Tommy Steele will narrate The Glenn Miller Story it has been announced.
The music legend will turn storyteller for the show which tells the tale of the world’s most famous big band leader, accompanied by a live 16-piece Glenn Miller orchestra and a full supporting company of singers, dancers and actors.
It’s been seventy years since Glenn Miller vanished over the English Channel as he flew to Paris to entertain the troops during the Second World War. Did he crash? Was he shot down? Will the mystery ever be solved? His music defined an era; his disappearance stunned the world, and now the story of one of the most iconic musical figures of the 20th century will be brought to spectacular life in a brand new production, led by one of our biggest ever stars. It promises to have audiences on their feet jiving, swinging and jitterbugging and taking them back to the big band days of the 1940s.
The Glenn Miller Story is directed and produced by Bill Kenwright It is choreographed by Olivier Award winner Bill Deamer (Evita, Save The Last Dance For Me and Top Hat).
Autumn 2015 tour dates for The Glenn Miller Story are to be announced.
