Roxanne Pallett in Coliseum's Satin 'n' Steel
Date: 24 February 2011
Former Emmerdale star Roxanne Pallett will be performing at the Coliseum in Satin ‘N’ Steel this April. The young actress found fame as the feisty Jo Stiles in the hit soap. Her portrayal as a victim of domestic violence during Jo’s relationship with Andy Sugden earned her six TV award nominations including Best Actress and Best Storyline.
After three years on the ITV soap, Roxanne left to develop her acting career both on screen and stage. Her most recent stage work includes The Vagina Monologues and the lead in the national tour of Rock Around the Clock. Roxanne also wowed audiences on the 2009 series of Dancing on Ice.
Having showcased her vocal talent on Soapstar Superstar and winning Celebrity Stars in Their Eyes, Roxanne is ready to stretch her vocal chords again for the Coliseum. Roxanne will be playing Teena Satin, one half of singing duo Satin ‘N’ Steel that try to make it big working the Northern club circuit.
Amanda Whittington’s play tells the story of jaded veteran performer Vince Steel who has been “doing” the Northern club circuit for years, but his career has never quite reached the dizzy heights he dreamed of. When he meets aspiring karaoke singer Teena, he takes her on as his protégée in an attempt to add some glamour to his act, and it works.
As singing duo Satin ‘n’ Steel, Vince and Teena look like they’re heading straight to the top. Together they feel like they can achieve anything, and the pair fall deeply in love. But just when it seems all Teena’s dreams will come true, Vince’s guilty secret threatens to burst their bubble and shatter everything they have worked so hard for.
Satin 'n' Steel runs at the Oldham Coliseum from 14 April - 7 May

|I can't wait. Roxanne's vocals are outstanding. Anyone who caught her stunning rendition of Etta James' "At Last" in Rock Around The Clock would surely agree.
