Take the strain out of the Nine to Five with the music of Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers this weekend.

Enjoy the songs of the Queen and King of country music at the Mercury with a special tribute night of songs and stagecraft.

This long running popular stage show brings together Dolly’s beloved glamour and personality with Kenny’s charisma and energy, with hit after hit including Jolene, Ruby, 9 To 5, Lucille, Here You Come Again, plus the smash hit Islands In The Stream.

Producer Michael Taylor says: “The star of the show is a master of stage craft. Dolly’s unmistakable phrasing is closely reproduced, bringing Miss Parton’s distinctive vocals and loveable personality to life, while Kenny Rogers’ own solo show has been seen from Orkney to the Isle of Wight, Dubai to St Lucia and all points in between.

Highlights of his faithfully authentic depiction of the king of country are renditions of The Gambler, Lucille and Coward of the County.

It runs at the Colchester theatre on Friday at 7.30pm with tickets priced £27 to £12, available from the box office on 01206 573948 or on-line at mercurytheatre.co.uk
