Carousel Opening Night 12

Published: 12 August 2021

What a great gala night for Carousel!

Family, friends and supporters all came together for our opening of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. Angela Rippon CBE , Bonnie Langford, Amy Hart, Tina Daheley, Dame Jenni Murray and Brenda Edwards joined a line of supporters that included Jessica Hynes, Dame Arlene Philips, Roisin Conaty, Amy Tapper, Christopher Biggins, Harriet Thorpe, Omari Douglas and Patricia Hodge OBE.

In true Open Air Theatre style, we defied the weather and, afterwards, the Company celebrated following a full standing ovation.
