Disco Inferno for children's cancer charity.

A SOLIHULL theatre group will be donning spangly platform boots and flares for a special fundraising event next month.

St Augustine's Musical Theatre Company will take to the stage with "Disco Inferno", donating half of the seats for its opening night to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The company is seeking more men to join in their fun-filled production - all that is required is to be aged "15-30's, with a good sense of rhythm!" Set in the summer of 1976, Disco Inferno is a classic Faustian comedy with a score featuring 70s hits like "I Will Survive" and "Boogie Wonderland".

Its opening night on Monday November 16 will be a gala fundraising event for the charity.

Teenage Cancer Trust supports young cancer patients in hospital.

It funds specialist units in NHS hospitals and, alongside an existing unit at University Hospital Birmingham, is spending pounds 3 million building two new units in the West Midlands. Disco Inferno will run from November 16-21 at Solihull Arts Complex.

Tickets from 0121 704 6962 or, for group bookings, Betty Keyte on 0121 705 2789. Men wishing to join St Augustine's can contact Veronica Walsh on 0121 705 3914.
