The no. 1 musical theatre fans event in London will return next October with even a richer offer than last year. Featuring exclusive performances, meets and greets, backstage demonstrations and much more, the festival will also welcome stars from the big screen, as well as some of the most prestigious names in the West End.
Musical fans come one, come all. The Musical Con is shining bright – especially now that its offer is getting more and more filled with the most exciting opportunities any stage-manic could only dream of. Today, the organizers of the most anticipated theatre gathering of the year have confirmed who will be joining the crusade and manning the barricades, this time also including colleagues from the big screen!
“Musical Con is back and this year is going to be even bigger and better”, says producer Creative Producer Shanay Holmes. “This is the place where we belong. This is for the fans”. Surely more than a few will be delighted to know all of the treats from last year, which drew over 10,000 visitors, will return – those encompassing a jam-packed programme of one-of-a-kind performances and interviews on the Main Stage, a Backstage Theatre for talks and panels, Stage Door meet and greets with photo and signing opportunities, as well as a vast selection of workshops and masterclasses where amateurs and theatre lovers in general can learn from the pros.
As for the event’s invited stars, some of the names who will be dropping by are Aimee Atkinson, Trevor Dion Nicholas, Sophie Evans, Alice Fearn, Ben Forster, Shanay Holmes, Lucie Jones, Jon Robyns, Jodie Steele, Miriam Teak Lee & Layton Williams, apart from the film adaptation Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical’s Alisha Weir (Matilda) and Meesha Garbett (Red Beret Girl). In addition, the line up will feature Michael Ahomka-Lindsay, Bronte Barbe, Courtney Bowman, Tom Francis, Victoria Hamilton-Barritt, Josh Piterman and Michael Xavier, among many others.
