The Cast !

 


Oh! What a Night is a 70's musical which was staged at the Blackpool Opera House in the summer of 1997. It was directed and choreographed by Take That's choreographer Kim Gavin, and starred Kid Creole and John Altman (Nic Cotton, Eastenders).

I was lucky enough to play the romantic lead role of Ric (the barman), and got to sing some great songs like, Easy, Blame it on the Boogie and When I need You. The cast were all completely fabulous and the show was none stop energy and fun from start to finish.

Bernie Nolan from the Nolan Sisters was also in the show, and one of the highlights of the show for me was being in the weird situation of dancing to 'I'm in the mood for dancing', sung by Bernie, not 5ft away from me. You see as a kid I used to watch her on Top of the Pops singing that song when it was a hit! And back then I never thought in my wildest dreams that one day................ Life is to weird sometimes!
