Gracie Fields Play at Oldham and Newcastle Under Lyme
Oldham Coliseum Theatre and New Vic Theatre, Newcastle-under-Lyme are proud to announce that they have secured – for a limited season only – the exclusive UK rights to presents a brand new production, Our Gracie.
Gracie Fields’ vibrant personality and rich, warm singing style took her from above her grandmother’s Rochdale chip shop to international fame. Her musical recordings have sold in their millions and she became one of the highest paid female movie stars in the world. So great is her appeal that her war-time work boosting morale saw Hitler declare her an enemy of the Third Reich.
Back in the UK to promote her newly published autobiography, Sing As We Go, Rochdale’s finest export comes to the Coliseum with a very special music hall spectacular, joined once again on stage by some of the finest theatrical talent currently available.
The production stars Sue Devaney as Gracie and also appearing in the cast will be BMHS member Ben Stock.
Our Gracie will be staged at Oldham’s Coliseum Theatre from 4th – 26th March. The box office number is 0161 624 2829. Further information can be found at the theatre’s website: http://www.coliseum.org.uk/plays/our-gracie/
