A Spoonful of Julie - A Tribute to Julie Andrews

A Spoonful of Julie - A Tribute to Julie Andrews

Join Soprano Nicola Mills, singing the songs of the practically perfect Dame Julie Andrews in this memorable tribute ‘A Spoonful of Julie’, full of songs and medleys arranged by Stuart Barham (Sondheim and Lloyd Webber), from your favourite Julie things. Cleverly woven together and telling some Julie stories along the way, Nicola will delight your Julie Andrews senses.

Originally from Oldham, Nicola has worked in opera houses around Europe (Glyndebourne Festival Opera, Dutch National Opera, The Flemish Opera, Opera Monte Carlo), and has also performed in Germany, Austria, France, Canada and most recently New York. She started her own initiative called ‘Opera for the People’ and sings on the streets and at parties and events for ‘the people’ wherever she goes. She wrote her own show ‘A Soprano and a Suitcase’, writes a blog called ‘A Soprano, a Suitcase and a Rucksack’ and is delighted to be coming back to her roots to sing her ‘favourite things’. She has always loved Julie Andrews and is living her dream singing ‘A Spoonful of Julie’.

‘From the moment Nicola and her pianist burst onto the stage with a short compilation of everyone’s favourite tunes, we were then immersed in anything and everything Julie Andrews, from charming anecdotes of Julie’s early life and a musical meander through the films and stage shows, such as ‘The Sound of Music’, ‘Mary Poppins’, ‘Camelot’ and ‘My Fair Lady.

''What Nicola brings is sheer joy, as well as an amazing voice,and there are some great sing along moments too. I personally laughed out loud, and shed a tear. Nicola is the most charming down to earth diva you will ever meet.''

There is no reserved seating for this event, seating is offered on a first come, first served basis. Doors open an hour before the show starts and a bar is available.
