Oldham Coliseum Theatre’s Spring-Summer 2016 season promises to be joyous, funny and touching.
The season opens with Our Gracie, a new play on Rochdale’s finest export, Gracie Fields, written for the Coliseum and New Vic Theatre by Philip Goulding (A Fine Bright Day Today and The Road To Nab End). Our Gracie will be produced as a music hall-style piece directed by Coliseum Artistic Director Kevin Shaw.
Sue Devaney (Coronation Street, Dinnerladies, Casualty) will star as Gracie Fields as she tells, in her own words and some very famous songs, the real-life Cinderella story of how an ordinary working-class lass became Britain’s greatest all-round female entertainer. Our Gracie opens at the Coliseum on Friday 4 March 2016.
Happily, Seb and I will be working alongside the production team and the Oldham Coliseum during the production of this exciting enterprise.
