West End sings

On Sunday 19 November a touch of stardust will fall on Bridgnorth as professional West End stars join with a choir of 200 local singers at a one-of-a-kind concert to be performed at St Leonard’s Church. The huge cast will be accompanied by musicians from the Birmingham Philharmonic – all to raise funds for six-year-old Rupert Beckett who has neuroblastoma.

“We’re delighted to be able to put this event on which gives local enthusiasts the chance to perform alongside the likes of Rob Houchen and Jeremy Secomb who played Marius and Javert respectively in London’s ‘Les Misérables’,” said WW! editor Sally Themans, who is organising the evening. “Anyone can come and sing – they don’t need to be part of a choir. We’re indebted to Alfonso Casado, musical supervisor of ‘Les Mis’, who will be conducting, and Chris and Lucy Key of Key Theatre Academy for persuading their friends from the world of showbiz to donate their time and services for free. We’ll be performing songs from shows including ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ , ‘Beauty and the Beast’, ‘Mary Poppins’ and of course ‘Les Mis’. There will also be a VIP event sponsored by Tanners and the Vintage Chef beforehand.”
