A showcase of songs entitled “A Night of Magic at the Musicals” presented by Aindre Reece-Sheerin, will take place at St James’ Concert Hall next month in aid of Home-Start Guernsey.
Starring Kim Spaargaren, this charity fundraising event will take place on Friday 4 October at 7 p.m. and will also feature a cast of 14 soloists as well as support from the Karen Dempsey School of Dance.
The production has benefitted from a number of donations including Legis, Butterfield, Saffery Champness, Ravenscroft and others.
Mr Reece-Sheerin said: “I am honoured that we have had support from a number of businesses which will ensure that as much money as possible goes to Home-Start Guernsey.”
The show features some of the island’s best loved musicians including Darren Alderton, Lydia Pugh, Laura Simpson and Finley Evans.
Musical direction is under the baton of the recently retired Marilyn Pugh and Gadoc’s Lisa Johnston is staging the production.
Some of the performances included in the billing are from Blood Brothers, Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar and Wicked as well as a grand finale piece from Les Miserables.
Kim Spaargaren will be starring on the evening as lead soloist taking to the stage to perform “Tell Me It’s Not True” from Blood Brothers, “Tell Me On a Sunday” from the show of the same name and “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” from Jesus Christ Superstar among others.
Mr Reece-Sheerin said: “We will also have a special guest performing, who, at just seven years old, will be entertaining the audience with a wonderful song and dance routine.”
The artists will be accompanied by a full local orchestra with Mark Guillou on sound and lighting.
All proceeds for the event will go to Home-Start. For five years the charity, supported by Ana Leaf foundation, has worked in Guernsey to help families going through stressful times. Tickets for the gala evening are available from St James Box Office by calling 711361 or online at www.guernseytickets.gg. Car parking will also be available at Elizabeth College during the performance.
