DOLLYWOOD TO HOLLYWOOD
This acclaimed 2-hour show, performed by the extremely talented and world-renowned Miss Julia Martin, pays tribute to the musical journey from rags to riches of the undisputed queen of country music ‘Dolly Parton’. With vocals direct from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Tennessee, mannerisms that are ‘Pure Dolly’ and a stage presence that commands the room, Julia weaves her magic and delivers a show that makes you feel that Dolly herself is in the theatre. This foot stomping, hand clapping show, captures the audience from start to finish, with Julia combining Dolly’s hit classic songs and unique one-liners into a spectacular performance.
Attention to detail, careful research and a commitment to accurately portray Dolly both vocally and visually is what makes ‘Dollywood to Hollywood’ special. Julia becomes Dolly in every way, wig, make-up, fingernails, sequined costumes and of course the famous red lip-stick. The chat between songs is equally convincing, and with split second timing Julia delivers Dolly’s unique ‘one-liners’. Audience engagement is also guaranteed with Julia walking amongst the audience, handing out tambourines and making every person in the theatre feel special, without even missing a beat from the songs that she is performing. A tribute show is not simply about looking like someone, you have to become that person, you have to be able to step onto stage, capture the audience, and sell the illusion, and Julia does that in abundance.
