Presenter Jason Manford commented “I am thrilled to be back presenting Magic at the Musicals this year alongside Ruthie Henshall. The night is a real showcase of the talent we have in our musical theatre and this year it will be exciting to see some brand-new musicals at the Royal Albert Hall as well as welcoming back some favourites. It is a night not to be missed.”


Whilst co-host Ruthie Henshall said “Magic at the Musicals is one of my favourite nights of the year. The talent in one hall is unreal. I just stand in the wings watching with joy as each show does their thing. It always brings the house down.”


The six new shows join the five musicals previously announced in February, We Will Rock You, The Great British Bake Off Musical, Guys & Dolls, Crazy For You and Royal Shakespeare Company’s  Matilda The Musical.
