UK Tour of NEW ‘CILLA The Musical’ debuts at Liverpool Empire!

The world premiere of ‘CILLA – The Musical’ took place last night at the Liverpool Empire with audiences giving it a standing ovation!

The new spectacular and heart-warming musical adaptation of the critically acclaimed hit ITV television series by Bafta Award winner, Jeff Pope will run at the Liverpool Empire until September 16th. The show will then embark on an extensive tour across the U.K. (See dates below).

The musical is the final project Cilla gave her approval to before she died in August 2015. It tells the extraordinary story of the teenage girl from Liverpool whose dreams of stardom were realised after an introduction by a young John Lennon to music mogul Brian Epstein changed Pricilla White’s life forever! This chance meeting led to Cilla becoming one of Britain’s best-loved entertainers of all time!

The musical score for the show is the ultimate sing-a-long 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.

The show is notably directed by one of Britain’s most successful West End theatre/film producers, BILL KENWRIGHT & the acclaimed director/writer BOB TOMSON. Cilla’s eldest son, Robert Willis is the Executive Producer.
