Desperate To Be Doris

LipService in association with the Library Theatre presents

Tickets are selling fast for Desperate To Be Doris, the latest production from LipService, Manchester’s favourite theatrical spoofsters, between Wednesday 23 September – Saturday 3 October. This terrific and hilarious new show all about a wannabe Doris Day singer stars Bolton-born Darren Southworth, direct from the West End production of Spamalot, who plays Dean. By day, Dean is a buyer at a mail-order nightwear firm; by night, he sings like the great Doris Day. But when his local operatic society, Out of My Range, stages Calamity Jane, will he come alive?
Desperate To Be Doris features a specially recruited 50-strong choir who will regale the audience with Doris Day classics such as ‘Que Sera Sera’, ‘The Deadwood Stage’, and ‘Secret Love’. It is sure to be a riot of songs, laughter, not to mention a few tears!
If you usually attend the Library Theatre on your own, why not join our regular Theatre Solos’ event, for Desperate To Be Doris on Friday 2 October? Join us at Brasserie Gérard at 6pm, performance at 8pm. Advance booking essential; more information from the box office.
