West End Favourite To Showcase New Album In Norwich


One of Britain’s most highly-respected theatrical stars who has wowed the West End and starred in a host of hit TV shows is set to share songs from her debut album in a live concert in Norwich.

The Theatre Royal is one of a handful of venues to host a tour featuring Sheridan Smith, who will take to the stage on April 22 at 7.30pm.

Tickets go on sale this Friday (November 3) at 9.30am with a proportion held off sale for Friends to purchase when the new brochure goes on sale in a few weeks.

Sheridan will perform her own interpretation of a number of classic songs including well-known tracks from musicals like Dreamgirls and La La Land.

Also on the set-list will be her version of the Cilla Black classic, Anyone Who Had A Heart, as well as the Fanny Brice song My Man.

And there will be some pop hits too including Crazy and the Robert Palmer classic Addicted To Love.

This UK tour, which will also include a date at the Royal Albert Hall in London, will be her debut solo tour.

And it is the latest chapter in an illustrious career which has seen her take on lead roles in a host of hit shows including Little Shop Of Horrors, Legally Blonde and most recently Funny Girl.

She has also won critical acclaim for a number of TV roles including the lead role in the biopic of Cilla Black, and Karen Bushby in the BBC’s gritty retelling of the search for missing schoolgirl Shannon Matthews entitled The Moorside.

John Bultitude, of Norwich Theatre Royal, said: “We are very excited to welcome Sheridan Smith to the city for this exciting musical showcase. She has an enviable ability to make so many key characters her own and this will be a fantastic chance to enjoy her incredible vocal abilities.”
