Sheridan Smith will reprise her role as Cilla Black in a new production of the musical based on the entertainer’s life.
Smith, who starred as Black in the ITV drama Cilla in 2015, will play her in a revival tour of Cilla the Musical.
The show, written by Jeff Pope who also wrote the TV series, will open for a four-week residency at the Liverpool Empire on September 23.
It will then tour to Aylesbury, Edinburgh, Birmingham and Leeds, ending in November.
The show is directed by Bill Kenwright and Bob Tomson and produced by Bill Kenwright Productions.
Cilla the Musical premiered in 2017, when the lead role was cast through a series of open auditions. It went on to be played by Kara Lily Hayworth.
