“Natalie is a first class performer who has wowed audiences in the West End and toured professionally for almost a decade.

Amy Noonan, who is cast as the lead role of Sherrie in the Ely production, said: “Having insight from a professional performer who has played the same role is just invaluable.
“It’s amazing that Ruby Red have managed to arrange such a first rate experience for an already excited cast.
“I can’t wait to see what she thinks of the work we’ve done so far, and of course to hear any behind the scenes gossip she has from being part of such a great show on the West End.”
