Lynn’s own Luke Field-Wright is “coming home” when he appears in The Judy Garland Story at the Corn Exchange.
This song and dance spectacular celebrating the classic songs of Judy Garland is being staged on Tuesday and Wednesday, nightly at 7.30pm.
Luke is one of The Boyfriends, named after Judy’s original dancers of the same name, and one of the UK’s best known choreographers, Arlene Phillips, is the creative director for the show.
In Lynn, Luke used to perform and has since taught at Footlights Dance Studio, now known as Studio 19.
He trained at Performers College, Essex and since leaving four years ago, Luke has worked in television, music videos, film and on international tours.
He has danced with artists such as Take That, Kylie Minogue, One Direction, Annie Lennox, Bette Midler, Coldplay, Rihanna, Olly Murs and JLS.
Luke’s previous credits include Take That’s Progress tour, London Olympics and Paralympics closing ceremonies, X Factor UK, BRIT Awards and the Royal Variety Performance.
Earlier this year, Luke workshopped the new dance show Seasons of Love at the Theatre Royal Dury Lane and he also appears in the 2015 feature film of Cinderella.
This is Luke’s first musical theatre tour and he is very much looking forward to being a part of the show.
In the show, special guest star Miss Lorna Luft, Judy Garland’s daughter, heads an all-star West End cast including 2006 X-Factor runner up Ray Quinn.
Judy’s stage and screen career including never before seen film highlights and interviews, are featured together with irresistible classic hit songs from some of Judy’s hugely popular films such as A Star is Born, Meet Me in St Louis, Easter Parade and The Wizard of Oz.
A remarkable musical journey through a dazzling songbook, including Over the Rainbow, The Man That Got Away, Easter Parade, Zing! Went The Strings of my Heart, Get Happy, The Trolley Song and Rock-a-bye Your Baby (with a Dixie Melody).
Tickets for the show are £25, £24 concs, groups one in 10 free; call the box office on 01553 764864.
