West End Performers Headline Fundraiser Concert DISNEY...ISH At The Union Theatre

Performers from Wicked, Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables and Six are coming together to take part in a fundraising concert for Help Musicians UK at the Union Theatre in Southwark.

"Disney...ish" will feature songs from lesser-known animated films like 'Thumbelina', 'The Swan Princess', and 'Quest for Camelot', and from production houses such as Disney, Don Bluth, and Dreamworks.
It will feature a mixture of West End performers and new graduates, and is being produced by Bookend Productions, which was founded by Wicked actress Rebecca Gilliland earlier this year to give artists a chance to perform after the COVID-19 pandemic shut down theatres across the world.

Rebecca Gilliland said: "Help Musicians UK have been a lifeline for so many performers in these last 18 months - and for many years before the COVID pandemic hit - so I'm thrilled we're going to be able to raise funds for them by celebrating the music from these, films that that introduced so many of us to musicals.

"Everyone jumped at the chance to be involved when I suggested it. I'm delighted we've been able to get so many West Enders to take part, but also that we've been able to give new graduates a chance to perform, as they've had the unluckiest start in the industry they could have possibly had."

"Disney...ish" takes place at the Union Theatre on August 16th. In-person tickets cost £18, Concessions £16. Tickets can be be booked here:
The Concert will be available to stream online at a later date.
