‘Spotlight on the Future’ drive-in concert to celebrate 2020 graduates
Famous faces and theatre newcomers will perform together at a one-off concert.
Following the series of musical theatre drive-in concerts earlier this year, a celebratory concert to champion recent graduates has been announced. ‘Spotlight on the Future’ will see West End stars join budding artists at the Drive In London on 6 December.
Spotlight on the Future began as an online series, created by Louis Rayneau. Speaking of the live concert, he said: “I couldn't be more grateful for all the wonderful support Spotlight On The Future has received so far. Watching it grow from a 3am idea to a web duet series on YouTube to a streamed concert to takeovers at Circa Live Lounge to now!”
The line-up of West End performers includes Joanne Clifton, Steph Parry, Genevieve Nicole, Hannah Grace Lawson, Jade Davies, Michael Pickering, Luke Street, Carl Man, Claudia Kariuki, Lucinda Lawrence, Nicholas Mclean, Jason Leight Winter and Amy Matthews.
Recent graduates starring in the concert include Andrew Ewart, Jodi Bird, Alice Croft, Sam Walter, Cassie McCluskey, Georgia Lennon, Katie Burton, Rosemary Bashford, Aoife Kenny, Millie Cranston, Amelia Atherton, Freya Humberstone, Flynn Starrs, Gabbie Love and Ru Fisher.
Heathers’ Charlotte Jaconelli and Collabro’s Michael Auger will host the concert, with monies raised supporting Make A Wish Foundation, Acting For Others, Stop Hate UK and Lebanon Red Cross.
Spotlight on the Future is at Troubadour Meridian Water on 6 December.
