Box Office Worker Jennifer Caldwell Made Full Cast Member of KNIGHTS OF THE ROSE
Actress Jennifer Caldwell, was working on the box office at the Arts Theatre West End when the show's Producer asked for her help. Due to an unfortunate bout of cast illness, they needed to fill a major role in the production as the understudy was already covering another actor.
Jennifer agreed to help and by 7pm she was on stage playing the role of Emily. She took to the stage as if she had been in the cast from the start, and spectacularly came to the rescue to ensure that that night's performance - a special gala charity to raise money for DEBRA the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by Epidermolysis Bullosa - went ahead.
After Jennifer saved the day, the evening went on to raise £15,000 for the charity. Astounded by how quickly she learnt the songs and dance routines, the Producers of Knights of the Rose have now asked Jennifer to step in to a permanent role as a swing for the remainder of the run. No stranger to the stage, Jennifer graduated from London School of Musical Theatre and her theatre credits include Cover Sophie/Ali in Mamma Mia! (West End - Prince of Wales & Novello Theatre), Cover/Played Fiona in Shrek the Musical (UK Tour) and Dyanne in Million Dollar Quartet (UK and Indian Tour).
Jennifer says: "Joining the company of Knights of the Rose has been quite a whirlwind. I feel incredibly fortunate to be working with such a talented, supportive and welcoming group of people" Knights Of The Rose is a classic rock musical featuring the ultimate playlist including legendary ballads and timeless anthems from Bon Jovi, Muse, Meat Loaf, Bonnie Tyler, No Doubt and many more. Knights of the Rose runs until the 26th August at the Arts TheatreFor more information on the show visit http://knightsoftherose.co.uk/For bookings visit https://artstheatrewestend.co.uk/
