Summer Strallen, Anton du Beke and Dianne Pilkington will lead a one-off charity cabaret at the Leicester Square Theatre next month in aid of the Tuloy Foundation in Manila.

The evening, titled The Philippine Dream, will also feature Miss Saigon cast members including Hugh Maynard and Rachel Ann Go, and will be held on 17 August.

The cast is completed by Daniel Buckley (The Book of Mormon, Loserville), Charlotte Riby (Billy Elliot, Hairspray), Alicia Beck (Cats), Tyrone Huntley (The Book of Mormon, Memphis), Harry Francis (A Chorus Line, Edward Scissorhands), Lady Imelda (Glam Jam) and vintage trio The Dolly Girls.

Proceeds from the night will go toward the building of a new Arts Centre at the Tuloy Foundation, a charity which cares for poor and abandoned children in Manila. The Foundation is keen to introduce performance into the schooling it provides as "it has such a positive effect on many of the young people, bringing confidence, self discovery, pride and joy into their daily lives".

The concert is produced by Katy Osborne, a West End performer who has experience of volunteering in Manila, in association with Harry Francis.
