Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s Classic musical “Tell me on a Sunday” at Theatre Severn

Jamie Wilson and Gavin Kalin Productions are delighted to present the Watermill Theatre production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s classic musical Tell me on a Sunday starring Jodie Prenger, at Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn on Thursday 26th and Friday 27th May.

Tell me on a Sunday charts the romantic misadventures of a young English girl in New York in the heady days of the 1980’s. Brimming with optimism, she seeks success and love. But as she weaves her way through the maze of the city and her own anxieties, frustrations and heartaches she begins to wonder whether she's been looking for love in all the wrong places. This iconic musical, with a wonderful original score, features the chart-topping Take That Look Off Your Face and the title track Tell Me on A Sunday.

Jodie Prenger is probably best known for winning the role of ‘Nancy’ in Cameron Mackintosh’s West End production of “Oliver!” through the BBC television series “I’d Do Anything”. During her run in the show at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane she received both critical and public acclaim for her portrayal of the role. Most recently Jodie wowed audiences playing the title role in the national tour of the musical “Calamity Jane”. She has also starred in the National Theatre’s hit production of “One Man, Two Guvnors” both in the West End and on tour and as ‘Lady of the Lake’ in “Spamalot”. Jodie is also a regular presenter on BBC Radio 2.

Originally conceived for television, Tell me on a Sunday has been performed by many legendary musical theatre stars including Marti Webb and Sarah Brightman. This new production for 2016 will include an intimate chat with Jodie about life, love and playing the role of Emma.

Andrew Lloyd Webber is the composer of some of the world’s best known musicals including Cats, Evita, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Phantom of the Opera and Sunset Boulevard. He is currently working on a stage version of the movie School of Rock which will begin previews on Broadway in November this year. He is the recipient of many awards including 7 Tonys, 7 Oliviers, a Golden Globe, an Oscar, 2 International Emmys and the Richard Rodgers Award for Excellence in Musical Theatre. DON BLACK is an Oscar winning lyrist for Born Free and has penned numerous James Bond theme tunes, and chart hits including Michael Jackson’s Ben and Lulu’s ‘To Sir With Love.’

Venue spokesman Pip Bayley said ‘We are delighted to have Jodie joining us for this iconic musical. We have a great programme of Musical Theatre this year, but to have a star of Jodie’s calibre is definitely a highlight. There will even be a chance for Shropshire audiences to ask Jodie questions during the second half,  and I can’t wait to see what our audiences ask her!’

Tell me on a Sunday will be at Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn on Thursday 26th amd Friday 27th May. Tickets are available at the Theatre Severn website or by contacting the Box Office on 01743 281 281.
