Further Venues Announced For Alexandra Burke In THE BODYGUARD Tour

Producers, Michael Harrison and David Ian are delighted to announce that Alexandra Burke will play the role of 'Rachel Marron' in the award-winning smash hit musical THE BODYGUARD when it plays the Mayflower Theatre, Southampton (28 May - 8 June 2019), Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham (11 - 22 June 2019), Newcastle Theatre Royal (23 July - 3 August 2019) and Bord Gais Energy Theatre Dublin (7 - 17 August 2019). Full list of all the venues Alexandra Burke will play the role of 'Rachel Marron' are listed below.

Alexandra Burke returns to the role of 'Rachel Marron' following her triumphant run in the show in both the West End and the subsequent sell out 2015/2016 tour. She first rose to fame after winning the fifth series of The X Factor and her debut number one single Hallelujah sold over one million copies in the UK, a first for a British female soloist. She most recently appeared as 'Svetlana' in "Chess" at the London Coliseum and can currently be seen as 'Roxie' in "Chicago" at the West End's Phoenix Theatre. Last year she reached the final of "Strictly Come Dancing". Her other theatre credits include 'Deloris Van Cartier' in the national tour of the musical "Sister Act".

Alexandra Burke will perform the role of 'Rachel Marron' at all evening performances only.

Based on Lawrence Kasdan's 1992 Oscar nominated Warner Bros. movie starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner, THE BODYGUARD, directed by Thea Sharrock with book by Oscar winning (Birdman) Alex Dinelaris, had its world premiere at the Adelphi Theatre in London's West End in 2012 and was nominated for four Olivier Awards. A sell out 18 month UK and Ireland tour followed, before the show returned to the West End at the Dominion Theatre. THE BODYGUARD has also played in the Netherlands, Germany, South Korea, Canada, Italy, Australia, Madrid, France, and on tour throughout the US and can currently be seen in Stuttgart.

Former Secret Service agent turned bodyguard, Frank Farmer, is hired to protect superstar Rachel Marron from an unknown stalker. Each expects to be in charge; what they don't expect is to fall in love. A romantic thriller, THE BODYGUARD features a host of irresistible classics including Queen of the Night, So Emotional, One Moment in Time, Saving All My Love, Run to You, I Have Nothing, I Wanna Dance with Somebody and one of the biggest hit songs of all time - I Will Always Love You.
