Mansfield Palace Theatre is hosting two nights next month of the fantastic musical – ‘Over The Rainbow: The Eva Cassidy Story’.

Since its first performance in 2004, this compelling musical play has received rapturous receptions - and if you enter our competition, you could be there to watch it for free.

The show is the moving story of Washington-born singer Eva Cassidy. By the time of her death, she was unknown outside Washington, but within four years Terry Wogan discovered and promoted her haunting interpretation of ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ and helped it to the top of the charts.

The sad, but uplifting musical play journeys through her life, from her idyllic childhood growing up in a musical family, to her studio work with boyfriend and mentor Chris Biondo and to her tragically premature death aged 33.

‘Over The Rainbow: The Eva Cassidy Story’ has already wowed audiences all over Europe and includes more than 27 of her best-loved songs, recreated by a multi-talented cast of West End performers, including unforgettable classics such as ‘Fields of Gold’, ‘Songbird’, ‘Autumn Leaves’, ‘Kathy’s Song’ and many more.

Hollyoaks actress Sarah Jane Buckley stars as Eva Cassidy and Pauline Fleming, (Coronation Street; Brookside) plays Barbara Cassidy. Rob McVeigh (PopStar! The Musical; Any Dream Will Do) features as Danny Cassidy.

‘Over The Rainbow: The Eva Cassidy Story’ will be at The Mansfield Palace Theatre on Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd March, 7.30pm.

Tickets are £18 / £17 Concs from the Box Office on 01623 633133, or online at For more information, visit the website at
