BBC Children in Need Celebrity Line-Up For Pop Goes The Musical 2012

After its sensational West End debut last year, BBC Children in Need is thrilled to be working with the smash hits of London theatre to launch POP Goes the Musical 2012. This unique charity project is, for the second year running, challenging a group of renowned celebrities to tread the West End boards and perform a hit song from a top theatre show in the run up to BBC Children in Need Appeal Night on Friday 16th November.

The sensational celebrities involved in this year’s unique curtain call challenge include the legendary Geri Halliwell who will be adding her own spice to Singin’ in the Rain, the sensational Alexandra Burke who will be performing in Les Misérables, the ultimate boy band Blue will be taking on JERSEY BOYS, plus magnificent Macy Gray and chart-busters Stooshe will each separately put their own spin on a Michael Jackson classic in Thriller Live.

 Don’t miss out on what is set to be a series of nights to remember; your chance to experience all the fun of a West End Show with the addition of a one-off performance from your favourite artists. There will be no room for error as the celebrities follow the world-class casts of these legendary productions. The celebrities are proven stars but can they handle the pressure of a packed theatre?

 Bookings can be made immediately for the following dates:

 18th September 2012 – Les Misérables with Alexandra Burke

11th October 2012 – Jersey Boys with Blue

25th October 2012 – Singin’ in the Rain with Geri Halliwell

15th November 2012 – Thriller Live with Macy Gray and Stooshe

Tickets are available exclusively at and cost £80. Each ticket includes: Top Price seat, signed programme, a Pudsey bear, complementary drink plus access to a VIP after show reception hosted by Pudsey with the chance of an appearance from the star(s) of the show. Buying a ticket is a fun way to support the charity as 50% of the price of each ticket will go to the children and young people supported by BBC Children in Need.

Last year a host of celebs took to the West End stage to play their part in raising money for some of the UK’s most disadvantaged children. POP Goes the Musical 2011 saw fantastic performances from Peter Andre in Ghost the Musical, Sugababes in MAMMA MIA!, Stacey Solomon in WICKED, Dionne Bromfield in Million Dollar Quartet and Melanie C rocking out with legendary Brian May in We Will Rock You. With the help of our celebrity friends, in 2012 BBC Children in Need is able to give out a record breaking £46million to support disadvantaged children right here in the UK.
