The show will be performed at London’s St Paul’s Church (also known as The Actors’ Church) and premiere online for free on the Donmar’s YouTube channel on Wednesday 16 December, 7.30pm.
The concert will be captioned, and an audio introduction will be available in partnership with Vocaleyes.
This hour-long concert of musical numbers, sketches and seasonal poetry will star Imelda Staunton, Jim Carter, Minnie Driver, Giles Terera, Rosalie Craig and Sharon Rose.
Further artists will be announced in the coming weeks, and there will even be a few surprise special guests joining in the merriment digitally from their own living rooms.
Audiences will be invited to donate if they are able to. Proceeds from the concert will directly support the Donmar’s work on and off stage. The Donmar also believes it is vital to support its local community and will therefore redistribute 15% of all donations received to the Connection at St Martin’s, which during the COVID-19 crisis has supported thousands of homeless people across London with the provision of over 21,000 hot meals, as well as accommodation, access to medical support and therapy.
