A Night At The Musicals on Sunday 18 July is part of the Everyman Theatre Summer Festival programme of events, and is in aid of The Elizabeth Evans Trust.

The trust, formed following the death of theatrical director and youth opera opatron Elizabeth Evans, awards scholarships to young people who wish to pursue a professional career in the performing arts.

Stars lined up for the open-air concert include Evans and another former contestant of a BBC One show, Sarah Lark. Cardiff-born Lark took part in I'd Do Anything in 2008, in Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber's quest to find a Nancy for his production of Oliver!

She has most recently starred in Cameron Mackintosh's revival production of Oliver! at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London as part of the ensemble.

Carmarthen-born classical star Mark Evans is also set to appear, along with Christopher Jacobsen and Karen Evans.
