West End stars to take part in Noel

By Esther Hayden

A number of West End stars will take part in the brand new musical Noel this December.

Noel, a musical by Eoin Colfer and Liam Bates, will by staged, concert-style, in the National Opera House from December 19 until December 23.

West End stars Stephen Carlile, Zoe Rainey and James Byng will be joined by Dublin native Mark Lambert, Wexford born Aileen Mythen and Wicklow based Avril O'Toole in this charming story that will capture the magic and meaning of Christmas.

Newcomer Hana Kelly will play central character Noël. Hana, who was selected through an open audition process, is an exciting new voice on the musical theatre scene.

Noël tells the charming story of a young girl who is distraught at the disappearance of her mother. On a journey to find her, Noël meets a motley crew of characters who want to help: Nick, a disillusioned homeless man with a secret, forms a bond with the child. In helping Noël, Nick rediscovers his belief in the magic of Christmas and in himself.

This exciting production featuring a full onstage orchestra will be directed by Ben Barnes and is produced by Emmy nominated Tenor Michael Londra and Steve Peters.
