Other Backstage Theatre talks and panels include costume with 'Behind The Seams', choreography with 'Moving A Musical', 'Vocal Health' with the West End's leading vocal team, 'Destigmatising Mental Health on the West End', 'Why Representation Matters In All Area of Theatre', 'The Alternate and Swing Superstars of the West End', 'Black Lives Matter West End' and 'LGBTQIA+ On The West End', all with cast and creatives from West End shows.

There were a number of show previews where fans got a sneak peek of forthcoming musicals at various stages of their production, including Cinderella (Hope Mill Theatre) featuring Grace Mouat; new musical Super You featuring Aimie Atkinson; and Footballers Wives featuring Alice Fearn. Special Performances with Q&As included 'Sondheim and Me' with Jenna Russell and new music from musical theatre supergroup SVN; as well as epic opening and closing ceremonies featuring Musical Con Ambassadors Alice Fearn, Trevor Dion Nicholas, Aimie Atkinson, Ben Forster, Shanay Holmes and Layton Williams.

Review: MY SONS A QUEER, (BUT WHAT CAN YOU DO?), Ambassadors Theatre Photo
There is beauty in the simplicity of this concept. My Son's A Queer (But What Can You Do?) is a tale about growing up. More specifically, the 'ups and downs of raising a queer child.' It is also clearly a production made for and by generations of theatre kids, the kind who prefer to stay in the dress-up section of the school (especially if it gets them out of a football match).
