The Rags to Rhinestones Story is a dynamic, high energy one woman production that recently sold-out the Holmfirth Civic Theatre, with a standing ovation from 300 Dolly Fans, and is widely considered to be the UK’s foremost tribute to Dolly Parton. It is performed by the multi-award-winning Julia Martin, and has been delivered to audiences around the world, with fabulous reviews on every occasion.
After performing live on Sky Television Julia was described as “Phenomenal & Outstanding”. The show has been described by audiences as totally authentic in every way, and not only captures Dolly’s incredible stage presence, mannerisms, charisma, and unique comedy one-liners, but also delivers a spectacular evening of entertainment, that no Dolly fan will want to miss.
In a tribute to Dolly’s unparalleled appeal, this show will combine stunning sequined replica costumes, classic hit songs, and a portrayal of Dolly’s epic Glastonbury performance, into a sensational production. Julia struts across every inch of the stage, quite simply redefining the word crowd-pleaser, delivering a performance of foot stomping entertainment and banter, guaranteed to enthral the audience from start to finish.
