It has been confirmed that Diana Vickers will star in the 2017 tour of Son of A Preacher Man which will open at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley on the 4th September.
Featuring the music of Dusty Springfield and choreographed and directed by Craig Revel-Horwood, Son of A Preacher Man is a new musical about three broken hearts, a Soho hang out and the man who could only ever help them.
X-Factor finalist Diana Vickers will be creating the role of Kat for the 2017/2018 tour. Her previous stage credits include The Duck House opposite Ben Miller (West End, Vaudeville Theatre); Hatched ‘n’ Dispatched (Park Theatre, London) and Janet in “The Rocky Horror Show.
Welcome to the Preacher Man, the swinging 1960s Soho joint where the kids danced the night away to the latest crazes and dared to dream of love, while the legendary owner, the Preacher Man himself, dispensed advice to cure the loneliest of hearts. Only, that was a long time ago and all that remains are the memories, the stories and the myths. Until now, that is, when three random strangers, generations apart but all in need of help with their hopeless love lives, are inexplicably drawn to the site of the original venue. The Preacher Man is long gone, but his son, with help from the wonderful Cappuccino Sisters, might just find it in himself to channel the spirit of the Preacher Man and once more give these three lovesick strangers the look of love.
As well as featuring the hits of Dusty Springfield such as ‘The Look of love’ and ‘I Only Want to Be With You’, the production features a book by Warner Brown, set and costume design by Morgan Large, and lighting by Richard G Jones.
The tour dates announced so far include: Wimbledon, Woking, Glasgow, Liverpool, Brighton, Hull, Oxford and Manchester.
