Enjoy an Exclusive interview with Francesca & co-star Ellie Ann Lowe & Producer Duncan Sibbald:
DUSTY THE SHOW follows the path of Dusty’s career through the eyes of Nancy Jones, a childhood friend & confidante.
This show has great heart and portrays Dusty as a vocal genius & true Star who is ultimately shrouded in insecurity, paranoia and unhappiness driven by ego, pressure, alcohol and drugs.
You get an insight into her true character & fight for human rights, through the controversy of her cancelled South Africa appearance.
Here’s Alex with Ellie & Francesca at Dusty:
We get to enjoy a Live band recreating the sounds of Dusty to digitally re-mastered vocals from the lady herself.
Unlike previous shows, the really Dusty drives the show – not an imitator.
DUSTY has the newest 3D technology which brings Ms. Springfield back to life on the stage. Hugely impressive.
The ‘live’ duet moments in the show are terrifically moving between Dusty & the cast.
Some of the lighting, staging & dance numbers are exciting, exhilarating and hugely moving.
Dusty & her sensational music is absolutely the Star of this 2015 celebration of one of best voices in British history!
This show has an energetic cast Starring Ellie Ann Lowe as Mary O’Brien / Dusty. Francesca Jackson does a masterful job setting the scene for Dusty’s life.
With all of Dusty’s hits including ‘I close my eyes and count to ten’, ‘Wishin and hoping’, ‘I only want to be with you’, ‘Goin Back’ & my personal favourite ‘All I See Is You’.
Ellie graduated in 2014 and has since appeared in Saturday Night Fever & Love Story.
On TV you may have seen Ellie on Pride & Prejudice: Having a Ball for the BBC.
