More Hampton Court Palace Details
As Rachel mentioned in her recent blog update, she'll be appearing at the Hampton Court Palace Festival on Thursday 11th June.
Unfortunately I won't be able to make it as I'll be in Canada that week, but at huge expense we've arranged for our roving reporter Rosie to be there with her state of the art camera to preserve the event for posterity.
Here are some more details of the event -- note who has top billing!
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra's Best of Broadway
featuring Rachel Tucker, Mary Carewe, Ria Jones, Michael Dore and Graham Bickley>
Now in its 17th year, the Hampton Court Palace Festival has grown into one of the UK's most exciting music events. In a setting like no other, the newly presented Base Court plays host to an eclectic mix of concerts over 10 nights featuring some of the biggest names from the world of music.
The combination of warm summer nights, picnics in the 17th century gardens and some of the world's leading musicians make for a truly magical and unforgettable experience.
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by David Firman, brings this exciting show celebrating the very best of Broadway and the West End to Hampton Court Palace Festival this summer.
The show will feature a selection of best-loved numbers from the greatest productions in history including Grease, Mamma Mia, Cabaret, Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables. The dazzling cast of singers include Ria Jones, Mary Carewe, Graham Bickley, Michael Dore and Rachel Tucker from TV fame I'd Do Anything. Trained at the Royal Academy of Music Rachel was a finalist for the role of Nancy in the talent show I'd do Anything and has since appeared in Ben Elton's We Will Rock You.
