West End performers will be bringing songs from the shows to the Queen’s Theatre Foyer in a West End Extravaganza on Sunday October 24.

Taking to the Foyer stage in this fabulous revue of hit melodies from the West End and Broadway are Jenny Fitzpatrick, Jodie Jacobs, Sabrina Alloueche and Jack Shalloo – young vocalists from Romford, Hornchurch and Ilford, who have all starred in numerous hit shows.

The evening’s dazzling repertoire, starting at 7.30pm, will include classic show tunes by the likes of Cole Porter and Rodgers and Hammerstein to smash hit favourites from the biggest shows in town such as Oliver!, Wicked, Avenue Q, Little Shop of Horrors, Legally Blonde, The Lion King, Rent, We Will Rock You, Jesus Christ Superstar and Dream Girls.

Jenny, a former Abbs Cross School pupil, recently played the starring role of Nancy in Oliver! alongside Rowan Atkinson and Russ Abbott. She has also performed in Little Shop of Horrors, Rent and appeared as Nala in The Lion King in Paris.

Jodie, from Ilford, has starred as Eva Peron in Evita, and in Fame, Rent and Little Shop of Horrors.

Jack Shalloo, a former Colin’s Performing Arts School pupil, has appeared in the title role in Hamlet the Musical at the Edinburgh Festival.
