The Doris Day Story… It’s Magic, Grenoside Community Centre
Following the success of her debut performance as Doris Day in Chapeltown last year, Susan St Nicholas is appearing at Grenoside Community Centre tomorrow afternoon in this nostalgic one-woman tribute to the singer and movie star.
The show blends live musical theatre with cinema and documentary to tell the fascinating story of one of the most adored stars of the 20th century, who celebrated her 90th birthday this year.
Day’s story is told on screen, narrated and illustrated with movie clips, with Sue performing 15 of Doris Day’s hit songs including Sentimental Journey, Dream a Little Dream, Move Over Darling, Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps and, of course, a selection from the Calamity Jane movie.
Susan St Nicholas appeared in many amateur productions and then spent subsequent years as a club entertainer both here and overseas.
More recently in addition to The Doris Day Story and performances as herself, she has created a short concert for care home audiences and premiered Vera Lynn – Truly Yours in June at the Newton Hall after being asked by Chapeltown Forum to appear as part of a war years commemoration.
Light refreshments included in the £10 ticket price will be served at the venue in Main Street from 1pm, followed by the 70-minute show starting at about 2pm.
The show is also on at The Venue, in Manchester Road, Stocksbridge on Wednesday, October 22 at 1.30pm.
To buy tickets for either show, call 0114 245 3140 or 07789 088810 or email email@example.com.
