The new project will see West End stars performing to help raise funds for those in the arts who are in difficulties due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Taking place on Shakespeare Day on the 23rd April, it has been announced that the funds raised from All the Web’s A Stage will go towards Acting for Others and Help Musicians as well as The Golsoncott Foundation.
Further performers have also been announced to take part in the event, streaming live throughout the day. Joining the previously announced Danny Mac, Tom Milner, Jodie Prenger and La Voix will be: Gemma Barnett, Tom Brace, Joanne Clifton, Oscar Conlon-Morrey, Evangeline Dickson, Rebecca Gilliland, David Hunter, Caroline Kay, Evie Rose Lane, Luke McCall, James McDermott, Tamaryn Payne, Robert Rhodes, Oliver Savile, Cleve September, Noah Thomas, Dylan Turner, Marisha Wallace, Daisy Wood-Davies, Luke Wright, Al and Roddy and Vocal Xtr3me. The full line up and programme will be announced shortly.
Talking about the news, Sofi Berenger, co-producer of All the Web’s a Stage, said today, “While we’ve welcomed the government’s support for the self-employed and the arts in this emergency, it’s clear that many of our industry colleagues will not be eligible for this support. And as many have highlighted, the performing arts are going to take sometime to recover from this extended period of closure. The response to All the Web’s a Stage has been completely overwhelming and we couldn’t be more thankful to those in our industry coming together to raise funds to support each other in this time of need.”
