The West End production of Hamilton has announced a one-off gala performance of the show in aid of Sentebale, the charity founded by Prince Harry.
Every ticket sold for the performance of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit show on 29th August will raise money for Sentebale, a charity dedicated to raising funds and awareness for young people and children affected by HIV in southern Africa.
Hamilton’s producers, Jeffrey Seller and Cameron Mackintosh, said: “We are thrilled to be collaborating with Sentebale, the charity founded by the Duke of Sussex and Prince Seeiso, for this special performance of Hamilton at the Victoria Palace Theatre.
“Whilst there has been a significant advancement in the treatment and care of HIV, the virus sadly still affects whole communities in many parts of the world, and particularly in southern Africa. We are delighted to help raise funds for this extraordinary cause.”
The production stars Jamael Westman, Rachelle Ann-Go and Giles Terera. I saw it earlier this year and absolutely loved it.
Tickets for the charity event (which I have to say are very reasonably priced) are available here.
No word on whether Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan will attend.
