John Owen-Jones
John Stuart


Appearing in Wales and Cape Town


Wales Millennium Centre is delighted to welcome the award-winning and record-breaking musical theatre actor and recording artist back to the Welsh stage.

John Owen-Jones will be playing The Third Marquess of Bute, renowned to be the world’s richest man at this point in history.  A man who had suffered great loss but had searing ambition.

Born in Wales, John has delighted audiences all over the world with his portrayals of The Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera and as Jean Valjean in Les Misérables (most recently appearing in the show on Broadway).  John helped Wales Millennium Centre celebrate their 10th anniversary in 2015 by directing and appearing in Broadway to the Bay and is delighted to be back. 

I feel as if the role of John Stuart, Third Marquess of Bute was made for me! I am thrilled to be a part of this epic production and am very proud to represent Wales to audiences in Cape Town.
