Kylie Minogue has paid a surprise visit to a Sri Lankan theatre troupe formed in the aftermath of the tsunami - and delighted its young cast by riding
Aussie pop star Kylie Minogue made a surprise visit to a Sri Lankan theater troupe formed by Toby Gough, an English director and producer, in the aftermath of the tsunami. The singer actually is patron and sponsor of the Children of the Sea theater group, but the treatment she had to have due to breast cancer surgery has prevented her from seeing them.
Happy to meet the youngsters, Minogue said "Their triumph through adversity is inspiring". Moreover, during the visit Minogue also took a ride with four youngsters on an elephant. "Everyone has been so welcoming. I do hope to return one day soon", so the singer added.
