Joni is returning to The Foxlowe for her third consecutive year as part of The Leek Arts Festival to perform her show “A Night At The Musicals”. It’s a celebration of some of the greatest musicals of the last century, ranging from the golden era classics of Rogers and Hammerstein, The Gershwin’s and Cole Porter to the more recent works of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Boublil and Schönberg and Stephen Sondheim to name but a few!  This time Joni is delighted to be introducing a very special guest, whom she promises will be a real treat: one of London’s leading men, William Byrne.

William, originally from Ireland has an extensive list of credentials behind him. He appeared in the revival of “Jesus Christ Superstar” at the Lyceum where he took over the role of “Jesus” and toured throughout the British Isles and Europe. Other theatre credits include “Thorin Oakenshield” in the acclaimed stage adaptation of “The Hobbit” (Queens Theatre in the West End and on national tour), “Emcee” in “Cabaret”, “Joseph” in “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”, “The Arbitor” in “Chess” and “Bob Cratchit” in “Scrooge”.  He has also appeared on the British small screen with Martin Kemp in “Casino Casino”.  William represented Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1996.

Joni and William have been performing together for the last three years in shows at The Brick Lane Music Hall, Queens Theatre (Hornchurch) and various other cabaret venues across London. Their mutual passion for musical theatre and entertaining makes for a special performance.

A percentage of all ticket sales and the raffle proceeds will be incorporated in the fundraising for Scott McGrath of Leek Deansgate Osteopaths, who is taking on the Tough Guy Nettle Warrior challenge in memory of Charlie Talks for The Brain Tumour Charity.

Tickets are £10 and can be purchased from The Foxlowe in advance or on the door.
