Cilla the Musical


Excursion to Dartford Kent 


Thursday 18th January 2018 


Bill Kenwright and Laurie Mansfield present Bafta Award winning Jeff Pope’s




The Musical


Orchard Theatre, Dartford 2.30pm



This will be our third visit to the Orchard Theatre in Dartford.  The location means that we can start later than usual and I have arranged lunch at the theatre so we won’t be wandering around in the cold. Also, we won’t need a coffee stop but can go straight to Dartford from Hythe.  I have front stalls seats on hold. There will be a choice of menu nearer the date.


Cilla The Musical, is the spectacular and heart-warming musical adaptation of the critically acclaimed hit ITV television series by Bafta-Award winner Jeff Pope [The Moorside, Philomena, From the Cradle to the Grave, Mrs Biggs and the acclaimed Little Boy Blue which had ITV audiences glued to their screens]. It tells the extraordinary story of the ordinary girl from Liverpool whose teenage dreams of stardom lead to her becoming one of Britain’s best loved entertainers of all time.


The musical score is the ultimate soundtrack to the 60’s including Cilla’s greatest hits Anyone Who Had A Heart, Alfie and Something Tells Me, Twist and Shout by the Beatles, California Dreamin’ by the Mamas and the Papas’ and many more.


Kara Lily Hayworth plays Cilla. Following weeks of open auditions at venues up and down the country, Kara fought off thousands of hopefuls to be named as the girl who will step into the Legend’s coveted shoes in the first ever musical about the star’s life. Executive Producer and Cilla’s son, Robert Willis, said of Kara ‘I knew she was the one my mum would have wanted!’
