A musical spectacular featuring beloved songs from West End and Broadway productions is to be staged in aid of our campaign.

The Recorder is delighted to reveal that the Brookside Theatre is hosting The Magic of the Musicals, a concert celebrating the very best of modern-day shows.

It will take place on September 4 and 5 at the theatre, in Eastern Road, Romford, which was formerly the Romford War Memorial Social Club.

Manager Jai Sepple said: “The Brookside Theatre is pleased and proud to be supporting the Romford Recorder and First Step with this special performance.

“It will feature many unforgettable hits, performed by a high-energy and talented cast of local performers with special guests.”

The audience will be entertained with songs from acclaimed musicals including Wicked, Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, Jersey Boys, We Will Rock You, Miss Saigon and The Lion King.

Talented singers and dancers in the borough have the chance to take part, as the theatre is encouraging performers to come forward.

You can get in touch by calling 01708 755775 or emailing

The production is set to be a highlight for everyone involved.

Jai said: “The concert promises to be an evening of back-to-back showstoppers and unarguably the area’s musical event of the year.”

Tickets will be on sale soon.
