Rebecca set to take Cashel by Storm

Direct from the sell-out show ‘Blood Brothers’ at the Bord Gáis, the First Lady of Musical Theatre Rebecca Storm will perform exclusively in concert for Scoil Chormaic Special School fundraiser on Sunday 30th April.

Scoil Chormaic Principal Lorraine Lowry says they are privileged that the musical legend is coming to Cashel to support Scoil Chormaic, a school whose dedication to children with special needs is recognised and embraced by the people of Cashel and its environs. Principal Lowry  says she  hopes that people from across  the county of Tipperary will support this wonderful event.

Rebecca is musical theatre’s best loved leading lady who has long been embraced by the Irish people as one of our own. After many years in The West End Rebecca loved Ireland so much she set up home in Kildare where she now lives between her busy touring schedule. She enjoys a successful and varied career accompanied by her husband and Musical Director Kenny Shearer. Rebecca was honoured to have her handprints included in the famous Gaiety Theatre Walk of Fame in Dublin.

Each role she played with passion and enthusiasm showing her true professionalism and versatility.
