Debra Stephenson stars in Son of a Preacher Man musical


Debra Stephenson, who played Frankie Baldwin in Coronation Street, will be taking to the stage in the musical Son of a Preacher Man when it goes on tour this year.

Debra will be playing the role of Alison and she's coming to my local theatre, the Sunderland Empire in September.  

Featuring the soulful music of Dusty Springfield, with a book by Warner Brown and directed and choreographed by Craig Revel Horwood, Son of a Preacher Man embarks on a national tour starting at Bromley’s Churchill Theatre from Monday 4 September 2017.

Featuring the greatest hits of Dusty Springfield, including "The Look Of Love", "I Only Want To Be With You", "Spooky" and of course, the classic "Son Of A Preacher Man", this funny and sweetly touching new musical play by internationally renowned writer Warner Brown will have you laughing, crying and singing your heart out to some of the greatest songs ever written.

Directed and choreographed by Strictly Come Dancing’s Craig Revel Horwood, Son of a Preacher Man comes to Sunderland Empire for one week only. You only want to be with us!

Debra Stephenson is known for her long running roles in Coronation Street and Bad Girls, whilst her entertainment credits include The Friday Night Project, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special, Comic Relief Does Fame Academy and Let’s Dance For Sports Relief. As a comedic impressionist she is best known as star of BBC One’s The Impressions Show, with her other credits including BBC Radio 4’s Dead Ringers as well ITV’s Newzoids.

Interestingly, Corrie writer Jonathan Harvey has penned another musical based on the life of Dusty Springfield too. You can read more on that here.
