Blonde, a world première musical production, will mark the 50th anniversary of the death of film legend and glamour icon Marilyn Monroe and will play at Derby Theatre from May 17-19.
Presented by Theatre Arts, in association with Uncontained Arts, the cast of Blonde consists of second year Theatre Arts students and the play is directed by Yvonne Hurt and assistant director Darren Daly.
The book and lyrics are by Paul Hurt while music and lyrics are by Adam Howell, one of the original founders of Uncontained Arts.
Blonde is based on real events from Marilyn’s life, which particularly focus on her various relationships and struggles with being accepted as a real woman, thus giving audiences a deeper insight into another, very different, side of the iconic movie legend the world knew, and loved, as the ultimate ‘blonde bombshell’. Blonde also features cameo appearances from other significant people who played a huge part in her life: legendary playwright Arthur Miller, the unforgettable crooner Frank Sinatra and fellow actress and close friend, Jane Russell, to name just a few. Tickets are £8. For more information and to book tickets call the box office on 01332 593939.
