and live on Freeview channel 276
This year, the musical extravaganza promises even more enchanting performances, hitting new venues across the province and celebrating the very best of musical theatre with an extra special singing workshop thrown in for good measure.
Peter Corry, who lives in Hillsborough and is the driving force behind this musical spectacle, expressed his excitement for bringing the show back.
"This show is a real celebration of all the best songs in musical theatre, the audience can expect everything from uplifting toe tappers to emotional and heartfelt songs, but I can guarantee that they will know and love them all.” he said.
Peter will be joined on stage by talented artists, including Lisburn man Nik Parks, Sean O’Neill, Jay Hutchinson, Seanna Hutchinson, Anna Tennyson, and Ciara Power who will sweep the audience away with their stunning performances and beautiful music.
“After the fantastic response to the show last year we're excited to take it to some new locations; the Portico of Ards in Portaferry, The Braid in Ballymena and four shows at the MAC in Belfast,” continued Peter.
“The Portico is an absolutely stunning heritage arts centre which has been beautifully restored as an exciting venue for events. I’m also really looking forward to bringing a new element to the show at this venue as we’ll be hosting a singing masterclass which is open to anyone who’d like to come along and work with myself and some of the cast of the show in order to develop their singing skills."
The West End star will deliver a two-hour singing workshop for anyone of any ability to come along and get some tips on how to improve their performance. If you love to sing then this is really the event for you.
