      The Dolly Parton Story, with Hannah Richards

      Dolly Parton is enjoying quite some 2019. The 8-times Grammy Award winner, singer-songwriter made a show-stealing appearance at this year's Grammys, where she was honoured as the 2019 MusiCares Person of the Year. A revival of her show 9 to 5 has just opened to rave reviews in London's glittering West End and, later this year, an eight episode series entitled Dolly Parton's Heartstrings, based on the stories and inspirations behind Parton’s most beloved songs will premiere on Netflix.

      So, what better time is there to see a show based on the iconic Country music star's life and career?

      That is exactly what Hannah Richards' show The Dolly Parton Story does. This is no “tribute act”, but an affectionate and accurate look at Dolly Parton through good times and bad, performed in a ground-breaking format that takes its audience on an incredible journey through the highs and lows of Dolly's working and personal lives.

      Featuring passionate and heart-felt renditions of Jolene, 9 to 5, Islands In The Stream, Here You Come Again, Coat Of Many Colours, Joshua and many more, The Dolly Parton Story enjoyed sell out shows with standing ovations at Edinburgh Fringe in 2018.

      Hannah sings the songs and tells the story of the “Queen of Country Music”, from her humble beginnings in the Smoky Mountains to her arrival as an international modern-day icon, idolised across generations, by men and women alike.

      Follow Dolly’s story from her childhood poverty, successful marriage, struggles in the music industry and making the cross-over from country to pop - this is a true rag to riches story that will leave you wanting more.

      Dolly Parton has won an astonishing 153 major awards including eight Grammys and 11 County Music Awards, including the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016,

      What a beautiful performance. Dolly’s Music comes alive in a contemporary way” Dominic King, BBC Radio
