EXPERIENCE the musical journey of American stars, Barry Manilow and Bette Midler in a new show starring a Doncaster mum.

Vanessa Pindori, of Fenwick, will take the Can’t Smile Without You show to the Little Theatre stage on Saturday alongside Jason Lee Howlett, who has recently starred as Frankie Valli in the touring show, Jersey Boys.

Born from a life-long admiration for the world-famous superstars, the show promises to take audiences on a journey through Bette and Barry’s greatest hits.

Professional entertainer Vanessa, currently living in Fishlake, has spent the past 14 years performing - mainly in Tenerife as a stand-up comedy artist, where she lives with husband Ket and two-year-old daughter, Yasmin.

She said: “I decided I want to do this and it was now or never. My husband and I run a travel agency in Tenerife so I’ve left him running that while I take some time out to push this show.

“I’m a huge fan of Bette. This is a great family show and It’s suitable for all the family and we’ve got people coming from all across the country to see it.”

Former High Melton College student Vanessa, 37, has recently performed shows in Blackpool and Southend-on-Sea in Essex.

Morgan Lee Radcliffe, 17, of Braithwaite, and Chloe Parkes, 18, of Wheatley Hills, will star as Barry and Bette’s backing singers.
