Newport-Born actress Caroline Sheen will join The Welsh Musical Theatre Orchestra as they return to live performances with an outdoor concert entitled Gala in the Park taking place at Newport’s Belle Vue Park on Saturday 7th August.
Most recently starring in the West End production of 9 to 5 the Musical, Caroline has appeared in musicals all over the world, from Grease in London, to the title role in Mary Poppins, touring in America.
Caroline Sheen To Perform With Welsh Musical Theatre Orchestra
Caroline said, “It’s such an exciting feeling to be singing again after the Arts has been locked away during the pandemic. I’ve been a patron of WMTO for a number of years now, and if anyone is going to make a triumphant return to Musical Theatre, it’s them. What a treat to be able to sing some of my favourite show tunes with a full orchestra after all this time!”
Caroline Sheen is the first singer to be announced in the line-up of stars appearing in Gala in the Park. WMTO conductor Andrew Hopkins said, “I’m so proud that the orchestra is supported by someone as high profile as Caroline Sheen. She is truly at the top of the musical theatre industry and one of the best ambassadors for the arts that we have in Wales.”
