Atherton, Maitland, Want and More To Perform At GIGGIN4GOOD: THE BEST OF BRITISH, Nov 15

On Sunday November 15 Giggin4Good will present "Best Of British", a celebration of British Musical Theatre at the Actors' Church, Covent Garden with a stellar cast of West End vocal talent, including Pure Imagination's Julie Atherton, Carolyn Maitland (BWW: UK 2014 Understudy of the Year and current Ellen in Miss Saigon) and Olivier Award winner Lorna Want.

This will be the eighth charity concert produced by Giggin4Good since its inception in 2010 to raise much needed money to support Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital. Usually the money raised has been donated to a specific ward of the hospital. This year, as it is in the run-up to Christmas, all proceeds will go towards buying gifts for the children in the hospital.

The evening will celebrate the work of British musical theatre composers from the vintage works of Noel Coward and Ivor Novello right through to the more recent shows of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Stiles and Drewe. The concert will also feature some new British musical theatre writing, including songs from the musicals My Land's Shore and A Pebble For Aaron.

The cast (subject to change) will include:

Jemma Alexander (Wicked, Rent), Jamal Andreas (Bend It Like Beckham, Ragtime), Julie Atherton (Pure Imagination, I Love You You're Perfect Now Change, Therese Raquin, Avenue Q), Marcus Ayton (Joseph & The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat), Katie Brennan (White Feather, The Spitfire Grill), Kieran Brown (The Phantom Of The Opera, Pipe Dream, Wicked, Love Never Dies), Michael Burgen (The Pirates Of Penzance, Spamalot), Michael Colbourne (Les Miserables, A Little Night Music), Matthew Croke (West Side Story, Wicked, Chicago), Tim Driesen (Jersey Boys, Rock Of Ages, Never Forget), Lauren Ingram (Gypsy, From Here To Eternity, Joseph & The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat), Keith Jack (HMS Pinafore, Sincerely Mr Toad, Joseph & The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat), Sejal Keshwala (Bend It Like Beckham, After The Tone), Leigh Lothian (Beautiful, Selkie, The Beautiful Game), Carolyn Maitland (Miss Saigon, Singing In The Rain, From Here to Eternity, Kiss Me Kate), Shaun McCourt (Warhorse, Joseph & The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat), Ian Mclarnon (Sunday in The Park With George, Forever Plaid, Sweeney Todd, Les Miserables), Kayleigh McKnight (Bend It Like Beckham, The Mikado, The Dreaming), Sarah McNicholas (Carrie, Evita, Whistle Down The Wind), Gary Mitchinson (Warhorse, The Witches Of Eastwick, The Fix), Michael Riseley (Les Miserables), Laura Tebbutt (Love Me Tender, Forbidden Broadway, The Wizard Of Oz), Lowri Walton (Warhorse) Lorna Want (Beautiful, Dreamboats And Petticoats, The Fantasticks, Romeo And Juliet), Scarlet Wilderink (Warhorse), Gary Wood (Infidel the Musical, A Chorus Line).
