Julie Hewitt


Julie grew up in the beautiful county of Norfolk, just outside the 'Fine City of Norwich'.  Painfully shy in her schooldays, Julie found her feet, and her voice, on the stage and has since embraced roles from panto princesses to tragic heroines, sultry sirens to ditzy dames! Julie's favourite musical theatre roles have included Sally Bowles in 'Cabaret', Gloria in 'Return to the Forbidden Planet' and Yum Yum in 'The Hot Mikado', alongside acting roles including Celia in 'Calendar Girls', Louise in 'Murder on the Nile' and Bella in 'Gaslight'.


Singing the beautiful songs of Edith Piaf has been Julie's long held ambition, and paying tribute to this iconic artist and extraordinary lady is a compelling and amazing experience which never pales. Julie says that having the opportunity to share Edith's music and remarkable life-story with an audience is continually exciting and daunting in equal measure and knowing that some of the audience will already share her love of France's 'Little Sparrow' whilst others are hearing her songs for the first time, feels like a great honour.

David Rees


David’s first taste of “dramatic success” came as a child, when he received an Acting Certificate from actor John Laurie of  ‘Dad’s Army’ and  his varied credits include roles in classical opera, G&S and musical theatre. David’s many roles include: Professor Higgins in ‘My Fair Lady’, Tevye in 'Fiddler on the Roof', Captain Von Trapp in ‘The Sound of Music’, Freddy in ‘Chess’, Mack Sennett in ‘Mack and Mabel’ and Roger de Brise in 'The Producers'. When not singing David has played well-loved characters such as Rene in 'Allo Allo' and Mister Tom in 'Goodnight Mister Tom'. In recent years he has also developed quite a liking for the directors chair!


David has found devising and producing this show to be an extraordinary experience, sharing his and Julie's appreciation and affection for Edith Piaf with audiences. Julie and David are also able to indulge their love of timeless vintage music in their 'De-Lovely 1930's Show' celebrating the great songwriters and performers of the 1930's and 40's. He feels that the music of the past is an unending pleasure for the present and inspiration for the future.
