Lister who played 'Carl King' in "Emmerdale for eight years and recently played 'Wild Bill Hickok' in the UK Tour of "Calamity Jane" will play 'Julian Marsh.' 42nd Street is presented in London by Michael Linnit and Michael Grade together with The Global Group of Companies for Gate Ventures with Executive Producer Johnny Hon.

Sarah's love of theater was sparked by an enthusiastic drama teacher who wouldn't take no for an answer. These days she's much more comfortable in the audience than on the stage. She's an English teacher and enjoys reading and writing when she's not teaching or at the theater.
