Dolly and Kenny - the story
Celebrating Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers is brand-new stage show Islands in the Stream.
Stacked with million-selling country music hits like Jolene, Ruby, 9 to 5, Lucille, Here You Come Again, The Gambler, Coward of the County, Love is Like a Butterfly and Lady, theatregoers are invited to enjoy the awesome vocals and gentle humour of Dolly and Kenny’s legendary live shows.
Dolly Parton is played by Mandy Winters, who won Entertainer of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year in the celebrated Nebraska Country Music Festival.
A self-confessed Dolly Parton fanatic, Mandy’s calling as an international performer is firmly in her genes – her father was Ronnie Winters, Columbia Records’ famed “yodelling cowboy” who enjoyed many chart hits in the late Fifties and early Sixties. Her mother was one of this country’s leading sopranos. Here in the UK she has performed with the likes of Lonnie Donegan, Des O’Connor and Vince Hill.
The part of Kenny Rogers is played by John Warwick.
The West End performer is a talented operatic tenor who has appeared in many hit stage spectaculars. Highlights of John’s faithfully authentic depiction of the king of country are his renditions of The Gambler, Lucille and Coward of the County.
