‘Kit’ Christopher J Orton OM94-01 will star as Tom Jones in a new musical story of his life.
Kit will tour the UK with the musical, which kicks off with shows at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff this week from March 7 to 12.
While at Monmouth School, Kit took part in productions at the school. Since he left, the school has built the Blake Theatre.
He said: “It was literally a year after I left that I drove past and saw the theatre. It’s really good to see that drama and performing arts have better facilities at the school now though.”
