The Drifters Girl UK Tour 2023-2024

The Drifters Girl announces UK tour for 2023 / 2024

The Drifters Girl has announced its first UK tour, set for 2023 and 2024.

The new musical, which is currently playing at the Garrick Theatre but closes next month on 15 October 2022, tells the remarkable story of one of the world’s greatest vocal groups and the woman who made them.

The tour kicks off at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton on 12 September 2023, and then visits the Theatre Royal, Norwich; Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield; Alhambra Theatre, Bradford; Opera House, Manchester; Milton Keynes Theatre, Milton Keynes; Curve Theatre, Leicester; Cliffs Pavilion, Southend; Theatre Royal, Newcastle; New Victoria Theatre, Woking; Orchard Theatre, Dartford; Bristol Hippodrome, Bristol. Further dates for 2024 are set to be announced, along with the cast of the touring production.

The show tells the remarkable story of The Drifters, one of the world’s greatest vocal groups, and the truth about the woman who made them. Faye Treadwell is the legendary manager of The Drifters who fought for three decades alongside her husband (George Treadwell) to turn Atlantic Records’ hottest vocal group into a global phenomenon.

From the highs of hit records and sell-out tours to the lows of legal battles and personal tragedy, The Drifters Girl charts the trailblazing efforts of the world’s first African American female music manager and how she refused to ever give up on the group she loved. Thirty years and hundreds of hit songs later, there is no doubt that Faye Treadwell was and always will be, The Drifters Girl.

The Drifters Girl soundtrack features classics including Save The Last Dance For Me, Under The Boardwalk, Kissin In The Back Row Of The Movies, Stand By Me, Come On Over To My Place, Saturday Night At The Movies and many more.

The show has a book by Ed Curtis, and is based on an idea by Tina Treadwell, co-created by Beverley Knight, Adam J Bernard, Tarinn Callender, Matt Henry and Tosh Wanogho-Maud. The production is directed by Jonathan Church, with set design is by Anthony Ward, choreography by Karen Bruce, costume design by Fay Fullerton, orchestrations and musical supervision by Chris Egan, lighting design by Ben Cracknell, sound design by Tom Marshall and video design by Andrzej Goulding. Casting is by Stuart Burt.

The Drifters Girl is produced by Michael Harrison and David Ian.
