Ceili is very excited to be performing her cabaret e with new material, new guests and new stories. Come and join her for plenty of laughs, cocktails and classics.

This is a role Ceili knows and loves. She has had the opportunity to understudy a couple of the most iconic roles in the West End and on UK tours. However, such is the nature of understudying, Ceili never got the chance to play those parts in front of a live audience. In The Understudy, Ceili will be performing some of those iconic songs. After all, she’s well rehearsed and can finally get the chance to tick them off the bucket list.

With Somewhere over the Rainbow, Never Fall in love with an Elf to Jackson 5’s ABC. The Understudy promises to be an eclectic mix of good music with a few surprises along the way.

Ceili counts her lucky stars to have had the opportunity to work on these fantastic roles so come and join her in her journey and get an insight to what it’s like to be the one waiting in the wings….
