Show Boat’s leading lady, Gina Beck, joins the line-up for NYMT gala concert

Currently playing the role of Magnolia Hawks in the stunning Show Boat at the New London Theatre, Gina Beck has also now been confirmed as one of the stars in the line-up for ENCORE: 40 Years of NYMT.

Playing at the Adelphi Theatre on Sunday 30 October, Encore is a gala concert celebrating the 40th anniversary of the National Youth Music Theatre. The evening, which is produced by Stuart Piper and Jeremy Walker in association with WhatsOnStage, is set to feature a whole host past and present NYMT students, including Matt Lucas, Jason Robert Brown, Lily James, Lara Pulver, Toby Jones and the aforementioned Beck.

The school’s alumni also includes Jude Law, Jonny Lee Miller, Sheridan Smith and Idris Elba, and upcoming productions include a tour of John Rutter’s The Piper of Hamelin, the world premiere of new musical The Battle of Boat and Spring Awakening at the Curve, Leicester.

Beck continues in the role of Magnolia Hawks in Show Boat until the end of the month, when the gorgeous production will sadly close early following its triumphant run at the Sheffield Crucible Theatre last year and its West End transfer earlier this year.

We had the pleasure of returning to Show Boat for a second viewing just last week and confirm the show is still as sumptuous as ever.

Tickets for Show Boat can be bought at right now and we currently have an offer to save up to 44% on tickets.

Don’t miss it!
