Dolly is back in town! 

The Rags to Rhinestones Story is a smash hit tribute concert production that continues to sell out theatres across the UK. The show is widely accepted as the foremost tribute show to Dolly Parton, and is performed by the Award Winning Miss Julia Martin, the UK’s No1 Dolly Parton impersonator. The show has been described by theatre audiences as totally authentic in every way, and not only captures Dolly’s incredible stage presence, mannerisms, charisma and unique comedy one-liners, but also delivers a spectacular evening of entertainment, that no true Dolly fan will want to miss.

This foot stomping, clap-along, interactive show is guaranteed to enthral the audience from start to finish. It combines stunning sequined Dolly costumes; classic hit songs, and Dolly’s epic Glastonbury concert performance, into a spectacular sound, light and visual theatre production. With vocals direct from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Tennessee, ‘The Rags to Rhinestones Story’ not only brings-to-life the inspirational story of Dolly Rebecca Parton, but also takes the audience on a musical journey through the outstanding singing and film career of this Country Hall of Fame Legend. With meticulous attention to detail, Julia weaves her magic and delivers a show that makes you feel that Dolly herself is actually in the theatre.

In 2014 with a record audience of 200,000 and a BBC audience of 2.6 million, Dolly Parton became the Queen of Glastonbury, and a whole new generation of Dolly fans was born. In celebration to this performance, part two of this show, will be dedicated to Glastonbury revisited, where Julia, wearing a white rhinestone studded trouser suit, struts across every inch of the stage, quite simply redefining the word crowdpleaser, with a performance of scintillating music, entertainment and banter.

The show is also raising money for the Autism Unseen Tall Ships Challenge, where 6 groups of autistic youngsters accompanied by team buddies will crew and race around the UK in a 70 foot Challenger racing yacht. This is one of Autism Unseen’s most ambitious challenges to date, and the first time that a challenge of this nature has ever been set. By the time the autistic challenge participants have completed their voyage they will be much more self assured, confident and ready to meet head-on the daily challenges of being autistic.
