small.

Javine Hylton is an international recording artist, actress and TV personality. She has established herself as one of the UK’s most prolific R&B pop stars.

Disco Inferno is set in London in 1976; the hottest summer ever recorded and tells the story of an ambitious and talented hopeful, Jack, and his ‘burning’ desire to make it in the music business. Working late in a London nightclub, Jack encounters Lucretia McEvil, a femme fatale. Dreaming of becoming successful, Jack strikes a Faustian-style pact with her, trading his soul to fulfil his wildest fantasies.

Sounds like an ideal bargain? Think again! Jack soon becomes an international success… a sensation but success proves hollow. He has the fame and fortune he’s always dreamed of but is losing something far more important – his devoted girlfriend, Jane.

Tickets are £12-£27, concessions available. For more information and to book tickets call the box office on 01332 59 39 39.
