FROM Donald Trump to Adele, Billy Holliday to Paloma Faith – TV star Debra Stephenson is getting ready to bring range of comical impersonations to Redditch.
Perhaps best known for her roles in Bad Girls and Coronation Street, Debra is set to take residents on a nostalgic journey though six decades of popular music in her latest show – ‘Night of 100 voices’ – at Redditch Palace Theatre.
According to Debra, the event, which hits the stage on Saturday, April 13, does exactly what it says on the tin.
“The name of the show couldn’t be more accurate,” she said, “Actually I probably do more than a 100 impressions.
“Members of the audience will be transported through the early 60s, right up to the modern day as I impersonate the decades’ most famous singers.”
There will be plenty of fun and laughter along the way as Debra also lampoons today’s most ubiquitous celebrities.
“I’ve impersonated people from a very young age,” said Debra who is currently starring in ITV’s ‘The Imitation Game’, “I started off when I was about 13-years-old at a social club near me.
“It was my first gig and I was introduced on to the stage by Les Dennis.
“As I was growing up I dipped in and out of it but my parents always supported throughout.”
And it’s a good thing too as Debra went on to take part in the Royal Variety Performance last year and also recently finished appearing in BBC One’s ‘Doctors’.
When asked about why she wanted to perform at the Palace Theatre, Debra said: “I’ve been here before and it was fantastic.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better audience or venue and the Palace staff were so lovely and welcoming.
“I always maintained I would come back to Redditch and here I am.”
