The Dolly Parton Story is a two hour journey through the sensational career of one of country music’s most successful ladies. Dolly Parton’s career has spanned over 50 years and her most celebrated material features in this show, from her early country classics such as ‘Coat of Many Colours’ and ‘Joshua’, through to the later smash hits such as ‘Jolene’, ‘Islands in the Stream’, ‘I Will Always Love You’ and ‘9 to 5’.

Andrea Pattison has been a professional singer for many years and in that time, many people have commented on her similarity in sound and style to Dolly Parton. As a life long fan of Dolly’s, Andrea always took this as a huge compliment, but it was only recently that she decided to use that aspect of her talent to reach a wider audience.

Now in its fifth year this great show has built up a huge following around the UK and will be venturing further in the near future. With an all live four piece band providing the sound and an array of amazing, rhinestone encrusted replica costumes, this is a real treat for any Dolly Parton fan.

As well as celebrating the life and music of Dolly Parton, Andrea will be incorporating her own experiences and music into the show. Andrea’s first album of original songs ‘Stormy’s Daughter’ was recently released and one of the songs will feature in the stage show. Dolly’s influence on Andrea’s writing and singing is obvious throughout the album, but especially evident on the Bluegrass track ‘Nobody’s Baby’ – a heartfelt recollection of her less than idyllic early life in Sunderland.

New for Autumn 2015 is the option of having a special guest on the show, Kenny Rogers. Covering favourites such as 'Ruby', 'The Gambler' and 'Lucile'.

“The musicians did a great job and the audience didn't want the show to end. We had three encores before Andrea left to tremendous applause” - Dave Walker, Cross Country Magazine

“to call this a tribute show would be an injustice, it is much more than that, shut your eyes and it was Dolly!” - Iain Gordon, Glasgow Pavilion Theatre Manager
