Amusical - the comedy show that celebrates musical theatre - has announced the first guests for its 2019 special at the Edinburgh Fringe.
The producers say: "Amusical is the perfect Edinburgh fairytale; to graft and build a following, sail that ship to Edinburgh, sell out the Grand, and miraculously get a TV pilot. It's that rare and precious triumph done through sheer hard work and favours from friends! With sequins and jazz hands in tow, a handful of comedians, along with music from in-house band Dave Cribb & The Quavers, will once again go up against each other to perform their favourite musical theatre song from stage or screen. It's then up to the audience to crown their winner, with all proceeds going to Waverley Care, Scotland's leading HIV and Hepatitis C charity."
The team will also host two smaller shows during this year's festival. They explain: "If another extravaganza of showstopping tunes, brilliant ballads and musical theatre classics wasn't enough, the Amusical team will host two brand new club nights for the first time at the Edinburgh Fringe, on the 23rd & 24th August at 12.30am at the Pleasance Ace Dome. Hosted by Jayde and Kiri, this will be Amusical-aficionado's opportunity to dance and sing along to musical theatre tunes as belted out live by Dave & The Quavers and watch some of their favourite comedians DJ the night away."
