Photo Flash: First Look at THE GLENN MILLER STORY

Legendary performer Tommy Steele takes to the stage at the London Coliseum in The Glenn Miller Story this summer alongside Marti Webb. The show runs for a limited season from 6 July - 18 August.

60 years after making his stage debut at the London Coliseum in 1958 starring in Rogers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, the celebrated singer and actor Tommy Steele - Britain's first Rock and Roll star - returns to this prestigious London stage to celebrate his idol Glenn Miller in a new musical production.

Glenn Miller was the best selling recording artist in the world from 1939 to 1943, leading one of the best known big bands. In those four years, he scored 23 number-one hits - more than Elvis Presley and The Beatles.

The cast will be completed by: Autumn Draper, Charlie Tighe, Devon McKenzie-Smith, Howard Samuels, Holly Rostron, Jessica Ellen, Jordan Oliver, Linal Haft, Myles Brown, Oliver Ramsdale, Siobhan Diffin, Tim Maxwell-Clarke and Tom Sowinski who form the ensemble, performing alongside the 16 piece big band.

The Glenn Miller Story features the journey the legendary big band leader took to find his unique sound, and his subsequent fame and untimely death. With the authentic sounds of In the Mood, Moonlight Serenade, Little Brown Jug, Pennsylvania 6-5000, Tuxedo Junction, Chattanooga Choo Choo, and many more era-defining favourites. It is produced by Bill Kenwright with choreography by Olivier Award Winner Bill Deamer and direction by Bob Tomson and Bill Kenwright.
