Phantom of the Opera stars to perform for Children in Need
Date Posted: 19/11/10
Stars from the Phantom of the Opera musical will appear on the BBC's Children in Need show tonight to help raise money for deserving charities.
Andrew Lloyd Webber's play is one of the most popular and successful in West End history, and an exclusive performance will be screened between midnight and 01:00GMT on Saturday.
It comes as the production prepares for its seasonal dates at the capital's Her Majesty's Theatre, which are ideal for those planning festive London breaks.
Phantom of the Opera will join the likes of Formula One stars Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, Westlife, the Hairy Bikers and Kylie Minogue on the programme.
Furthermore, JLS will perform the official Children in Need single, while the cast of EastEnders and Coronation Street will unite for the first time ever, swapping the cobbled streets of Weatherfield for Albert Square.
Take That will sing their new single The Flood along with Never Forget, while theatre star John Barrowman will present a musical fundraiser from Glasgow.
Earlier this week, the cast of Jersey Boys took time out to perform with Pudsey Bear in a fundraising effort for Children in Need.
