Prenger hosts DreamArts gala

Published 20 March 2012

I’d Do Anything winner and current star of One Man, Two Guvnors Jodie Prenger is to host a West End gala celebrating the achievements of talented young people.

The DreamArts West End Musical Gala will be staged at the Playhouse theatre, home of Dreamboats And Petticoats, on 1 April, when around 100 children and young people aged eight to 19 will take to the stage to perform excerpts from Oliver!, Little Shop Of Horrors, Calamity Jane and Blood Brothers.

In Prenger they have a host who knows all about one of those shows, having gone through a torturous televised audition process to secure the role of Nancy in 2009’s West End production of Oliver! The Lancashire lass who won the hearts of the voting public is currently playing a less musical role in Richard Bean’s Olivier Award-nominated comedy One Man, Two Guvnors, which is keeping audiences rolling in the aisles at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

Speaking about the gala, Prenger said: “I’m thrilled to be supporting DreamArts and to share a West End stage with such a talented group of kids!”

DreamArts is a charity that works with young people from inner London to help them learn through the creative arts. DreamArts Chairman, Steve Potts, who is also the Commercial Director of Bill Kenwright Limited, explained: “By offering young people this unique opportunity to perform, write, stage manage and produce in the West End, DreamArts helps them realise their potential in a way they might otherwise not, and shine like the stars they are.”

Gala tickets cost £6 and can be requested by emailing becki@dreamarts.org.uk or bought on the day at the Playhouse theatre box office.

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.

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

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.
