Joan of Arc is played by Sarah Coope who is both a talented singer and actor. Sarah developed her skills while at Cambridge and has performed at the National Portrait Gallery in a Shakespeare medley, is the lead singer with a jazz/acoustic band and has starred in 'The Hot Mikado' (Katisha), 'Merrily We Roll Along' (Beth) and 'Les Liaisons Dangereuses' (Merteuil).

Sarah enjoyed being Joan having previously played a number of strong women. "Joan of Arc is perhaps the ultimate female heroine!"


Francis Forbes-Edwards plays Alencon, the leading male role. Classically trained as a Baritone, Flautist and Pianist, Francis has played lead roles in several musicals, including 'Fame', 'Cabaret' and 'Crazy For You'.
