the new musical for anyone who had a heart

BILL KENWRIGHT AND LAURIE MANSFIELD PRESENT 

BAFTA AWARD WINNING JEFF POPE'S

CILLA - THE MUSICAL is the new spectacular and heart-warming musical adaptation of the critically acclaimed hit ITV television series by Bafta Award winner, Jeff Pope. It tells the extraordinary story of the teenage girl from Liverpool whose teenage dreams of stardom lead to her becoming one of Britain’s best-loved entertainers of all time.

It’s an introduction by a young John Lennon to music mogul Brian Epstein that changes Pricilla White’s life forever. By the age of just 25 she would be known as singer and TV Star Cilla Black, Number One selling artist and at the fore-front of the Brit-Pop music scene.

The musical score is the ultimate soundtrack to the 60’s including Cilla’s greatest hits Anyone Who Had a Heart, Alfie and Something Tells Me, Twist and Shout by the Beatles, California Dreamin by The Mamas and The Papas’ and many more.

DIRECTED BY BILL KENWRIGHT AND BOB TOMSON | EXECUTIVE PRODUCER ROBERT WILLIS
