Produced by Bookend Productions, a new not-for-profit theatrical production company founded in January 2021 by Rebecca Gilliland, which provides a platform for performers who have been given no opportunities to perform in public since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Its first project – a remotely recorded version of ‘The Bells of Notre Dame’ – involved more than 100 performers from the UK and has been viewed more than 500k times on YouTube, and received public praise from Disney Veteran, Alan Menken.
Rebecca Gilliland said: “Help Musicians UK have been a lifeline for so many performers in these last 18 months – and for many years before the COVID pandemic hit – so I’m thrilled we’re going to be able to raise funds for them by celebrating the music from these, films that that introduced so many of us to musicals.”
Disney…ish will take place at the Union Theatre on 16th August. Tickets can be be booked at http://www.uniontheatre.biz/disney-ish.html
The Concert will be available to stream online at a later date.
