Myra DuBois is a multi-awarding as seen on television star of stage and screens both large and small; and she’d be the first to remind you. Self-declaring herself to be ‘The Siren from South Yorkshire’, Myra is a 21st Century renaissance woman! An accomplished actress, poet, muse, wellness guru, Gemini and (dare we forget) singer, Myra has accrued legions of faithful disciples, her beloved AdMyras, since exploding onto the London stage in 2008 after a previous life of Working Men’s Clubs and amateur dramatics in her native Rotherham.
Perhaps you’ve seen Myra on one of the exciting cabaret stages of the capital, including Madam Jojo’s, the London Hippodrome and the infamous Royal Vauxhall Tavern to name but three. Did you catch her Christmas show, ‘We Wish You A Myra Christmas’ which has played at the Charring Cross Theatre, Soho Theatre and Southbank Centre? Or could it be that you saw her critically acclaimed solo show ‘Dead Funny’ at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe or its international debut at the Sydney Opera House?
In recent years, Myra DuBois has become a popular star of pantomime appearing as Dame Trott in Jack and the Beanstalk (Carriageworks Theatre, Leeds), Sarah the Cook in Dick Whittington (Spotlight, Broxbourne) and the evil Carabosse in Sleeping Beauty (Carriageworks Theatre, Leeds) for which she won ‘Best Villain (Female)’ at the 2020 Great British Pantomime Awards.
You might have caught her as a guest on ‘The John Bishop Show’ (BBC1), a panellist on ‘Big Brother’s Bit on the Side’ (Channel 5) or glimpsed her on ‘Dom Jolly’s Fool Britannia’ (ITV). If you missed all of those, later this year you’ll be able to catch her in the major motion picture adaptation of ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’ which hits screens in October 2020.
