The Dixie Dean story

Last updated : 28 April 2008 By Les Roberts

The production will run for three performances and will tell the story of the world's first and greatest ever number nine.

The starring role will be played by Birkenhead born actor Steve Hazelhurst whose television credits include Cold Blood and Blue Murder and the film Outlaw (I was in that film too…no, really!).

The three performances will run as follows:

Premiere night - 7.30pm Monday 5th May

Matinee Performance - 12.30pm Tuesday 6th May

Closing night - 7.30pm Tuesday 6th May

The production kicks off on the 5th May for a very good reason, it coincides with the 80th anniversary of William Ralph scoring his legendary 60th goal in the 1927/28 season.

Tickets will cost £10 each for the evening performances and £7.50 each for the matinee performance and are available by calling 0151 284 7067 or by visiting the website.

This is one of just two Everton related events taking place during Liverpool's Capital of Culture year, the other is a docu-drama about Dixie Dean, so it needs everyone's full support.

And you just know it's going to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end!
