Mischief Theatre’s hit heist show The Comedy About A Bank Robbery will stage a gala performance for BBC Radio 2’s annual theatre fundraiser in aid of BBC Children In Need.
The fast-paced production, which sees a group of misfit criminals attempt to steal a precious diamond with gravity-defying stunts, slapstick-laden comedy and disastrous results, opened at the Criterion Theatre earlier this year to critical acclaim, and will have Radio 2 presenters and Pudsey Bear himself in attendance on the evening of Thursday 27 October.
Funds raised from the sale of tickets on the evening, as well as through bucket collections, will be put towards BBC Children In Need to help change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in communities across the UK.
VIP tickets for the evening will also be on sale, which include an invitation to a pre-show drinks reception hosted by Radio 2 presenters at the luxurious Le Miridien Hotel, Piccadilly.
Tickets for the Children In Need Gala performance can be purchased through the show’s website.
This Christmas, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, which is booking until April 2017, forms the third of three Mischief Theatre comedies running concurrently in the West End, with the Olivier Award-winning The Play That Goes Wrong playing at the Duchess Theatre and the acclaimed Peter Pan Goes Wrong, which is also due to be broadcast by BBC1 over the festive period, returning to the Apollo Theatre from 21 October.
