The Drifters Girl description

Faye Treadwell was a powerhouse, a phenomenon, an extraordinary woman. Thanks to her one of the world's greatest soul bands, The Drifters, enjoyed massive success in the charts and critical acclaim for their wonderful tunes. This is Faye's story, told to the accompaniment of a host of dazzling songs including Stand By Me, Saturday Night at the Movies, Under The Boardwalk, Save The Last Dance For Me, and Kissin in the Back Row of the Movies.

What's the plot of The Drifters Girl?

The Drifters were signed up with Atlantic Records, as one of the most popular vocal groups of the times, but even so the highs they experienced were balanced by lows involved in legal problems and personal tragedies. The Drifters' legendary female manager, Faye Treadwell spent three decades fighting to transform the band she loved and believed in into a global brand.

This gloriously uplifting musical follows Treadwell, the world’s first female African American music manager, revealing how she refused to give up on the band. Thanks to her efforts over more than 30 years we're still enjoying The Drifters' unmistakeable sound. Faye Treadwell will always be The Drifters Girl. And boy, do we have an amazing cast and creative team for you!

Beverly Knight plays Faye Treadwell, and Adam J Bernard, Tarinn Callender, Matt Henry and Tosh Wanogho-Maud play The Drifters. The book is by Ed Curtis and the show is inspired by an idea from Tina Treadwell. It has been co-created by Beverley Knight, Adam J Bernard, Tarinn Callender, Matt Henry and Tosh Wanogho-Maud and the fun is beautifully directed by Jonathan Church.

Set design is by Anthony Ward and choreography by Karen Bruce. Costume design is by Fay Fullerton and the orchestrations and musical supervision by Chris Egan. Lighting design comes from Ben Cracknell and the sound design is by Tom Marshall. Video design comes from Andrzej Goulding and Associate Direction from Tyrone Huntley. The Associate Choreographer is Myles Brown. Casting is by Stuart Burt and children's casting by Jo Hawes.

Who is The Drifters Girl for?

The Drifters Girl is recommended for anyone old enough to enjoy the music and understand the plot.

The Drifters Girl Musical in London There are two types of jukebox musicals, the term given to shows which stitch together existing hits to tell a story. Some have an original plot, such as WE WILL ROCK YOU, MAMMA MIA and MOULIN ROUGE but equally successful are productions which tell the story of the artists who first recorded the material eg. BEAUTIFUL-THE CAROL KING MUSICAL, JERSEY BOYS and TINA.
