Celebrate the music of the legendary Cilla Black
Photos by Jamie Dannunzio...

HEADING to St Helen's Theatre Royal, on Saturday, 18 March 2017, will be:- 'Cilla And The Shades Of The 60's.' The show is billed as the ultimate tribute to the legendary Liverpool redhead and a perfect musical stage show for families and pop music fans of all ages. The cast of the show, led by the effervescent Victoria Jones, takes the audience on a musical journey, starting with Cilla Black's discovery at Liverpool's famous Cavern Club and presents some of the great songs by artists who changed the world of popular entertainment in the 1960's including:- Cilla, Dusty, Lulu, the Beatles and more.

Victoria grew up in a musical environment in Liverpool; from a very early age she was a fan of Kylie Minogue and by the time she was 15 she was performing Kylie tracks on stage in a cabaret style act; she even performed on the BBC TV show:- 'The One And Only' which led to her working in a variety of venues including cruise ships, casinos and theatres.

But it was in France that Victoria made the biggest impact, recording songs for Disney and the TV show:- 'Star Academy.' She also toured with the country music band:- 'The Rodeo Girls' and worked as a presenter, dancer and singer in numerous shows in Disneyland Paris. She has since worked alongside comedians and actors in a number of shows including the hilarious:- 'Escorts – The Musical' and she famously unleashed her wild wide in the cult rock theatre show:- 'Vampires Rock.'

In 2014, Victoria began her tribute to the late, great Cilla Black in her 1 woman show:- 'Liverbird.' Victoria not only has Cilla's trademark looks and accent down to a tee she has the voice to match so she was a natural choice for the producers of Cilla and the 'Shades of the 60's' for the new 2017 touring show where she will be joined onstage by Anna Slater, Emily Clarke and Nicola Twardowski, as:- 'The Shades.'  The show celebrates the great song writing partnerships of the time including:- Lennon / McCartney, Bacharach / David, Lamont / Dozier / Holland, and Greenaway / Cook and takes a trip down memory lane reliving some of the most popular aspects of Cilla's stellar career including her own TV show:- 'Cilla' which ran 1966 to 1978 and 'Blind Date' which ran for a record breaking 18 years.

Chantelle Nolan, Theatre Manager said:- "We love a local at The Epstein and we are excited to welcome Liverpool's own Victoria Jones as Cilla Black. We can't wait to watch her perform!"

Victoria Jones added:- "Growing up in Liverpool, I knew Cilla Black as a TV presenter, but then in my teens, I discovered her music and was amazed by her vocal range and her emotional depth; I find her ballads so beautiful and she portrays heartbreak in a truly moving way. When I travel around the country, being a red headed Scouser I always get compared to Cilla... I do feel a connection there; she too was a bold girl from a working class background who just loved to perform."
