Headley leads 1000 stars

Published 1 February 2013

The leading ladies of hit new musical The Bodyguard, Heather Headley and Debbie Kurup, will add their estimable vocal tones to The Night Of 1000 Stars, which will be staged at the Royal Albert Hall on 5 May.

Headley and Kurup join a line-up that includes former Chicago performers Denise Van Outen and Tiffany Graves, Wicked‘s Katie Rowley Jones, Kiss Me, Kate leading man Alex Bourne and Broadway star Kristen Beth Williams, who is soon to join the cast of West End hit Top Hat, in the evening of musical celebration held in aid of the Caron Keating Foundation.

The theme for this year’s Night Of 1000 Stars, which will also feature London theatre’s Ian Knauer, Marcus Lovett, Shona Lindsay and Tabitha Webb, is the work of US producer and director Hal Prince, so audiences can expect excerpts from shows including The Phantom Of The Opera, Evita, Fiddler On The Roof, Sweeney Todd, Cabaret and more.

Speaking about the support given by the evening of musical entertainment, Gloria Hunniford, mother of TV presenter Caron Keating who lost her life to cancer, said: “We receive no government support and our foundation, in the name of our gorgeous Caron, is entirely reliant on generous people coming together to raise funds and awareness of the scourge of cancer. We are so grateful to everyone for supporting the Caron Keating Foundation. Thank you all.”

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
