THE SCARBOROUGH Spa Orchestra’s hugely popular take on modern musicals finds itself ‘on tour’ to Queen Street Methodist Church on Thursday, July 13.

The Orchestra will be joined by star singers Michelle Todd and Owen Webb as they perform ‘A Night In The West End’

Michelle began her singing career as a member of the renowned Cantamus choir in north Nottinghamshire.

After further training, she progressed to roles in major West End shows, such as Follies with Diana Rigg and Julia McKenzie, and The Sound of Music with Petula Clark.

Her home is now in Canada where she is much in demand in the theatre and on the concert platform.

Michelle’s annual visits back to the UK are very busy times, but she always makes sure she can include a visit to Scarborough where she enjoys the professionalism of the Spa Orchestra, and the warmth and friendliness of the Spa audience.

Michelle hopes very much that this audience will be willing to make the short journey across town to Queen Street.

Owen Webb’s career has taken him around the world via the operatic route, and he is now a permanent and highly respected member of the Welsh National Opera company.

Nevertheless, his cross-over range is very wide, taking in the old musical comedies, the great 20th century shows by Rodgers and Hammerstein, and the recent and current modern West End musicals.

The show at Queen Street will also feature the chorus of the York Musical Theatre Company who will be adding some exciting sounds of their own.

The programme promises some great songs from A Little Night Music and other shows by Stephen Sondheim, Phantom of the Opera favourites, a thrilling performance of Maybe This Time from Cabaret, and items from two fantastic shows by Schonberg and Boulbil: Miss Saigon and Les Misérables.

Tickets for all Scarborough Spa Orchestra performances are now on sale and are available from The Spa Box Office on 01723 821888, via or on the door.
