All Star Musicals 2021 line up
Presenter Fern Britton said: “A chance to dress up and dance with a full orchestra! What a Christmas present!”
Actor Ben Miller said: “I have new respect for musicals! After weeks of training I am nowhere near ready. In fact, I don’t know what I was thinking.”
Former-MP and broadcaster Gyles Brandeth said: “I can’t sing and I can’t dance, but I can dream! And this is a dream come true – being in a number in my favourite musical, My Fair Lady.”
Presenter Anita Rani said: “What better time to come together to perform some show stopping musical hits on stage. It’s a festive treat that’s guaranteed to bring some sparkle to everyone’s living rooms this Christmas.”
Actress Catherine Tyldesley said: “I’m a huge musical theatre fan- so the chance to sing a song from the first musical I fell in love with is a dream come true. Really excited about the tuition too – a great chance to learn from the best”
Sports presenter Radzi Chinyanganya said: “I cannot believe that I’ll be performing in front of the nation doing something that honestly terrifies and excites me in equal measure. I’m starting as a day one, hour one beginner, so I’m really going to be testing the skills of the fantastic musical coaches. I can’t really sing, I don’t normally dance, so what could possibly go wrong?!”
The celebs will be supported by a full West End ensemble as they perform numbers from a range of famous musicals, both contemporary and traditional including; Cats, Moana and The Rocky Horror Show
Meanwhile there will be a special performance from one of the West End’s biggest shows, plus an exclusive performance by Samantha Barks, who plays Elsa in the West End, of Into The Unknown from Frozen 2.
