With the sad closure of south London’s Bridge House Theatre, a special online Christmas concert, ‘A Bridge House Farewell – A Christmas Spectacular’, will feature favourite festive songs and readings from an amazing cast of performers – all of whom have performed at the venue over the years and giving their time free of charge.
‘A Bridge House Farewell – A Christmas Spectacular’ will premiere online on Sunday 6 December at 7pm and will then be available online until Thursday 24 December – each day allows access for 24 hours.
Tickets are available via www.bhtheatre.com and as a fundraiser the company hope people will buy tickets for each person watching.
Led by the theatre’s musical adviser Rachel Tucker, other West End and Broadway performers taking part include Marisha Wallace, George Maguire, Rachael Wooding, Danny Colligan, Rachel Izen, Sion Lloyd, Suzie Mathers, Emma Hatton, Alex Lodge, Dan Robinson, James Hume and Georgie Ashford.
They will be joined by Bridge House favourites Harry Downes, Saorla Wright, Chris Tajah, Tim Marriott, Ben Woods, Jamie Ross, Laurie Denman, Lewis Rae, Richard Albrecht… and there will be a special appearance by Father Christmas.
Tim McArthur will present the fundraising event with short interviews with Guy Retallack (Artistic Director) and Rob Harris (Artistic Producer). The evening’s musical advisor is Tom Turner.
The creative team behind the venue will keep on producing together, with Guy Retallack in charge as Artistic Director and Rob Harris as Artistic Producer.
A percentage of the income will be donated to Acting for Others.
