After five musical episodes in 2020 celebrating the best of West End theatre, The Theatre Channel returns with a new series. Episode 6, titled Showstoppers will be available to watch from 30 April, with an exclusive video from Antonio Banderas.

Producer Adam Blanshay comments on the new season by saying: "As the pandemic and theatre closures have extended far beyond what anyone initially imagined... [we're] giving fresh opportunity to a remarkable new group of performers to finish the series with us."

Performers taking part in the upcoming episode include Pretty Woman's Danny Mac, singing "Moving Too Fast" from The Last Five Years. Kerry Ellis will sing "Always Starting Over" from If/Then, with Layton Williams performing "Hold Me In Your Heart" from Kinky Boots.

Sisters Amber Davies and Jade Davies will perform "Who Will Love Me As I Am" and "I Will Never Leave You" from Side Show. Amber will star in Bring It On later this year, while Jade has previously appeared in The Phantom of the Opera.

Jack Malin & The New Café Five will give a rendition of "There's No Business Like Show Business" from Annie Get Your Gun. The New Cafe Five is made up of Anthony Starr, Danny Becker, Kayleigh Thadani, M-Jae Cleopatra Isaac and Vicki Lee Taylor.

Katie Deacon will perform "Music And The Mirror" from A Chorus Line, with a track provided by Antonio Banderas' Spanish revival of A Chorus Line from Teatro del Soho. At the end of the episode, Banderas will share his knowledge of A Chorus Line in an exclusive interview.
