A lorra lorra laughs in store at Cilla tribute show next month

The countdown is on with one month to go before a show dedicated to the nation’s favourite redhead comes to the Epstein Theatre.

Celebrating Cilla is a show which will share the musical memories of Liverpool’s first lady of entertainment, the one and only Cilla Black OBE.

The show has been touring the UK and will come to The Epstein Theatre on Hanover Street on Thursday June 2.

Celebrating Cilla recreates the sounds of the sixties and is fronted by the incorrigible Brenda Collins, a highly talented performer from County Durham who will pay tribute to Cilla, a national treasure and one of the UK’s best-loved performers of all time.

Not only is Brenda an amazing Cilla lookalike, but she has a truly zany character and like Cilla, she has a personality which oozes fun and laughter and wins the hearts of everyone she meets.

A superb comedy vocalist, Brenda’s show is punctuated with many Cilla favourites from Anyone Who Had a Heart to Step Inside Love.

Brenda will be accompanied by a trio of wonderfully multi-talented musicians plus Liverpool lad Tony Blaney to add an unmistakable Scouse flavour to the mix.

Spiced with humour, the show features memories of Cilla, Liverpool and Merseyside, and is guaranteed to put a smile on your face, giving you, in Cilla’s own words “a lorra lorra laughs.”

Rebekah Pichilingi, theatre manager, commented: “Cilla Black was a national treasure who put the swing into the sixties.

“Brenda has an uncanny capability of recreating Cilla’s unforgettable voice and pays a fitting tribute to the Liverpool icon who shaped popular music and entertainment.

“We can’t wait to welcome her to The Epstein and are sure the audience will take her to their hearts, just as they did with Cilla.”

So come and celebrate magical memories of Cilla – you may even want to “buy a new hat!”
