Stage Musicals

 In the course of her varied career, with her glorious singing voice, it is perhaps small wonder that Louise Gold has been in many stage musicals. Below the webmaster has listed as many as they know about, and tried to list them in chronological order. Beneath this listing can be found those for which the webmaster does not know the dates. If anyone does know, even the year, do email the webmaster.
