Shandelle Cooke’s Divas Through the Decades
18 April 2017, 10:30 AM
Shandelle’s style and repertoire are influenced by the classic jazz, soul and Motown artists of the 1950’s and 1960’s, including artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Sade, Joss Stone and Amy Winehouse.
Her versatility allows her to perform a broad range of styles. For the Potato Shed, Shandelle pays homage to the world’s leading female stars.
Various dates from 21 April 2017 to 22 April 2017
Shirley Valentine by the award winning Willy Russell and starring Mandi Lodge (Menopause The Musical and Always…Patsy Cline) is a wonderfully entertaining monologue by a 42-year-old Liverpool mother whose self-esteem has been battered by school, marriage and life in general.When her best friend wins a Greek vacation for two, Shirley grasps the chance to head for the sun, to re-find herself, follow her dreams and to get a new lease on life.
With much humour, warmth, sympathy, human insight and a great deal of empathy for his female protagonist, Willy Russell brilliantly shows Shirley breaking out of the mold in which she was cast by society.
“This play is a modern classic and its theme of achieving your full potential remains universal and very relevant today.” Director, Denny Lawrence.
