Pupils invited to sing beside West End’s leading lady
Singing superstars have been invited to audition for the chance to perform alongside one of musical theatre’s biggest stars at a live concert at Dumfries House next year.
Talented pupils and groups are to be given the chance to star alongside Kerry Ellis, widely considered to be the leading lady of London’s West End, at the Cumnock estate in front of hundreds of people at An Evening Of Music From The West End on Saturday, March 16.
Kerry, who has held starring roles in Wicked, We Will Rock You and Les Miserables, will be joined onstage by Britain’s Got Talent winner Jai McDowall, who performed for members of the Royal Family at the Royal Variety Performance in 2011.
Speaking of her upcoming performance, Kerry said: “I am thrilled to be performing at An Evening of Music from the West End next year.
“Supporting The Prince’s Foundation is an honour as I know the charity does a lot to support good causes.
“The evening is going to be a great night and I hope to see lots of people in the audience supporting such a great cause.”
Jai, originally from Tarbolton, added: “I’m really excited to be performing at Dumfries House as it’s not only a stunning venue in a beautiful setting but it is also very close to home.”
