Celebrating the queen and king of country, Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers, new stage show Islands in the Stream is coming to town...
Stacked with million-selling country music hits like Jolene, Ruby, 9 to 5, Lucille, Here You Come Again, The Gambler, Coward of the County, Love is Like a Butterfly and Lady, the show hits Buxton Opera House on Thursday, April 2.
Producer Michael Taylor said: “Bring-the-house-down performances, a superb score and supreme musicianship tell the story of the simple Smoky Mountains farm girl’s rise to country music’s biggest superstar.”
Dolly Parton is played by Mandy Winters, Entertainer of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year in the celebrated Nebraska Country Music Festival.
A self-confessed Dolly Parton fanatic, Mandy’s calling as an international performer is firmly in her genes – her father was Ronnie Winters, Columbia Records’ famed “yodelling cowboy” who enjoyed many chart hits in the late Fifties and early Sixties. Her mother was one of this country’s leading sopranos.
The part of Kenny Rogers is played by John Warwick. The West End performer is a talented operatic tenor who has appeared in many hit stage spectaculars.
Highlights of John’s faithfully authentic depiction of the king of country are his renditions of The Gambler, Lucille and Coward of the County.
