At the gala, we were treated – after being given a glass of free fizz to cover the waiting time – to special guest performances from Michael Ball, flirting and duetting with all and sundry in a hilarious ‘All I Ask Of You’ and Sierra Boggess delivering a sensational bilingual ‘Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again’.
Joining the cast from Monday 5 September are Siôn Lloyd as ‘Monsieur Firmin’; Mark Oxtoby as ‘Monsieur Andre’; Paul Ettore Tabone as ‘Piangi’ and Daisy Hulbert as ‘Meg’. Also continuing their roles are: Megan Llewellyn as ‘Carlotta’ and Jacinta Mulcahy as ‘Madame Giry’. Harriet Jones returns as alternate ‘Christine Daaé’.
