A spectacular line-up of stars from West End shows, including the casts of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Disney’s The Lion King and Dreamgirls, will perform at a gala event next month, in celebration of Mousetrap Theatre Projects’ 21st anniversary.

The show will also feature performances from the casts of Mamma Mia!, Mischief Theatre (the brains behind The Play That Goes Wrong and The Comedy About A Bank Robbery), as well as guest performers David Suchet, Patricia Hodge, Michael Xavier, Samantha Spiro, Beau Dermott, Tyrone Huntley, and Rachel Tucker.

Christopher Biggins and Harriet Thorpe will host the charity’s Gala, which will take place at the Prince of Wales Theatre on Sunday 18 March from 7.30pm.

Janie Dee and Clive Rowe will then perform at the after-show party at the Café de Paris, where a silent auction will be held;  items will be available to bid on from 5 March on the gala’s website.

Mousetrap Theatre Projects is a theatre education charity dedicated to bringing the magic of theatre into the lives of disadvantaged young people and young people with special needs. In the last 21 years, nearly 200,000 disadvantaged children and young people have taken part in projects ran by Mousetrap Theatre Projects.

The charity has worked with 76% of mainstream state secondary schools in and 80% of secondary special schools in London. 10,000 families on low-incomes or in other challenging circumstances have participated in its Family First Nights theatregoing programme which will celebrate a 20th anniversary this summer.

The remit of the charity is to open the magical world of theatre to young people who would otherwise not have access to it.

Tickets to the 21st anniversary gala event can be purchased through the Delfont Macinktosh website.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

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 be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.
