The Rose and the Ring (2001)

This appears to be Rupert’s first professional role, but the details are a bit muddled and/or lost in the mists of time.

Rupert’s official CV has him playing Mr Smith in The Rose and the Ring at the King’s Head Theatre, directed by Lucy Skilbeck. There are other citations mentioning the King’s Head Theatre as well.

However, the production actually seems to have been at the Hen and Chickens Theatre Bar. (Unless it was staged at both, of course!)

Anyway! I’ve found the following links:

The musical is based on the ‘satirical work of fantasy fiction’ of the same name by William Makepeace Thackeray (Wikipedia), with music by Michael Jeffrey, and book and lyrics by Peter Morris.

I have to say I’m intrigued!
