Tyne Theatre Rep is proud to present another instalment of its highly acclaimed musical concert ‘Waiting in the Wings’.

Back by popular demand, a cast of West End stars return to bring you a repertoire of songs from the musicals, performed LIVE from the Tyne Theatre and Opera House with a socially distanced audience and streamed direct to your homes!

This show will see a new cast take to the stage, including six of our lead performers from our recent Sound of Silence production.

Our West End cast will be:

Carly Burns (Hairspray the Musical, Hair)
Jess Brady (Twang the Musical)
Adam Strong (Rock of Ages, The Voice UK)

Our show will also feature performances from West End Prep and two 2020 Musical Theatre graduates who entered our Search for a Star competition, Nathan Shaw and Jorja Foster. More details about our cast can be found on the Tyne Theatre Rep social pages.

So, whether it is in person or from the comfort of your sofa, make sure you join us for another fabulous night at the musicals!
