Nica Burns Chief Executive of Nimax Theatres said: “I am absolutely delighted to be welcoming Shanay Holmes and Chris Steward of West End Musical Productions as they make their West End producing debut with these joyful, fun and festive concerts at the Palace Theatre. I am a huge fan of their weekly West End Musical Brunch concerts in secret locations and their lock down drive-in musicals which sell out quickly. These concerts are going to be a wonderful way of celebrating Christmas in the company of a fantastic cast of West End stars so book your tickets now.”
West End Musical Productions create exciting new ways for fans to experience and celebrate musical theatre. ‘West End Musical Brunch’, London’s sell-out musical theatre themed party and immersive dining experience was forced to close temporarily due to lockdown. ‘West End Musical Drive In’ was set up in July and was the first live musical theatre concert to happen after lockdown. It has since become the biggest musical theatre concert series in history with over 70 star performers including Kerry Ellis, John Owen Jones, Alice Fearn, Layton Williams, Rachel Tucker, Trevor Dion Nicholas, Jamie Muscato, Sophie Evans, Louise Dearman, Lucie Jones, and 1000’s of guests attending 13 sell out concerts over three months.
