Desperate to be Doris Image


Desperate to be Doris

Desperate to be Doris – a new play with music featuring some of Doris Day’s greatest hits, including Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps, Que Sera Sera, The Deadwood Stage and Secret Love.

This show is produced in association with four venues: York Theatre Royal, Library Theatre, Manchester, New Wolsey, Ipswich and The Brindley in Runcorn. In each town we will recruit local singers to join a community choir to appear in the show. These local singers will meet for rehearsals once a week for a couple of months leading up to the production.

Click here to see our choir in action.

If you would like to be in a choir please e-mail us at

If you are interested in booking the show for your venue and would like to know more, please ring Maggie or Sue on 0161 881 0061 or e-mail us at
