Dusty, the new musical based on the life of Dusty Springfield, will have its world premiere at Theatre Royal Bath next summer (June 23-July 7).
The show will then tour during July, with dates at The Lyceum in Sheffield, Newcastle Theatre Royal, and The Lowry in Salford.
It will star Katherine Kingsley (Piaf, Singin’ in the Rain) and further casting will be announced in due course.
The show features many of Dusty’s hits from the Sixties, including I Only Want to Be with You, Son of a Preacher Man and You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me.
Her career started in the late 1950s and she became known around the world for her soulful voice, with hits spanning four decades.
