Beautiful, charming, sophisticated, elegant, passionate and ever-so-slightly devious with just a suspicion of a fiery temper, Vicki has portrayed the role of Jacqueline in Mark Camoletti’s Don’t Dress For Dinner on numerous occasions, encompassing No 1 UK and overseas tours and a number of Summer Seasons for such producers as Mark Furness, Chris Moreno and Ian Dickens.
It is a role for which she has received much critical acclaim not least for her highly renowned comedy timing.
The play is set in a stylish converted farmhouse in France and centres around happily married couple, Jacqueline and Bernard, or are they? With his wife planning a trip to her mothers, Bernard hopes to play host to his sophisticated French mistress for the weekend but when Jacqueline intercepts an unexpected phone call from the local catering agency, events spiral into chaos as it becomes obvious that they are not being entirely honest with each other!
Casts have included; Lionel Blair, Robert Duncan, David Callister, Les Dennis, Fraser Hines, Giles Watling, Su Pollard, Sue Hodge, Sally Ann Matthews, Carol Harrison, Glenda Mckay, Marti Caine, Amanda Humphrey, Melanie Stace and Mandy Perryment.

Vicki Michelle packs a powerful punch.
I half expected Allo Allo veteran Vicki Michelle to run on in short skirt speaking pigeon French. Instead she played scorned and adulterous wife Jacqueline with a plummy English accent and great aplomb.
Vicki Michelle was in delectable form.
Vicki Michelle was an excellent foil as Jacqueline and brought depth and dignity to a somewhat understated role.
Requiring split second timing and a huge amount of stage craft, it could not be in better hands than with this team of TV favourites led by Vicki Michelle, Robert Duncan & Giles Watling.
Attractive Vicki Michelle played the straight man in fine style. Skilfully she set up one comic situation and comedy line after another.

Michelle succeeds in making the character formidable enough to command authority while endowing her with enough humour and vulnerability to prevent her becoming the stock marital dragon.
