Ray Rackham’s extraordinary biographical musical about the life of iconic movie star and chanteuse Judy Garland comes to the Arts Theatre for a limited season.

The highly anticipated production sees Judy back in town following a critically acclaimed London debut under its original title, Through The Mill.

Since her first tentative steps on the stage as a young girl, Judy has become an enduring icon to millions of fans of all generations around the world. Playwright/Director Ray Rackham crafts a poignant and ultimately uplifting story portraying the star as a survivor in a man’s world. Using three ages of Judy, he shows that her life was more than heartbreak and self-destruction.

The stories of Young Judy (an innocent girl filled with hope and excitement as she heads toward her life-changing performance in The Wizard of Oz), Palace Theatre Judy (a woman at the height of her performing powers in the midst of a passionate romance with Sidney Luft) and CBS Judy (an older and possibly wiser woman) demonstrate that no matter how hard we look for love in all the wrong places, the answer is ultimately inside ourselves.

The cast includes Helen Sheals (Last Tango In Halifax, Downton Abbey) as CBS Judy, Belinda Wollaston (Mamma Mia, Titanic) as Palace Judy and Lucy Penrose as Young Judy. The memorable score which is brought to life by a live band, and is a wonderful combination of Garland standards interlinked with some of her lesser known numbers and includes The Trolley Song, The Man That Got Away and, of course, Over The Rainbow.
