The Dolly Parton Story is a two-hour journey through the sensational career of one of country music’s most successful ladies.
Dolly’s career spans more than 50 years and her most celebrated material features in this show, from her early country classics such as Coat of Many Colours and Joshua, through to the later smash hits such as Islands in the Stream, I Will Always Love You, and 9 to 5.
Andrea Pattison, from Sunderland, has been a professional singer for many years and many people have commented on her similarity in sound and style to Dolly. As a life-long fan, Andrea always took this as a huge compliment, then she decided to use that aspect of her talent to reach a wider audience.
Now in its fifth year, this great show has built up a huge following around the UK and with Dolly’s recent appearance at Glastonbury has seen a massive increase in interest. With a live band providing the sound and an array of rhinestone encrusted replica costumes, this is a real treat for any Dolly Parton fan. Andrea’s first album of original songs ‘Stormy’s Daughter’ was recently released and she will be incorporating her own music into the show as well. The Dolly Parton Show is coming to Banbury’s The Mill Arts Centre on Saturday, September 13. Go to www.themillarts centre.co.uk for tickets .
