Strictly dancers Pasha Kovalev and Anya Garnis are to co-create and present the first global charity live-stream variety show.

Rise Up With Arts will be available on Zoom on Saturday 27 March. It will see stars from the worlds of theatre, music and dance come together to celebrate the transformative power of the arts.

Joining Pasha and Anya will be: British lyricist Don Black OBE; choreographer Arlene Phillips; actress Lisa Riley; former Strictly winner Kevin Clifton; singer & actor Duncan James; Latin & Ballroom champion Robin Windsor; and West End favourite Kerry Ellis.

Stars from the musical Chicago, together with jazz performed by Benny Benack III from Jim Caruso’s Birdland New York, also feature.

Profit from ticket sales will support the Theatre Support Fund+ - creators of the iconic The Show Must Go On design, which has so far raised £600k for charities Acting For Others, Fleabag Support Fund and the NHS Covid-19 urgent appeal.

Early bird tickets costing £14 are available to purchase HERE until Friday 26 February. Full-price tickets at £21 will be available from Saturday 27 February until Sunday 28 March.

Rise Up With Arts will be available to watch via Zoom livestream on Saturday 27 March from 7.30pm to 9.30pm
