Dame Patricia Routledge

28 September 2017 - 28 September 2017
FACING THE MUSIC - A LIFE IN MUSICAL THEATRE, with Dame Patricia Routledge in conversation with Edward Seckerson at St James Concert & Assembly Hall Tickets are available via www.guernseytickets.gg or by calling 01481 711361. Dame Patricia Routledge has delighted audiences with her colourful characters such as Hyacinth Bucket in Keeping Up Appearances, Hetty Wainthropp in Hetty Wainthropp Investigates, the gossip Kitty in Victoria Wood As Seen on TV and in Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads. Over a long career she has been in many films, television series and stage plays. It is still one of the best-kept secrets in show business that Dame Patricia trained not only as an actress but also as a singer and had considerable experience and success in musical theatre. Her many awards include a Tony for her Broadway performance in Darling of the Day and an Olivier Award for her performance in Leonard Bernstein’s Candide. Her one-woman show Come for the Ride toured the UK in 1988, and in 1992 she played Nettie Fowler in the highly acclaimed production of Carousel at the National Theatre. In 1998, she was honoured with the Gold Badge of Merit by the Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors. In this fascinating encounter with the writer and broadcaster Edward Seckerson, she recalls this very special part of her career with access to some rare and treasured recordings. On his long-running BBC Radio 3 show Stage and Screen, writer, broadcaster and podcaster Edward Seckerson interviewed many of the biggest names in the business – among them Julie Andrews, Angela Lansbury, Liza Minnelli, Stephen Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber. This promises to be a very entertaining evening with this much-loved artist and performer; a wonderful opportunity to be up close and personal with a true legend of the acting profession.
