Royal Albert Hall
LMTO is thrilled to be returning to the Royal Albert Hall this summer for Alpha’s The Best of the West End, taking place on Wednesday 21 July at 7:30pm.
Featuring songs from West Side Story, Wicked, Les Misérables, Chicago, Hairspray and more, the night promises to be a true celebration of musical theatre in one of the UK’s most iconic venues.
Presented by Olivier Award-winner Ruthie Henshall, the concert will feature the 40-piece London Musical Theatre Orchestra, playing some of the world’s greatest musical hits. We will be joined on stage by a spectacular cast of West End stars, including John Owen-Jones, Kerry Ellis, Mica Paris, Anna-Jane Casey, Matt Henry MBE, Sophie Evans, Ben Forster, Mazz Murray, Gina Murray, Layton Williams, Lauren Samuels, Friederike Krum and Matthew Croke. The choir will feature students from Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts and MX Masterclass.
The creative team includes Creative Director Ben Forster (Phantom of the Opera, Elf, Jesus Christ Superstar), legendary West End Choreographer Stephen Mear CBE (Mary Poppins, Hello Dolly!, Gypsy – each of which earned him an Olivier Award nomination), award-winning Lighting Designer Tim Lutkin (Back to the Future, Fiddler on the Roof, Chimerica) and Musical Director Dr Stuart Morley (Wicked, We Will Rock You, Elf).
A minimum of £5 per ticket will be donated by Alpha Club to Acting for Others, an organisation made up of 14 charities that offer financial and emotional support to theatre workers in need.
