To celebrate its first birthday in the West End, St Patrick’s Day and Arthur Darvill’s first performance, Once will join forces with the charity Oxfam for a Gala Night on 17th March 2014. Specifically fundraising for Oxfam’s Mother Appeal, the West End cast of Once will be joined by a VIP audience at the Phoenix Theatre.
Oxfam’s Mother Appeal celebrates mums around the world and aims to help mothers worldwide lift themselves and their families out of poverty for good. The appeal, which runs until the end of March, hopes to raise over £10 million for Oxfam’s vital work. Tickets go on sale today for the Gala with prices from £30.00 – £200.00. Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Oxfam’s Mother Appeal.
Also announced today is that on 17th March 2014, Arthur Darvill, who has previously played the role in the Broadway production, will join the West End cast of Once to play the leading role of Guy. The eight-time Tony award-winning musical last month released over 400,000 new tickets for sale, taking bookings at the Phoenix Theatre to 4 July 2015. Directed by John Tiffany, Once opened at the Phoenix Theatre in April last year where it has been acclaimed by audiences and critics alike.
