She’s joined by Debra Stephenson. The comedian, actress and singer, Stephenson is best known for her work on The Impressions Show. She has also had several major roles in Coronation Street and Bad Girls.

Son of a Preacher man has a cult following as the 1960s Soho joint is back and better than ever. The performance revolves around the old hangout where kids would go and dance the night away. Dreamers, the Soho joint and its legendary owner are at the forefront of the show.
The Preacher man’s legacy of helping kids with broken hearts has been passed down from generation to generation. He is long gone, but three strangers migrate to the old standing ground of the Soho joint. The memories remain, the stories are stilled told, and the myths lead the strangers to the Preacher Man’s son that channels the spirit of his father.
The Preacher Man’s spirit has a few last words of advice for the lovesick that he helped so often when he was alive.
The musical will make its limited run one to remember. Dusty Springfield’s greatest hits will be on complete display, including the iconic and fitting “Son of a Preacher Man.” Touching, funny and sweet, the musical will have the audience singing and crying.
