All Star Musicals 

 

John Barrowman will host a brand new All Star Musicals alongside a panel of critics compiled of some of the West End and Broadway's most distinguished talent, led by theatre legend Elaine Paige.

 

Elaine Paige will be joined by Broadway icon, Tony and Emmy winner Kristin Chenoweth, dance sensation Kevin Clifton and West End star Trevor Dion Nicholas.

 

Seven celebrities will be flexing their theatrical muscles as they embark on the ultimate musical theatre masterclass in a show stopping one night spectacular.

 

Broadcaster Alan Titchmarsh, money expert Martin Lewis, Only Fools and Horses actress Tessa Peake Jones, I’m A Celebrity: Extra Camp host Joel Dommett, comedian London Hughes, Coronation Street star Daniel Brocklebank and Emmerdale actress Amy Walsh, will be aiming to impress the audience and the star panel, all of whom will be judging them based on their performing credentials. 

 

The show will feature numbers from a range of famous musicals, both contemporary and traditional, with the theatre audience deciding at the end of the night whose performance wowed them the most.

 

The celebrities will be supported by a spectacular West End chorus line and, in the lead up to their big performance, will receive training from expert choreographers and vocal coaches. 

 

John Barrowman said "I can’t wait to bring something fabulous to the TV screens, working with new friends and teaming up with some special old friends, this should be a great night of entertainment - let’s make All Star Musicals Fabulous."

 

Elaine Paige added "All Star Musicals is the perfect opportunity for me to channel two of my greatest passions - musical theatre and mentoring. I'm looking forward to following the celebrities on their journey to performing on London's most prestigious stage, and of course it's an added bonus to have a front row seat on the night itself!"

 

Siobhan Greene, Head of ITV Entertainment said "I love this show and it's brilliant to have it back for another night at the Palladium. An 'OMG' cast of celebrities to be announced, a "Fabulous" host in John Barrowman and a panel that are all the absolute real deal.... this is going to be a five star treat."

 

Richard Hastings, Creative Director, Shiver said “All Star Musicals is back at a time when musical theatre is in rude health in the U.K and who better to mentor our celebrities than the legend that is Elaine Paige? Elaine is an icon of both the West End and Broadway and will give the programme an extraordinary authenticity, as well as add a massive sprinkling of stardust to proceedings.”

 

All Star Musicals is commissioned by Siobhan Greene, Head of ITV Entertainment, Louise Major, Assistant Commissioner and Peter Tierney, Assistant Commissioner. Executive producers for Shiver are Richard Hastings and Leanne Witcoop and Series Producer is Lewis Thurlow.
