Desperate To Be Doris

LipService in association with the Library Theatre presents

Desperate To Be Doris, LipService’s hilarious show all about a wannabe Doris Day singer, which has been nominated for Best Special Entertainment at the forthcoming Manchester Evening News Theatre Awards, returns by popular demand to the Library Theatre in May 2010 after its sell-out run at the theatre earlier this year.
Bolton-born Darren Southworth, direct from the West End production of Spamalot, plays Dean, by day 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 a production of  Calamity Jane, will he come alive?
Desperate To Be Doris, which features a specially recruited 50-strong choir singing Doris Day classics such as ‘Que Sera Sera’, ‘The Deadwood Stage’, and ‘Secret Love’, wowed the critics when it played at the Library Theatre in September 2009.
“Could this be LipService’s finest inspiration to date? Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps”
