The Other Palace will host a star-studded charity concert on Easter Sunday (16 April) to raise funds for male cancer charity Orchid.
A host of West End favourites have been enlisted by The Other Palace’s artistic director Paul Taylor-Mills to take part in The Musical Marathon, a week before Taylor-Mills runs the London Marathon.
Hosted by Caroline Flack and featuring a song for every full mile of the 26.2 mile marathon route, the one-off event will feature performances from Louise Dearman, Tyrone Huntley, Zizi Strallen, Olivier Savile, Liam Doyle, Nathan Amzi, Kim Criswell, Liam Tamne, Christina Modesto, Emma Kingston, Lockie Chapman, Shaun McCourt and Idriss Kargbo.
Orchid is the UK’s leading charity working on behalf of anyone affected by male cancer. Established in 1996 by testicular cancer patient, Colin Osborne MBE and the oncologist who saved his life, Professor Tim Oliver, Orchid exists to save men’s lives from male cancer through a range of support services, education and awareness campaigns and a pioneering research programme.
Formerly the St James Theatre, The Other Palace is the newest addition to The Really Useful Theatres Group. The venue made its debut as a new home for musical theatre with the first major London production of Michael John LaChiusa’s The Wild Party which finished its run on 1 April.
