Based on both a real-life story and Jeff Pope’s Bafta award-winning ITV drama, Cilla the Musical brings to life the story of Priscilla White, a teenage girl from Liverpool whose dreams turned to reality as she became one of the most loved stars of the 1960s and most popular entertainers of all time.

Black began her career in 1963 and had a career in both music and television which spanned five decades; including shows such as Surprise Surprise and Blind Date. The musical score incorporates both Cilla’s best-loved songs and other well-known hits from the sixties well.

You can expect to hear many of the songs that everyone remembers from the sixties, including ‘Anyone Who Had a Heart’ and ‘You’re My World’, al
