Bad Girls legend – and occasional OutNewsGlobal columnist) – Nicole Faraday is set join Amelle Berrabah (Sugababes) and Wendi Harriott (The Voice) in Soul Sisters, an exhilarating new soul musical that will take you on a journey of success, survival and sisterhood…and we can’t wait to see it!
Join Monique, Dionne and Rachael – otherwise known as 80’s chart-toppers “The Fabulettes” during a visit to a classic holiday camp Soul Weekender, as they seek to reclaim that elusive closeness they once shared as starry-eyed teens. They face the real, honest truths and express themselves in the only way they know how – through the very music that brought them together and took them to the top of the charts. Can they pull off a performance of a lifetime? Do they still have what it takes? Is their bond strong enough to overcome their flaws? Can they forgive and forget and remain Soul Sisters?
Inspired by the greatest soul music of all time, Soul Sisters is the funky feelgood original musical from writer David Kent, directed by the acclaimed multi-award-winning comedian, respected writer and director Angie Le Mar. Le Mar the first black female stand-up on the British Comedy circuit with a career spanning three decades said:
“I am truly honoured to be directing this amazing musical. I grew up listening to Soul Music, it was not only the soundtrack to my life but to many people’s lives. David Kent the writer of Soul Sisters has given us a great relatable story of sisterhood, friendship, and so much more. This production will hit you on so many levels from beginning to end! If you love music, love soul and the memories, you’ll love Soul Sisters.”
Speaking exclusively to OutNewsGlobal, Nicole Faraday said, “I am absolutely delighted to be touring the country in this brand new musical alongside my fab “Soul Sisters” Amelle Berrabah and Wendi Harriott. I play LGBTQ character Rachael, and we get to sing some fantastic brand new songs – plus the show is a rollercoaster emotionally, and hopefully our audience will empathise with the scenarios we play out, and be thoroughly entertained too!”
Former Sugagbabe Amelle Berrabah added, “When I read the script, I knew I wanted to be in this amazing show instantly. I understand the dynamics of being in a girl band, the unspoken bond, the friendship, the respect for one another and knowing what the other is feeling with just a simple look. The character I play is Dionne, a flirtatious, confident woman. Although she is quite far away from who I am as a person, it’s a very exciting role to play.”
The Soul Sisters UK tour starts on 25 March and takes in more than 40 dates. More here.
