SHERIDAN Smith will revisit her award-winning TV role as Cilla Black, but this time she will be on stage.

She is playing the title role in Cilla The Musical as it goes on tour this autumn following a successful first tour of the country.

Sheridan wowed fans and critics alike with her portrayal of the nation’s favourite singer and TV personality in Jeff Pope’s BAFTA award-winning ITV series.

Her acclaimed portrayal won her both a 2015 National TV Award and TV Choice Award and saw her nominated for a BAFTA (2015) and a second international EMMY Award (2015).

Hailed ‘The Greatest Theatre Star of her Generation’ by the Evening Standard, and with nearly two decades of television, film and theatre success, Sheridan Smith is widely considered Britain’s favourite actress.

Cilla The Musical is described as a spectacular and heart-warming musical adaptation of the TV series.

The story follows the extraordinary life of an ordinary teenage girl from Liverpool, Priscilla White, and her rocky, yet incredible, rise to fame.

By the age of just 25 she was recognised as international singing star Cilla Black. By 30 she had become Britain’s favourite television entertainer, headlining series of Blind Date and Surprise Surprise.

The musical score features the ultimate soundtrack to the 1960s, including Cilla’s greatest hits Anyone Who Had a Heart, Alfie and Something Tells Me, alongside a backdrop of the legendary ‘Liverpool Sound’.

The Grand Theatre in Leeds will host Cilla The Musical with Sheridan Smith this year from November 9-21.
