West End Brides
In September 2012 Iris Theatre and St Paul’s Church presented West End Brides: A Musical Revue.
Covent Garden’s world famous ‘Actors’ Church’ has played host to some of the greatest stars in the world.
Marianne Benedict, Scarlett Strallen and Liz Robertson, were all married here at the Church. In this evening all about our West End Brides they were joined on stage by members of Sylvia Young Theatre School and Laine Theatre Arts, creating a unique evening of song and dance.
St. Paul’s Church award winning garden is a jewel in the crown of the West End, and a place of peace and serenity in an otherwise stressful part of the city. Sadly, the garden is now in danger because of subsidence, and the church urgently needs to raise £100,000 to save the gardens. West End Brides was part of the fundraising appeal, which was launched in May 2012 by Barbara Windsor.
The two hour show featured timeless classics from the greatest West End musicals, including My Fair Lady and Love Never Dies (which both starred Liz Robertson), Singing in the Rain (Scarlett Strallen) and The Wizard of Oz (Marianne Benedict).
