  • About the Show

    Get, ready to hit that floor and burn, baby, burn... in ‘Disco Inferno’

    It’s the summer of 1976. Outside, the weather is as hot as the fashion and passion are on the dance floor and Jack is about to celebrate a 21st birthday he’ll never forget. Working late in a London Dance Club, ‘Disco Inferno’, Jack meets Lady Marmalade – the devil’s right hand lady. Dreaming of becoming successful, he makes a Faustian pact with her, trading his soul to fulfil his wildest fantasies. Sound like an ideal bargain? Think again. He becomes an instant and international success. However, success proves hollow. Jack has fame and fortune but is losing his girlfriend, Jane. If only he could turn back time and make one more trade, trading all he has for something far more important... love.

    This highly acclaimed musical combines a hilarious script, fantastic characters and a score of hits from an unforgettable era of glitter, flares and platform shoes. ‘Disco Inferno’ is a high energy musical guaranteed to warm hearts, get feet tapping and audiences leaving the auditorium with a daft grin of pleasure and the fondest memories of a sensational era. ‘A night to remember’

    "I wanted to let you know how much our students and school community enjoyed working with and watching your show! The energy and accessibility of the music for both the cast and audience made for an exhilerating night of entertainment.Students involved in the production as performers had a fantastic time working with this show and I am confident the experience has given many of my student's incredible memories they will carry with them beyond their high school lives.

    Thank you for creating and providing this show, I would recommend it to any high school teacher wishing to challenge their students to perform at a professional standard in a high energy show that has a great soundtrack! I was singing Disco tunes in my dreams all term!!" Vanessa Carnevale, Head of Drama, Lynfield College.
