Dolly Parton’s biggest hits to feature in one helluva musical

Here You Come Again

Newcastle Theatre Royal

Tuesday 18 – Saturday 22 June 2024

Here You Come Again, a rollicking and joyful new musical, fully authorised by Dolly Parton herself, bringing together all of her biggest hits for the first time ever, is visiting Newcastle Theatre Royal on its premiere UK tour.

Packed with the iconic songs Jolene, 9 to 5, Islands in the Stream, I Will Always Love You, Here You Come Again and more, this lively and touching new musical makes its North East debut at the iconic Grey Street venue and tells the story of a diehard fan whose imagined version of international icon Dolly Parton gets him through trying times.

Having enjoyed several successful performances across the United States, Here You Come Again was originally written by multi-Emmy award-winning comedy and songwriter Bruce Vilanch with Gabriel Barre (who also directs) and writer and actor Tricia Paoluccio (who co-writes and stars as Dolly). It has now been adapted by acclaimed British screen and theatre writer Jonathan Harvey who has written hundreds of episodes of the popular soap Coronation Street as well as television sitcoms Gimme, Gimme, Gimme and Beautiful People.

Director Gabriel Barre said: “We are so excited to bring this gem of a show to the UK, following its successful regional tour in America. Setting it in the UK with a brilliant new British actor playing the lead role of Kevin, along with a creative UK design team, gives us a chance to take a fresh approach to a story that features all of Dolly’s biggest hits, along with her wit and wisdom, which the world needs today, more than ever.”

With her wit, humour and charm, Dolly teaches her biggest fan a whole lot about life, love and how to pull yourself up by your bootstraps…even if your bootstraps don’t have rhinestones!

Full casting still to be announced.


Here You Come Again, a musical that is sure to make you smile, plays Newcastle Theatre Royal Tue 18 – Sat 22 Jun. Tickets can be purchased at or from the Theatre Royal Box Office on 0191 232 7010.
