NICOLA CAVENDISH - SHIRLEY VALENTINE
November 6, 7 & 8, 2018
Nicola Cavendish brings her Dora and Jessie Award winning portrayal of Shirley Valentine to Lakeside Little Theatre.
For over 600 performances, Nicola travelled with Shirley Valentine across Canada, after opening at the Vancouver Playhouse in 1990.
Nicola finally decided to ‘retire’ Shirley in 2012. However, to benefit Lakeside Little Theatre’s renovation project, The Third Act, Nicola brings Shirley Valentine – a role that she has made her own – out of retirement for three performances.
Written by the incomparable British dramatist/ screenwriter Willy Russell, this heartwarming, inspiring story brings to life an ignored and neglected Liverpool housewife who makes a break from her mediocre existence with a life-changing trip to a Greek island.
A hilarious and uplifting comedy that proves it's never too late to live the life of your dreams.
