All Star Musicals

All Star Musicals returns to ITV later this year for a spectacular one-off special that will see six celebrities flex their theatrical muscles on stage.  Each of the celebrities will embark on the ultimate musical theatre masterclass culminating in a show stopping one-night extravaganza.

John Barrowman is back as the show’s host with Elaine Paige heading up a panel of critics with a distinguished history in the West End and on Broadway.  Joining Elaine on the panel will be returning Trevor Dion Nicholas (Hamilton, Aladdin) and Samantha Barks (Les Miserables, Frozen).

Actress Jessica Hynes, barrister and broadcaster Robert Rinder, actor Barney Walsh, political journalist Robert Peston, doctor and presenter Dr Ranj Singh, and actress Luisa Bradshaw-White who will all be aiming to impress the star panel and virtual audience.

Robert Rinder - Be Our Guest - Beauty and the Beast
Jessica Hynes - When You’re Good To Mama - Chicago
Barney Walsh - Flash Bang Wallop - Half a Sixpence 
Ranj Singh - Come What May - Moulin Rouge
Luisa Bradshaw White - This Is Me - The Greatest Showman 
Robert Peston - Luck Be A Lady - Guys & Dolls 

The special, produced by Multistory Media, will see a host of famous faces take to the stage to perform an iconic musical number. Each of the celebrities, all of whom have been selected based on their stand out performance skills, will be aiming to impress the virtual audience, as well as the panel. 

Alongside the celebrities’ performances on stage, viewers will also get to see John, Elaine, Trevor and Samantha perform together in the show’s opening number.

The celebrities will be mentored by Elaine and supported by a West End chorus line and, in the lead up to their big performance, will receive training from expert choreographers and vocal coaches. The musical numbers performed will be from a range of famous musicals, both contemporary and traditional.

Each of the celebrities will be scored by the virtual audience and the critics with both votes combined to determine who will be ‘top of the bill’ and the 2021 All Star Musicals champion.
