An Oldham Coliseum and New Vic Theatre, Newcastle-under-Lyme Production, Our Gracie. Britain's most popular female entertainer of all time - in her own words.
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.
Writer Philip Goulding is a Coliseum favourite, whose previous work includes Wake up Little Suzie!, Feels Like The First Time and Horse or River. His credits also include, A Fine Bright Day Today and The Road to Nab End, both of which received four star reviews from The Guardian.
This production is part of the Coliseum's season ticket offer - Four plays for just £66.00 or less. Contact the Box Office for more information on 0161 624 2829.
