Last but by no means least in our line-up announcements, we're delighted to tell you that four-time Whatsonstage.com Awards co-host and former Best Actress in a Musical winner (for Legally Blonde) Sheridan Smith will return this year to make a special performance at the 2013 Awards Concert, which takes place at the West End's Palace Theatre this Sunday (17 February) - and this time she's singing!
Sheridan Smith in Hedda Gabler & co-hosting the 2012 Awards
The Concert - an unmissable night with lots of glitz, glamour and fun - sees the announcement of all 27 Whatsonstage.com Awards which have been voted for by the theatregoing public. Hosted this year by actor-comedians Rufus Hound and Mel Giedroyc, there will also be a range of surprise appearances, including a fitting tribute to some of the incredible theatrical events of 2012.
As with December's Launch Party, the Concert is held in aid of this year's adopted charity, InterAct (part of Stagecoach Charitable Trust), which provides disabled and disadvantaged children and young people with real opportunities to develop valuable skills for life through drama, movement and music workshops.
The Awards Concert is directed and devised by Russell Labey, with sound by Ben Harrison, lighting by Mike Robertson, choreography by Lizzi Gee and musical supervision and orchestrations by Tom Deering. It's produced by Stuart Piper and Jason Haigh-Ellery on behalf of Whatsonstage.com, with general management by Peter Huntley and production management by Chris Fisher.
