The story follows Charlie Price struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price and Son.

With the shoe factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola - a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

West End star Kayi Ushe will be putting on the big boots to play Lola.
He will be joined by Paula Lane as Lauren, best known for her role as Kylie Platt in Coronation Street, and Joel Harper-Jackson, who recently starred in the The Curious Incident of the

Dog in the Night Time UK tour, playing Charlie Price.
