There’s no such thing as too much Jodie Prenger, and she heads back over to Liverpool next month in the lead of a new national tour of Calamity Jane.
The tour follows on from a sell out run at the Watermill Newbury theatre, where they claim it was such a success it could have run all year.
The show stars Prenger, Tom Lister (Emmerdale’s Carl King) as Wild Bill Hickok, Alex Hammond as Danny and Phoebe Street as Katie Brown.
Calamity Jane can outrun and outshoot any man in Deadwood. Hard, boastful and desperate to impress, she travels to Chicago to recruit a star, Adelaide Adams, for the Deadwood Stage. But things don’t go too smoothly for Calamity, as everyone in town favours the new girl and she struggles to keep her jealousy and pride in check. It takes her long-standing enemy Wild Bill Hickok to make her see sense, and realise her Secret Love…
Calamity Jane has an Oscar-nominated score that includes The Black Hills of Dakota, The Deadwood Stage (Whip-Crack-Away), Just Blew in from the Windy City and the award-winning song Secret Love.
Catch it at the Empire from May 5 to 9.
