West End Calling

West End Calling presents the Grand Final!

Young performers from all over the UK have gone through three rounds to earn a place in the final here at the Charing Cross Theatre. After auditioning in front of a panel of West End stars, contestants went on to perform in the regional heats which were held in London, Manchester, Cardiff, Birmingham, Norwich and Edinburgh. If they were successful here, they then had to wow our judges at the Semi-Finals held in London, Manchester and Belfast to secure their place in the Grand Final.

Each contestant will perform a song from a musical to our live audience as well as a panel made up of West End stars! It will be up to the panel to decide who they will crown as the winner of this year's competition!

Our judging panel consists of Grace Mouat (& Juliet, Six, Be More Chill), Laura Pick (Wicked), Cleve September (In The Heights, Hamilton), Christine Bennington (Heathers, Bat Out Of Hell) and Natalie May Paris (Six).

The final is split into two parts - the Junior Final (4.00pm) and the Senior Final (7.00pm).

Come along and enjoy a day of musical theatre madness in the heart of the West End!

Marie Curie
Marie Skłodowska-Curie. Physicist. Pioneer. Parent.

As she arrives from her native home in Poland to study at Sorbonne University in Paris, young Marie Skłodowska is certain she can make a name for herself and change the course of science. She discovers radium, a new chemical element, with her husband Pierre Curie, and she’s lauded with the Nobel Prize.

But she is faced with an overwhelming moral dilemma. As Marie discovers the lifesaving potential of radium to cure cancer, factory workers handling the glowing substance are succumbing to the insidious grip of radium poisoning.

As a woman with society against her, can she wrestle with both the potential and danger of her discovery – and what is she if radium’s dangers overshadow its possibilities?

A story of life and death, ‘Marie Curie’ has already captivated audiences in Korea and Japan with its sweeping score and story and is now brought to London audiences for the first time in a stirring original production directed by Sarah Meadows (Ride).
