The Oklahoma! national tour has arrived at the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre where members of the cast have taken part in a special warm-up ahead of the first ever Comic Relief Danceathon this Sunday (8th March 2015).
Nic Greenshields (who plays Jud Fry) said: "We simply couldn’t resist getting involved to show our support for this year’s Red Nose Day. The Comic Relief Danceathon looks really fun so we would love everyone in the area to get involved and help raise some all-important cash."
Lucy May Barker (who plays Ado Annie) said: "It’s always incredibly fun to get involved in Red Nose Day and this year will be no different. Simply pop on your dancing shoes this Sunday, grab your friends and get sponsored to dance along at home! By taking part you’ll be making a huge difference to the lives of people right here in the West Midlands, in the UK and across Africa."
The charity is calling on fundraisers to get together at home, in village halls, gyms or any location and dance non-stop for six hours. Fundraisers can follow a live, star-studded Danceathon at The SSE Arena, Wembley on the BBC Red Button. Over 2,000 fundraisers will dance non-stop at the fun filled Wembley event, hosted by Claudia Winkleman and with a host of famous faces set to join in too.
The money raised by the Comic Relief Danceathon will be spent across the West Midlands, all over the UK, and across Africa, helping vulnerable and disadvantaged people living incredibly tough lives. Please visit www.rednoseday.com/danceathon for further info.
