A spectacular and heart-warming musical adaptation of the acclaimed ITV mini-series about Cilla Black, by BAFTA award winner Jeff Pope (Philomena, Little Boy Blue).
The story follows the extraordinary life of the ordinary teenage girl from Liverpool, Priscilla White, and her rocky, yet incredible, rise to fame.
The musical score is the ultimate soundtrack to the 60’s including Cilla’s greatest hits Anyone Who Had a Heart, Alfie and Something Tells Me, Twist and Shout by The Beatles, California Dreamin’ by The Mamas and The Papas and more.
Kara Lily Hayworth plays Cilla. Kara fought off thousands in nationwide open auditions to be named as the girl to play Cilla. Executive Producer and Cilla’s son, Robert Willis, said of Kara: ‘I knew she was the one my mum would have wanted!’.
