UPDATED: Jodie Prenger to star in 2016 UK tour of Tell Me on a Sunday

Jodie Prenger is set to star in a UK tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s one-woman musical Tell Me on a Sunday in 2016.

The tour opens at the Watermill Theatre on 28th January and is currently booking until 10th April at the Brighton Theatre Royal. Check out full tour dates below.

Directed by Paul Foster, the new 2016 production will include an intimate post-show chat with Prenger about life, love and playing the role of Emma.

The updated version of the show includes the number 'I Still Believe in Love' as well as 'Take That Look Off Your Face' and 'Tell Me on a Sunday'. 

Tell Me On A Sunday charts the romantic misadventures of a young English girl in New York in the heady days of the 1980’s. Brimming with optimism, she seeks success and love. But as she weaves her way through the maze of the city and her own anxieties, frustrations and heartaches she begins to wonder whether she's been looking for love in all the wrong places.

Marti Webb, Sarah Brightman, Denise Van Outen, Patsy Palmer, Claire Sweeney, Kerry Ellis and Louise Dearman have all starred in previous productions. 

Prenger entered Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'I'd Do Anything' and went on to win the role of Nancy in Cameron Mackintosh’s West End revival of Oliver at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane. She received a West End Frame Award nomination for her performance in the National Theatre’s production of One Man, Two Guvnors (West End/UK Tour) and played The Lady of the Lake in Spamalot's UK Tour. 

Prenger, who is a regular presenter on BBC Radio 2, is currently starring as the title character in the UK tour of Calamity Jane.
