Wizard of Oz at a special gala performance on 21st April in support of Comic Relief

Follow the yellow brick road over the rainbow and into The London Palladium for a special Comic Relief gala performance of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new production, The Wizard of Oz. Starring Michael Crawford as The Wizard and Danielle Hope (winner of the BBC’s smash hit Over the Rainbow) as Dorothy.

This extra special night will be the only performance of the popular stage show to feature the dog ‘Dangerous Dave’ – BBC’s Over the Rainbow’s winning Toto!

The curtain is set to rise on this one time only event at 7.30pm on Thursday 21st April and all profits from the sale of this performance will go directly to Comic Relief.

Developed from the ever popular MGM screenplay this production, totally reconceived for the stage, contains all the much-loved songs from the Oscar winning movie score, all the favourite characters and iconic moments, plus a few surprises along the way, including new songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.

All profits from the sale of this performance will go directly to Comic Relief, which amounts to at least 29% of the ticket price.

Lembit Opik in stocks at Tower of London for Comic Relief

Former Liberal Democrat MP, Lembit Opik, has been captured by medieval wenches, courtesy of The Sims Medieval.  The notorious political figure will be held in stocks to allow the British public to have fun with Lembit, medieval-style, at the Tower of London1 on Thursday 17th March. 

Ready, aim, fire and enjoy this opportunity to laugh, have fun and raise some money for a great cause.  For every member of the British public that gets involved in this activity, The Sims Medieval will donate £1.00 to Comic Relief.  Ever seen a politician in stocks before?  It’s a site not to be missed – particularly one with a red nose!

Lembit Opik comments:

“This is a fun way for the British public to have fun and raise some money for Comic Relief, entirely at my expense.  The Sims Medieval allows you to play with life in a medieval setting and this is exactly what we’re doing.  I understand there’s even going to be a jester on hand, to ensure I really am a laughing stock.”

The Sims Medieval, a brand new release from the world’s most successful PC franchise The Sims, is available on PC/MAC from Friday 25th March 2011.
