“I’m delighted to be hosting Showtime Challenge 48-Hour Musicals’ production of Singin’ in the Rain at London’s Adelphi Theatre. Best of luck to the heroically plucky cast and crew who are giving up their time and energy to support the Lewy Body Society and the wonderful work they do.” Julian Clary

The cast

The cast will be made up of West End professionals and super-talented amateurs. They’ll be joined by a 30-piece orchestra, production team and our fabulous host Julian Clary. Everyone involved with the fully-staged, costumed and choreographed show gives up their time for free. All in aid of this year’s chosen charity, The Lewy Body Society

The charity

The Lewy Body Society was the first charity in Europe exclusively concerned with Lewy body dementia. Its mission is to fund clinical research to improve the diagnosis and treatment of the disease. It also raises awareness of Lewy body dementia among the general public and those in the medical profession and decision making positions, and provides information resources for patients & carers. www.lewybody.org

“We’re delighted to be the charity partner for this year’s 48-hour musical. It is a huge opportunity to raise awareness of Lewy body dementia and raise much-needed funds for research into the disease. We can’t wait to work with the fantastic Showtime Challenge team on what we’re sure will be a weekend to remember for everyone involved.” Jacqueline Cannon, CEO, The Lewy Body Society
