The Grand Blackpool Theatre Brings You Son Of A Preacher Man
The swinging 60s come to The Grand Theatre Blackpool from Tuesday 20th – Saturday 24th March!
Three broken hearts, one Soho hang-out, and the only man who could ever help them… Welcome to the Preacher Man, the 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.
Featuring the greatest hits of Dusty Springfield, including "The Look Of Love", "I Only Want To Be With You", "Spooky" and of course, the classic "Son Of A Preacher Man", this sparklingly funny and sweetly touching new musical play by internationally-renowned writer Warner Brown will have you laughing, crying and singing your heart out to some of the greatest songs ever written.
Starring recording artist Michelle Gayle (Wolfblood, EastEnders, Beauty and the Beast - West End) Alice Barlow (Hollyoaks, Drifters) and directed and choreographed by Strictly Come Dancing’s Craig Revel Horwood!
