Gay Soper

by Elizabeth Mucha

We are thrilled to welcome Gay Soper as the narrator in our new production, Art Sung- Clara Schumann. In an extraordinary career spanning over 50 years, she has appeared in theatre, operetta, pantomime and on TV. She made her professional debut at 19 playing Eliza Doolittle in “My fair lady” in a major UK tour with the legendary Zena Dare as Mrs Higgins.

You will have seen her in “Funny Girl” at the Savoy Theatre, and playing Grandma in “Adrian Mole” at the Menier Chocolate Factory. Other notable roles have included Mrs Alexander in the 7 Olivier Award-winning production of “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time”, Mme Thenardier in “Les Miserables” in the West End, and George’s mother in “Sunday in the Park with George”. And for a certain generation she is the voice of “The Flumps”, the famous children’s television series.
