Stage - Call Me Diana

Diana Princess of Wales was, and still is one of the greatest icons of our time. No other human being has ever had the following that she had and, remarkably still has, nearly 20 years after her death. The incredible love for the beauty that was Princess Diana is still as strong as ever, her millions of fans the world over still voice their affection on a daily basis.
‘Call Me Diana’ is a celebration of that undying love. There is no mention of conspiracy theories or other such distractions, this musical is written to make every Diana fan the world over leave the theatre elated.
As each scene of the Royal Fairy Tale unfolds in spectacular fashion, a story within the story tells of the intrusive involvement of the media, in Diana's life.

Every musical needs its villains, and the media is ours. Apart from one TV Journalist, Ben, who shows an unrequited love for the People's Princess. The closer Ben is required to get to Diana, the stronger his love for Her Royal Highness becomes. His emotions are a complete reflection of the feelings of millions of Diana fans the world over, thus enabling every member of the audience to re-live their love for the Princess through our leading man. His frustrations echo their frustrations. His anger echoes their anger. His love echoes their love.
Each spectacular scene, along with 20 wonderful original music tracks, takes us through Princess Diana's fascinating and emotional Royal journey. Starting with her untimely death in Paris, and travelling back in time we witness the shy young woman who loses her way through a broken fairy tale. Only to emerge at the other end as the confident and loving world icon she became, leading us to an amazing uplifting finale to a show that will bring a tear and a smile to the faces of Diana fans the world over.

Great Reviews
  • The idea is a really strong one, as I am sure you know, and the songs you've provided here definitely piqued my curiosity! 'Love Double Cross' is especially strong, and I liked the Gilbert & Sullivan flavour of 'A Sergeant Major's Job'. Please keep me posted as the project develops. If there is a reading in the near future, I'd be delighted to attend.

A musical taster

There are twenty original big numbers in our show, there's a few here to give you a taster. It's a refreshing new look at musicals, yet with all the familiarity of those old engaging shows.

It's on its way!

Our slightly adventurous plan is to open on August 31st 2017

As of December 2016, the funding for our show is in place. We are currently putting the team of professionals together who will bring our show to stages across the world. Our slightly adventurous plan is to have opening night on August 31st 2017, exactly 20 years to the day since Diana was killed on that fateful night in Paris. We would ideally like to premier our spectacular show here, in London, Diana's home. We’re convinced that this is a real 'bums on seats' musical. A show with unique audience participation right from the opening scenes.
