Lin-Manuel Miranda's song "A Very Good Day" from the musical Working will be performed at the 18th Annual WhatsOnStage Awards this year.

Original members of the cast, Liam Tamne and Siubhan Harrison, will perform the track, which Miranda once said is "one of my favourite songs I ever wrote".

The song sits in the musical alongside other pieces by Stephen Schwartz and was most recently performed onstage at Southwark Playhouse in Working which opened in June last year.

A cast recording of the London production was recently announced, with WhatsOnStage getting an exclusive first listen to one of the tracks on the album.

The performance is the latest addition to the 18th Annual WhatsOnStage Awards line-up, which will also see a performance from the cast of Bat Out of Hell, Everybody's Talking About Jamie, Tyrone Huntley (Dreamgirls), Alice Fearn (Wicked) and Janie Dee (Follies).

The concert will be hosted by Trevor Dion Nicholas and Vikki Stone, with direction from Russell Labey and musical supervision by Alex Parker. It is produced by WhatsOnStage and Stuart Piper for InterTalent.

The annual ceremony takes place at the Prince of Wales Theatre on 25 February 2018 and will see the winners of this year's WhatsOnStage Awards announced.

The WhatsOnStage Award nominees were announced in December, with Bat Out of Hell and 42nd Street leading the way with eight nominations each. In the Best Actor in a Play category, Andrew Garfield (Angels in America), Andrew Scott (Hamlet), Bryan Cranston (Network), David Tennant (Don Juan in Soho) and Martin Freeman (Labour of Love) are all recognised. Eve Best (Love in Idleness), Imelda Staunton (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), Olivia Colman (Mosquitoes), Natalie Dormer (Venus in Fur) and Tamsin Greig (Labour of Love) compete for Best Actress in a Play.
