West End comes to Worth

Tue, Oct 11th, 2022
Worth School

An amazing show titled West End to Worth will be taking place at the School in the new year, with professionals and celebrities performing alongside Worth students.

The show is being run in partnership with West End actor Matthew Goodgame and will be raising money for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Matthew has built up a relationship with Worth after visiting the School to teach our students how to hand jive ahead of last year’s production of Grease. He is currently starring in Jersey Boys at the Piccadilly Theatre. Matthew himself will be performing at West End to Worth and other confirmed acts are The Spinettes, who are a vintage harmony trio, and Ashley Stillburn, who played The Phantom in Phantom of the Opera in the West End last year. Further acts will be revealed in due course.

Worth Head of Drama Mrs Natalie Lynch said: “This follows on from the success of Cabaret in January 2020. Worth students will be performing alongside these seasoned acts and it looks set to be a magical, musical evening. We want to try to raise as much money as possible as so many people in our community are affected by Alzheimer’s or dementia in one way or another.”

The evening will take place at Worth on 14 January with a fizz and canapés reception, and a glitz and glamour dress code. Tickets are £40 and will be in high demand. They are available by emailing theatre@worth.org.uk

The Alzheimer’s Society is a charity close to the heart of Matthew Goodgame. Mrs Lynch recently interviewed Matthew to find out why and this video will be shown on the evening.
