Newark audiences will totally love Tina...

More news, no ads


This show is certain to be simply the best... better than all the rest, perhaps.

That’s right, Totally Tina will be coming to Newark’s Palace Theatre next month and it will have you dancing the night away.

Shake a tail feather with the UK’s supreme Tina, Justine Riddoch, and her talented cast.

Justine recreates those famed live performances, with dancing girls, sequins, feathers and diamonds to really captivate audiences.

Justine first found fame performing as Anastasia on Stars in Their Eyes in 2002, but having been told how much she sounded like Tina Turner, she began working on her act.

After hours of scrutinising video footage, watching mannerisms and movements, and making the all important wig, deciding which costumes to copy, listening to patter and hundreds of versions of the same songs from different decades, Totally Tina was created.

A troupe of professional dancers were hand-picked, choreography based on Tina’s live shows and our own unique creations were created and the whole production was rehearsed, tweaked and rehearsed again.

Justine said: “I’ve been myself a lot longer than I’ve been a tribute to any artist and its strange sometimes to transform into my big alter ego.

“But you get away with an awful lot with being Tina! Her sheer presence, her energy, her humility and dynamite vocals.

"If I can’t achieve success in my own right and her fans aren’t too upset, I cannot think of anyone I would rather pay homage to.

“I always say to our audiences at the end, if you felt for just one second you were watching Tina again then our job is done.”

If you love all of the hits, such as Proud Mary, Nutbush City Limits, Simply the Best and What’s Love Got to Do With It, you really do not want to miss this show.

Tickets are available now for the show.

It will be taking place at Newark’s Palace Theatre on Saturday, May 7 at 7:30pm. Tickets are £25.50 and can be bought from www.palacenewarktickets.com
