Keith’s Rescue Dogs is set to gain a welcome profile boost when one of its animals plays a role in the Embassy School of Performing Arts’ new show this weekend.
The school will celebrated 50 years of musical theatre with a showcase of songs from the likes of Chicago, West Side Story, Annie, Jesus Christ Superstar, Les Miserables, Miss Saigon, Grease, Matilda, We Will Rock You, Mamma Mia and many more.
The famous show tunes will all be performed by the school’s students, as well as Seathorne and Richmond school choirs, adult group performers and special guest, Stefan Michaels, a West End actor and comedian.
And they will be joined on stage by rescue dog Daisy, who will be among the many first-timers making their debut on the Embassy stage as Annie’s dog “Sandy” from the famous stage musical.
“This is the second year we have been given the opportunity to drawn attention to our charity’s rescue dogs,” said Keith Smith.
“Last year Del-Boy played a blinder as Bulls-eye in the school’s performance of Oliver - now it’s Daisy’s turn!”
‘The Greatest Musicals of Our Time’ will be performed at the Embassy Theatre this Sunday, July 21 at 7.30pm.
Tickets are £11 (£9 for children) and available online at www.embassytheatre.co.uk or by calling 0845 674 0505.
“The students have worked so hard throughout the term – now’s their chance to bring all their efforts come together and really shine!” said proud principal Liza Walsh.
