In honour of World Theatre Day, the 21st Annual WhatsOnStage Awards will be made available to watch again for four times only.
After being livestreamed on Sunday 14 March, the celebration will be available for encore streaming on 27 and 28 March at 3pm and 7pm on both dates. Tickets are available via stream.theatre for £15 only.
Hosted and presented by Jodie Prenger, Tom Read Wilson, Amy Hart and Oscar Conlon-Morrey, the unique ceremony – recorded at The Turbine Theatre – celebrated theatre and its audiences, with musical theatre stars from across the West End representing shows that were cut short in 2020 or due to open this year.
With theatres being closed since March 2020, this year’s Annual WhatsOnStage Awards featured awards for Angels – public-nominated people who were honoured for their love and support during the pandemic.
The star-studded event included Cedric Neal performing “Gotta Start Somewhere” from Back to the Future the Musical, Lizzie Bea performing “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from Carousel, Ivano Turco performing “Only You, Lonely You” from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new musical Cinderella, Blake Patrick Anderson, Cleve September, Danielle Fiamanya, Frances Mayli, Grace Mouat, Jodie Steele, Jordan Luke Gage, Layton Williams, Matt Croke, Millie O’Connell and Sophie Isaacs performing “Let The Sunshine In” from Hair, Siubhan Harrison performing “Head Over Feet” from Jagged Little Pill, Emma Kingston performing “I Can Do Better Than That” from The Last Five Years, Danielle Fiamanya and Matt Croke performing “Crazy Rolling” from Moulin Rouge!, Alexia Khadime and Christine Allado performing “When You Believe” from The Prince of Egypt, Dom Hartley-Harris and Alex Thomas-Smith performing “I’ll Cover You” from Rent and Jamie Muscato performing “Something’s Coming” from West Side Story.
21 Angels were announced during the ceremony, receiving a complimentary night at the theatre once live performances return. From midwives to supermarket staff, and Nightingale volunteers to amateur dramatic managers, these people have been a beacon of hope and light throughout the pandemic.
Those who received an award were David Ashford, Elaine and Graeme Blackmore, Dave Chalfin, Steph Canning, Lynn Darcy, Lucie Devine, Amanda Dunford, Denis Fuller, Kate Golledge, Andrea Grey, Leontine Hass, Philip Joel, Charlie Kristensen, Yvette McDonnald, Scarlett Maltman, Charlie Morrison, Alun and Esther Williams, Corrine Priest, Kristie Winsen, Alex Young, Rita Zeta-Jones (aka Jessica Boshier).
