West End stars announced for The Barn Theatre’s Amies & Clements virtual concert

A host of West End stars will sing the music of Amies & Clements in a virtual concert.

The Barn Theatre has announced an all-star West End line up for their fourth virtual concert, The Barn Theatre Presents: The Music of Amies & Clements, which will celebrate the work of award-winning musical theatre composers Stephanie Jayne Amies and Teddy Clements.

The concert, which will be hosted by Barn Theatre producer Jamie Chapman Dixon, will debut on the Barn Theatre’s Facebook and YouTube channels on 27 June 2020 at 7:30pm BST.

Amies & Clements are the composers behind the award-winning musical Tomorrow, Maybe and in 2016 they formed the Aardvarks’ Can’t Jump production company with their close friend and director, Kevin Jones to help workshop and support new musicals.

The concert line up consists of: Josh Andrews (42nd Street), Marcus Ayton (Shrek), Adam Bailey (The Book of Mormon), Rebecca Bailey (Tomorrow, Maybe), Cameron Bernard Jones (Tina the Musical), Esmée Cook, Hiba Elchikhe (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie), Phoebe Fildes (Assassins, Once), Aidan Harkins (The Importance of Being Earnest), Lucy Ireland, Sam Otto (The State), Evie Rose Lane (Footloose, Just So), Jodie Steele (SIX, Heathers), Bronte Tadman (Ben Hur).

As well as the performances, the musical theatre writers chat with Barn Theatre producer Jamie Chapman Dixon about their careers so far, the creation process behind their songs and special appearances from some of the performers to discuss their experience rehearsing and recording from home.

The concert is the fourth edition of the Barn Theatre in Cirencester’s virtual concert series, The Barn Presents, which celebrates the work of British musical theatre composers.

The next – celebrating musical theatre playwright, lyricist and director Annabel Mutale Reed – will debut on 11 July 2020 at 7:30pm BST. The line-up for this concert will be announced at a later date.
