Soul Sister, the brand new musical inspired by the life and times of Ike and Tina Turner, can be seen at the Theatre Royal Nottingham from Monday, June 24, to Saturday, June 29.

Nominated for Best New Musical at the 2013 Olivier Awards, Soul Sister caused a sensation at the West End’s Savoy Theatre with rave reviews and standing ovations!

The show will visit Nottingham’s Theatre Royal from 24-28 June as the first venue in this extended UK tour.

Soul Sister features all the classic Tina Turner hits including What’s Love Got to Do with It, Proud Mary, Private Dancer, River Deep Mountain High and, of course, Simply the Best.

The story follows the highs, lows, passions and heartbreak of Ike and Tina as their careers soared whilst their marriage crumbled, ultimately leading to Tina being catapulted to superstardom and heralded as one of the greatest solo artists of all time.

Full of heart and soul, electrifying choreography, and stunning musical numbers, Soul Sister is sure to have you on your feet, partying the night away.

Tina Turner is arguably one of music’s greatest ever live performance and recording artist ‘divas’, and was named “one of the greatest singers of all time” by Rolling Stone Magazine.

With a career spanning over 50 years, her combined album and single sales total approximately 180 million copies worldwide.

She has won nine Grammy Awards during her career, and gained an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, amongst many other accolades and honours.

On starring in Soul Sister as Tina Turner, Jenny Fitzpatrick said: ‘Tina Turner has been one of the biggest musical influences in my life, probably since the first time I heard her singing River Deep Mountain High when I was a kid.

“So it’s an absolute dream to play her in Soul Sister.’”

Jenny’s West End and regional theatre credits include: Little Shop of Horrors, Our House, The Blues Brothers and Ghost.

Soul Sister was devised and directed by John Miller and Pete Brooks.

It is designed by Laura Hopkins, with choreography by Jason Pennycooke, and musical staging and additional choreography by Carole Todd.

The musical supervisor and arranger is Keith Strachan.

Tickets to see Soul Sister, when it is performed at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal from June 24-29 are available at a cost of £16-£31, plus concessions.

There are a number of performances throughout the week for you to choose from.
