Earlier this week, it was announced that West End and Broadway star Ruthie Henshall would headline a special performance of Side By Side By Sondheim.
This exclusive appearance marks her Australian debut: “I have always dreamed of singing in Sydney and to combine it with this worthycause is tremendous. I am beyond excited!”.
We can now announce that Henshall will be joined by the touring company of Side By Side By Sondheim: Rachael Beck, Margi de Ferranti, Enda Markey and narrator Jessica Rowe.
Among the other artists appearing on the night are: Peter Cousens (Miss Saigon, Les Misérables, The Phantom of the Opera); Michael Falzon (We Will Rock You), Ben Lewis (Love Never Dies); Stephen Mahy (Jersey Boys), Maria Mercedes (Love Never Dies, Sunset Blvd), one of Australia’s best loved actresses, Amanda Muggleton; Anna O’Byrne (Love Never Dies) and Geraldine Turner, who is recognised around the world as one of the foremost interpreters of Stephen Sondheim’s work.
These stars are taking to the stage to support the White Ribbon Foundation, Australia’s campaign to stop violence against women. Also in the cast as one of the evening’s narrators is Jessica Rowe's Weekend Sunrise colleague and chairman of the White Ribbon board , Andrew O’Keefe.
