Gemma Collins to star in ‘Chicago’ in Cardiff

TV personality Gemma Collins will star as ‘Mama Morton’ in the acclaimed UK and Ireland tour of the international smash hit musical Chicago, which visits Cardiff in June, it has been announced

Gemma Collins is best known as a media personality and businesswoman, having first featured in the reality series The Only Way Is Essex.

She was the 2021 winner of the Best Female Personality at the National Reality Television Awards. She has also appeared in I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!, Celebrity Big Brother, Dancing on Ice and All Together Now.

Most recently Gemma was seen on screens with the Channel 4 documentary, Gemma Collins: Self-Harm & Me. Before finding fame on The Only Way Is Essex, Gemma was a keen performer, having studied dance and winning a place at the renowned Sylvia Young Theatre School.

Gemma joins Faye Brookes as Roxie Hart, Djalenga Scott as Velma Kelly, Jamie Baughan as Amos Hart and B.E. Wong as Mary Sunshine. The role of Billy Flynn will be announced soon.

Set amid the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her lover after he threatens to walk out on her.

Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids.

Chicago plays at the New Theatre from June 20 to 25. You can book tickets here.
