Jodie does Deadwood on stage
Jodie Prenger stars as whip-cracking, sharp-shooting Calamity Jane in a new production of the classic musical coming to the Palace Theatre in Manchester next week.
The Oscar nominated score includes The Black Hills of Dakota, The Deadwood Stage (Whip-Crack-Away), Just Blew in from the Windy City and the award-winning Secret Love.
Prenger rose to fame by winning the role of Nancy in Cameron Mackintosh’s West End production of Oliver! through the BBC series I’d Do Anything. Co-star Tom Lister is probably best known to TV audiences for his role as Carl King in ITV’s Emmerdale, a part he played for nine years.
Calamity Jane travels to Chicago to recruit a star, Adelaide Adams, for the Deadwood Stage. But things don’t go smoothly and it takes her long-standing enemy Wild Bill Hickok to make her see sense.
