The Palace Theatre will host a major West End concert next month in aid of charity.
The concert will run for five performances over three days on November 13th, 14th and 15th and will feature a collection of cast performances from long running shows in the West End.
Those already confirmed to be performing include &Juliet, Come From Away, Dear Evan Hansen, Everybody's Talking About Jamie, Mamma Mia!, The Prince of Egypt, Six, TINA and Wicked. More shows are expected to join the lineup in the coming weeks.
The concert will be directed by Luke Sheppard and Anna Fox with Soiutra Gilmour providing the set design. It is produced by Theatre Support Fund and Take Two Theatricals with all profits going to Acting For Others and The Fleabag Support Fund.
The Palace is usually home to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. It is one of the six Nimax theatres re-opening in the coming weeks with social distancing in place, though the play will not be re-opening until 2021.
Nimax Chief Executive Nica Burns said "We are delighted to be hosting these special concerts: The Show Must Go On Live! at the Palace Theatre where all profits will be going to theatre charities. It warms the heart to see all these fantastic West End shows coming together to benefit our community. A big thank you to everyone taking part on stage and off and a special shout out to the producers, The Theatre Support Fund+ and Take Two Theatricals for making it happen. Please rush to buy tickets and help out whilst enjoying a wonderful, socially distanced evening!"
