Tonight at Slide in Sydney, cast and crew members of the hit musicals Annie and Love Never Dies will be gussying up and de-freaking for an evening of music and song.
Annie and Love Never Dies in conjunction with The ANZ Trustees Foundation: Rob Guest Endowment presents Hard Knock Love, a unique, one off musical free for all!
Hosted by Nat and Adam from the web series Wheels of a Dream, Hard Knock Love will be a relaxed and fun night of entertainment celebrating the life of one of Australia’s leading Musical Theatre stars, Rob Guest OBE. After Guest’s sad passing in October 2008 at the age of 58, a memorial fund known as the The Rob Guest Endowment was established in his honour to help emerging young performers in musical theatre.
Ellen Simpson, co-organiser of the event and cast member of Love Never Dies, says the evening will be an opportunity for performers and crew in both shows to spread their wings and be creative in a different capacity.
“Tonight will be great way to get the casts of the productions that are in town to come together and be creative”, she said. “We are also both wrapping up our seasons here in Sydney, so it’s also nice to celebrate our time here in a concert together”.
Proceeds from tonight’s event will go to the 2012 Rob Guest Endowment.
Musically directed by Kellie Dickerson (Wicked, Dr Zhivago) doors open at 7pm and the show will kick off at 7:30pm.
Tickets are $20.00 and can be purchased through Ticketek here or at the door at SLIDE!Slide: (02) 8915 1899 41 Oxford St, Darlinghurst NSW
