Stars from across the Broadway and West End community are pledging their support for young people in a new arts-based fundraiser and conversation starter. Theatre Camp: LIVE! free daily live conversations with global stars from the arts proudly supporting LGBTQ and vulnerable young people.
Using the power of social media, the often twice-daily talks will see the host of performers and creatives discussing their career highlights, challenges during isolation, and why it’s important we all support each other during the challenging times as COVID-19 pauses the arts.
The first conversations began on Monday, 27 April 2020, with Broadway leading lady and two-time Tony nominee, Laura Osnes, and Glee and now Elphaba in Wicked on Broadway, Lindsay Heather Pearce.
The first full cast of names have been revealed, with a second cast of megastars set to be released in the coming days.
Those signed up and supporting this important cause with conversations of their own include… Lindsay Heather Pearce, Isaac Cole Powell, Nicole Raquel Dennis, Nick Adams, Rachel Tucker, Genesis Lynea, Jessica Vosk, Nina West, Ariana DeBose, Matthew Lopez, Marisha Wallace, Caroline Bowman, Aimie Atkinson, Vinegar Strokes, Laura Osnes, Robert Colvin, Alexandra Silber, Jacqueline Hughes, Julia Murney, Susan Egan, Jodie Jacobs, Darren + Michael Vinsen-Carnall, Hiba Elchikhe, Rebecca Lock, Joe McElderry, Mars Rucker, Arun Blair-Mangat, Hannah Waddingham, Christina Bianco, Philippe Touzel, Alex Thomas-Smith, Joseph Fletcher + many more.
The above conversations will support Covenant House and Switchboard LGBT+. All conversations will be held on InstaLive by Benjamin Rauhaula, and journalist William J Connolly.
A full scheduled list of talent, performers and how you can watch each live conversation, can be found at club11.london/theatrecamp, where donations can also be made to the charities this will support.
