Vicki Michelle

  • Birthday:December 14, 1950
  • Birth Place: Chigwell, Essex, England
  • Biography: Born in London, England into a theatrical family, Vicki was educated locally before training at the Aida Foster Theatre School and quickly won a variety of roles in film, television and on stage but it was her portrayal of Yvette in the hit BBC series 'Allo Allo' that gained her worldwide recognition. Vicki played Yvette for all nine series with the stage version taking her on national and international tours to Australia and New Zealand smashing box office records, not to mention four seasons in London's West End at the Palladium, Prince of Wales and Dominion theatres. Renowned for her versatility, Vicki began her extensive acting career playing leading straight roles in Softly Softly, The Professionals, Minder and Play for Today but her wonderful gift for comedy timing soon brought her to the roles with which we are most familiar. On TV she has worked with the greatest names in British comedy including Les Dawson, The Two Ronnies, Ken Dodd and Kenny Everett, and has appeared in such series as Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads, Are you Being Served and Come Back Mrs Noah; her role in the latter being directly instrumental in her winning the part of Yvette in Allo Allo. She has also made guest appearances on countless chat and game shows including Noel's Houseparty, This Morning, Generation Game, Give Us A Clue, Through The Keyhole, All Over The Shop, Today's The Day, Loose Lips, The Weakest Link, Stars Reunited, Britain's Best Sitcom, and the documentary Pantoland. Added to this she is also an accomplished presenter and is frequently sought after today as a speaker at corporate functions. She also regularly hosts charity events around the country. Film credits include The Greek Tycoon, The Likely Lads, George and Mildred and The Colour of Funny. In the year 2000, Vicki embarked on a totally new venture working with English Sinfonia. Not only did she perform with them at The Cressing Temple Festival in Braintree - England but also narrated Edith Sitwell poetry to William Walton's Façade at the orchestra's home venue, The Gordon Craig Theatre, Stevenage, England, bringing a sparkling new dimension to the work which will long be remembered. Extensive theatre work has taken her from drama to pantomime, musicals to comedy. She played opposite Dudley Moore in Play It Again Sam at the Globe Theatre - London, the leading roles of Vera in Doctor In The House, Mina in Dracula, Renee in Women Of A Certain Age, Ruth in Alan Ayckbourn's Round and Round The Garden and Table Manners and Bathsheba in the British musical version of Beauty and the Beast. Recent years have proved particularly momentous for Vicki in the theatre where she has performed continuously scoring a string of major successes most notably for her portrayals of Hilda Bigley in the new comedy Business Affairs by Jeremy Lloyd and John Chapman; Glenda Parry in The Tart and the Vicar's Wife, a role allowing her to rediscover her more dramatic roots; Jacqueline in Don't Dress For Dinner, a role with which Vicki has become synonymous and as the incorrigible Miss Hannigan in the musical Annie where her dynamic performances were received by the rapturous response of audiences and critics alike. An experienced pantomime performer, Vicki has played the title role in Aladdin, the Red Queen in Snow White, Genie in Aladdin, The Fairy in Jack and the Beanstalk and Mother Goose, Mrs. Darling and Hook's sister, Harrietta in Peter Pan (the latter breaking box office records) and most recently, the Lady Cruella in Cinderella, Llandudno where she scored a major triumph with her characterisation, giving a modern approach to the traditional pantomime `baddie' while retaining all the essential elements. Last year Vicki completed a six-month tour of the UK in the Ray Cooney Farce Out of Order and appeared in Reflections - The Musical Journey of Diana Ross. Most recently Vicki has performed overseas where she recreated the role of Jacqueline in Don't Dress for Dinner and starred as Sally in Bedside Manners, new to her repertoire. These performances were immediately followed in the UK by a return to the role of Miss Hannigan in Annie, for Kevin Wood Productions and two hugely contrasting characterisations in the 50th anniversary revival of the musical Salad Days as Lady Raeburn and Asphynxia for Matthew Townshend Productions which toured nationally in the UK.
