Battle of the West End is a fun filled stagey evening
featuring a musical director and three West End performers as
you've never seen them before.
All three take part in Act One with one being eliminated just before the interval by the audience who get to vote in a secret ballot.
The two survivors will battle it out in the Big Finale in Act Two.
Challenges will include :
That's Not My Show - Where each performer takes on a well known number from one of the other shows.
Everything Comes in Threes - An on the spot medley featuring all three performers chosen at random from the Musical Director.
The Musical Menu - The audience during the interval have the chance to pick from a Musical Menu. The performers do not know what's on the menu and will be assigned to perform a
'starter' which is a show tune from a brand new musical or the 'main course' a really well known show-tune from a classic musical. The 'dessert' will be a duet.
Hit the high note - The performers are challenged to perform songs completely
out of their range.
The Sing off Duet - One song sung by both performers taking on a bit each making it a full song.
The Big Finale - The two surviving performers get to perform a song of their choosing.
Following the Big Finale the audience once again get to vote on who should be crowned the winner! The prize is bragging rights for the performer and at each performance a member of the audience will be randomly selected from the secret ballots to win a bottle of bubbly.
