Fundraising - Musicals
Marisha Wallace, Wendy Mae Brown, Cavin Cornwall, Tyrone Huntley and Hugh Maynard from 'The Color Purple in Concert' reunite with the British Theatre Academy for a fundraiser video.
Sadly, The British Theatre Academy won't be bringing us the mesmerising talents of young actors, singers and dancers this summer due to the continuing coronavirus outbreak.
However, a video is being released to raise donations for the company.
West End stars Marisha Wallace, Wendy Mae Brown, Cavin Cornwall, Tyrone Huntley and Hugh Maynard have reunited with The British Theatre Academy Ensemble from their critically acclaimed production of The Color Purple in Concert to record the title number as a fundraiser.
Donations will provide free bursary places at The British Theatre Academy, with an emphasis on bursaries for young artists from Black, Asian or minority ethnic backgrounds, especially in cases where finance is a direct limitation to access to training.
The original concert was produced at Cadogan Hall in 2017 by The British Theatre Academy and Tarento Productions, with direction by Danielle Tarento, musical direction by James Taylor, choreography by Mykal Rand and sound design by Andrew Johnson.
