Soul Sisters musical at New Theatre Royal, Lincoln, stars Sugababe’s Amelle Berrabah

More news, no ads


New all-female musical Soul Sisters is heading to Lincoln’s New Theatre Royal with a star cast, including Sugababe’s Amelle Berrabah.

Described as a journey of success, survival, and sisterhood, it is at the venue on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Soul Sisters is the story of Dionne, Monique, and Rachael, who have known each other for 30 years, yet nothing can prepare them for the revelations that unfold during a reunion at a Soul Weekender.


They face the real, honest truth and express themselves in the only way they know how ­— through the very music that brought them together.

Leading the cast of this new musical is ex-Sugababe Amelle Berrabah, who during her time in the girl band line-up scored international chart success with Push The Button and About You Now.

Since leaving the band in 2011, Amelle has been working on solo material and concentrating on theatre projects.


“When I read the script, I knew I wanted to be in this amazing show instantly,” she said.

“I understand the dynamics of being in a girl band, the unspoken bond, the friendship, the respect for one another and knowing what the other is feeling with just a simple look.

“The character I will be playing is called Dionne, a flirtatious, confident woman. Although the character is quite far away from who I am as a person, it is a very exciting role to play, and I honestly can’t wait to bring her to life.”


Completing the cast is Bad Girls and Emmerdale star Nicole Faraday, who has previously toured in the UK as Eva Cassidy in the critically acclaimed Eva Cassidy Story.

She will be joined by Wendi Harriott,who came to the nation’s attention with her powerhouse vocals on ITV’s The Voice; and who has worked alongside some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Rod Stewart and Jennifer Hudson.
