Kerry Ellis has signed to new radio station ENCORE RADIO to present her own weekly show.
The West End and Broadway actress will be heard each Saturday afternoon playing songs from the theatres and talking to invited guests.
Kerry originated the role of Meat in Queen’s We Will Rock You and starred as Nancy in Oliver! at Drury Lane, Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady, Ellen in Miss Saigon, Maureen in RENT and Fantine in Les Miserables.
“I am so excited to announce this,” said Kerry. “It’s going to be such a buzz to play three hours of my favourite musical theatre songs every Saturday afternoon and I’ll also be talking to some very special West End guests. When I was growing up, I listened to Barbra Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Celine Dione and Michael Ball, which we both giggle about now when we do concerts together!
But as well as playing tracks from my own stage heroes I’ll be playing some less well know musical theatre gems. If you love musicals as much as I do then you won’t want to miss a show – we are going to have so much fun every week!”
Head of Content Jamie Crick, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Kerry, the First Lady of the West End, to the ENCORE RADIO family. With Kerry on air every Saturday between 1pm and 3pm and “Hollyoaks”, Blue and West End star Duncan James hosting his own show on Sundays between 10am and 1pm, ENCORE RADIO is unmissable. Make sure you make a date every week with the biggest stars of the West End.”
