She was a musical superstar with the world at her feet, but the career of Julie Andrews was defined by two squeaky-clean characters – Mary Poppins and Maria in The Sound Of Music.

But once the director called cut, how did she deal with the demands of being both the world’s most famous nanny and nun?

You can get one take on how personal and professional clashed when Julie Madly Deeply arrives at Hemel Hempstead’s Old Town Hall for one night on Friday evening.

The show is fresh from an Australian tour and an acclaimed Edinburgh Festival run, and this cheeky yet affectionate cabaret explores the life of a much loved star and her relationship with her adoring fans.

It’s written and performed by the award-winning singer, West End actress and Fascinating Aida star Sarah-Louise Young, named by Time Out as one of London’s top ten cabaret performers.

Tickets are £12, with £10 concessions (Dacorum Card holders £8) – visit www.oldtownhall.co.uk or call 01442 228091.
