ROS Productions is staging Boogie Nights at Chatham and Clarendon School Theatre in Ramsgate from tonight (May 18).
ROS Productions is a charity and an inclusive community theatre group, based in Ramsgate. It was formed in 1961 and has since brought many light opera and musicals to the community. Members rehearse at a local hall and have recently been putting on shows at Chatham and Clarendon School Theatre.
Boogie Nights is co-written by Shane Ritchie (Eastenders), Jon Conway and Terry Morrison. Terry will be in the audience tomorrow evening.
The story follows Roddy a Jack-the-lad, and his sweetheart Debs who face the ups and downs of teenage love, with a cast of friends who meet up at the local disco. Set in the 1970s its score features iconic pop songs.
Mary-Anne Staddon, of ROS Productions, said: “We have a cast of great singers, and the dance routines are great fun. The cast come from Margate, Broadstairs, Ramsgate, Canterbury and Deal and are passionate about producing a professional show for local audiences to enjoy.
“Our Director/MD has directed several shows for us and our Choreographer has been both cast member and choreographer on the last two shows.”
