Stage & the City’s Charity Showcase 2021: The Show Must Go On!

Last weekend, Stage & the City celebrated its 6th Anniversary with a spectacular Charity Showcase. After being postponed due to the pandemic, Stage & City’s students presented a fundraising variety showcase to raise money for children with or affected by cancer.

Our fabulous Stage & the City students performed an exciting line-up of song and dance numbers in this year’s Charity Showcase at Mulberry Theatre. The fundraising event for the Fiorentini Foundation re-launched its scholarship campaign for children with or affected by cancer to attend the Anna Fiorentini Theatre & Film School.

Unfortunately, last year’s 5th Anniversary celebrations were postponed due to lockdown restrictions. But on 4th December 2021, Stage & the City’s adult students were able to welcome back audiences. The performers were made up of individuals who have day jobs and careers elsewhere but attend Stage & the City classes for fun, to develop new skills and to get opportunities to perform.

All proceeds from the Charity Showcase went to the Fiorentini Foundation’s Henry Cummings Fund. This provides scholarships for children with or affected by cancer who want to attend the Anna Fiorentini Theatre & Film School as a place to have fun and develop new skills.

Anna Fiorentini, founder and principal of Stage & the City said –

“We were so excited to be able to welcome back audiences at this fabulous Charity Showcase. Before the pandemic, the Fiorentini Foundation was supporting 12 students affected by cancer, giving them free access to our children’s stage school for much needed fun and respite. The pandemic prevented our fundraising activities and now we are trying to get back on track and continue to support these kids. This re-launch has been a huge success and I want to thank all the students, teachers, volunteers and tech crew who made the evening possible, alongside the audience members who kindly donated to this important cause.”

If you missed out on this fundraising event but would still like to give to this important cause, you can still donate to the Fiorentini Foundation here.

Since opening six years ago, Stage & the City has provided a range of after-work performing arts courses for adults across London. Students can learn news skills for personal or professional development whilst improving their social wellbeing in the process. All profits from these courses, or any performances, go to the Fiorentini Foundation, the charitable arm of the Anna Fiorentini Theatre & Film School. The Foundation provides bursaries for less privileged children that wish to access the performing arts and increase in confidence and self-esteem.
