Alice Fearn, best known for her roles in Come From Away and Wicked, has announced that she will be hosting a brand new weekly online show, Intermission, and will joined by a host of West End stars.

Streaming live from Fearn’s garden, the socially distanced live concerts will be directed by Kirk Jameson with music from Nick Barstow and will feature performances and interviews from musical theatre stars alongside recent graduates.

The first episode will be streamed on 17th July with guests including Shan Ako who plays Eponine in Les Misérables and Sam Tutty who plays the titular role in Dear Evan Hansen.

Fearn said: “In a time where we can’t be doing what we love, I wanted to create a space where we could keep theatre alive. Intermissions is a live gig with a difference raising money for four important causes and featuring both West End stars and new graduates who are coming out into an industry that is currently quiet.

“I’ll be chatting to the guests and asking them how the lockdown experience has been, we’ll have live performances and so much more. The best part? It’s all from the comfort of my garden.

“Theatre is something that we all feel so strongly/passionately about so I’m thrilled we can make this work and can’t wait to get started on 17 July.”

Stay tuned for more guest announcements in the coming weeks and in the meantime, set your alarms as tickets will be available to buy online from 10am on 1 July. Tickets will cost £9 with £1 going to a different charity each week, starting with Acting For Others.
