Dolly Diamond will be rescuing contestants from their mundane lives, transforming them into their idols and making them stars for a night! Which stars will be unveiled? And who will win? Music icons and idols will be brought to life in DOLLY DIAMOND’S STAR FOR A NIGHT, Midsumma’s newest spectacular at Chapel Off Chapel from 21 – 24 April.
“I am so excited to be back on stage live this Midsumma and can’t wait to find out who your favourite stars are,” says megastar Dolly Diamond. “Making dreams come true is all in a day’s work for me and now people are paying to watch!” she added.
Fresh from your lockdown livestream, Dolly Diamond has converted Chapel Off Chapel into a television studio where, each night she will put celebrity contestants through their paces. They will perform the songs and take on the look of their favourite entertainment idols – and this can be any music superstar, alive or dead.
Dolly’s special guests for these performances included Bob Downe, Silvie Paladino, Rhonda Burchmore, Lucy Holmes, and, at each performance, Tash York and Matthew Hadgraft.
