‘Nancy’ Joins the Faenol Line-Up

THE winner of the search to find Nancy for the new West End production of Oliver! is the latest star to join the Faenol Festival line-up.

Jodie Prenger will join John Barrowman, one of the judges who voted for her on the BBC's I'll Do Anything, for the musicals gala at the Faenol Estate on August 24.

Bryn Terfel said: "This year's musical theatre gala brings an incredible line-up of West End stars together - she is a welcome addition."

After winning the role of Nancy, Prenger will perform alongside Rowan Atkinson, who plays Fagin, and Burn Gorman from BBC Wales series Torchwood, as love interest Bill Sikes.

Boyzone will open this year's four-day Faenol Festival on August 22. There will also be an opera gala and the annual Tan y Ddraig concert, featuring the best of Welsh language rock and pop.
