Speaking ahead of her on-stage debut in the production she said: 'I am so excited that for my first theatre role I will be playing such an iconic character. I cannot wait to join the cast of Breakfast at Tiffany's as Holly Golightly.

'It's a wonderful adaptation of an incredible story and I'm really thrilled to be part of it.'

Set in New York in 1943, Breakfast At Tiffany's tells the story of young writer Fred who meets the charming and vivacious yet elusive Holly. She is highly sought after by everyone including Fred but he just cannot compete with her fellow suitors which include the likes of a playboy millionaire and the future president of Brazil.
